What Martha Stewart Eats to Make 75 Look Like 45

From her special green juice to nontraditional flours.

During her appearance on "The Dr. Oz Show" on Wednesday, 75-year-old Martha Stewart was presented with four photos of herself: one from 2001, one from 2006, one from 2010, and one from present-day. And yet, in every single one of them, the home and lifestyle icon looked exactly the same. Consider us impressed!

So, how exactly does Stewart do it? Although she does credit regular exercise and good genes for helping her age so gracefully ("My mother's skin was pretty smooth at 93," she told Dr. Oz), she also says her diet has played a big role.

Here's a closer look at four of Stewart's healthy-eating habits:

1. SHE DRINKS GREEN JUICE EVERY MORNING.

Although few things in the super-busy media maven's life remain constant, Stewart's breakfast routine is unwavering: "I drink green juice every single morning," she said.

In 2014, Stewart shared her favorite recipe with TODAY, so you can sip on the same exact concoction. And if you really want to emulate Stewart's anti-aging a.m. routine, you can try treating yourself to some special skincare: She told Dr. Oz that she uses a hydrating mask on her face, décolletage, and hands every day after she wakes up.

2. SHE KEEPS A GARDEN WHERE SHE GROWS HER OWN ORGANIC VEGGIES.

When it comes to produce, Stewart keeps things super-fresh and hyperlocal. So local, in fact, that she grows most of the veggies she eats. "I make [my green juice] out of vegetables that I grow," Stewart explained. "I grow in the greenhouse in the winter and the garden in the summer. And they're organic vegetables."

3. SHE STICKS WITH FISH FOR THE MOST PART.

These days, Stewart gets most of her protein from seafood. "I eat well," she told Dr. Oz. "I don't eat a lot of meat — more of a fish-based diet."

And science backs up Stewart's decision to go semi-pescatarian — the popular Mediterranean diet, which includes eating more fish and less red meat, has been found to help with weight loss, increase "good" cholesterol, improve brain health and lower risk for heart disease.

4. SHE OPTS FOR NONTRADITIONAL FLOURS.

You didn't think Stewart would leave out her best baking tips, did you? The pastry pro revealed to Dr. Oz that she's recently started experimenting with alternatives to regular white flour, opting instead for other varieties that have more nutritional value.

"I think that we've become very reliant on the soft, white flours, which are not necessarily the most nutritional, the healthiest, the best for you. So we've done a lot of experimentation," she explained. "You can search for the best ingredients, and there are so many small mills that are really grinding up some really great flours these days."
