As for her regimen, Larkins, who adopted a vegan diet 27 years ago, credits her growing her own fruits and vegetables and juicing daily. Larkins is no stranger to the small screen—she previously produced a DVD about the benefits of a raw diet—but is welcoming the sudden attention as an opportunity to educate others.
