As part of their Eating to 100 series, TODAY.com explores recipes that promote longevity from the book The Blue Zones Solution: Eating and Living Like the World’s Healthiest People.

In this installment, the US television program shows us recipes from Nicoya, Costa Rica, where about one in 250 people live to age 100 — a lot more than the roughly one in 4,000 who make it to that age in the United States.

Healthy carbohydrates like beans and whole grains are the cornerstone of the diet in this healthy Blue Zone.
