The original diet that God assigned to mankind was fruits and vegetables (Genesis 1:29). Anything from the plant kingdom was fair game (except for the fruit of one tree, of course).

Only after the drastic changes of a global flood and the addition of a meat-eating diet did man's life-span diminish.
