  Pillsbury's winter shape sugar cookies are already here for the holidays Pillsbury’s limited-edition winter shape sugar cookies are back on grocery store shelves. The tiny disc-shaped dessert is available year-round with a rotating cast of characters from pumpkins to bunnies, but since the holidays are on the horizon, a festive cold-weather lineup is upon us. The Best Cookie in Every State While there are no new designs this year, amateur bakers can look forward to colorful imprints of a reindeer, Christmas tree, snowman (kind of looks like Frosty) and an elf, inspired by Will Ferrell’s movie that came out 16 years ago.

When Suzanne Somers was in her 50s, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and totally lost her libido. Now, more than 20 years later, the Three's Company star has released her 27th book, A New Way To Age, to share how she overhauled her lifestyle—including her sex life.

"I've heard so many women my age say that they are past that, and I think, too bad you're in that mindset, because a healthy person is a sexual person," Somers tells Prevention.com. "I have a sexy image, which I enjoy, and that's the best part of being in good health. I'm 73, and I still got it!"

49 Unique Doughnuts You Have to Try

  49 Unique Doughnuts You Have to Try Forget traditional — deluxe, artisanal doughnuts are a fancy food trend that's lasted for years. Some of the names might sound bizarre or less than appealing — Dirt, Bone Marrow Chocolate, and Purple Pig — but that doesn’t mean they aren’t delicious. See where you can find these unique treats for a special sugar fix.

Today, Somers is not only cancer-free, but she says she feels happier and healthier than ever before. "I don't look at cancer in my life as a negative," she says, adding that she has sex with her 83-year-old husband twice a day. "A New Way To Age is my 27th book, and it's been a process of self-education and [a] journey toward health over the years."

She wants other women to know that they too can take control of their health and enjoy the aging process, so here are her best tips for healthy aging.

1. She avoids processed foods.

In 2001, Somers was diagnosed with breast cancer, so she decided to make some lifestyle changes. "When I heard these three words: You have cancer, I remember thinking, what have I done in my diet and lifestyle to play host to this terrible disease?" Somers recalls about her diagnosis.

  Undeclared Viagra ingredient triggers libido-boosting supplement recall The product is contaminated with sildenafil, an “FDA-approved prescription drug for erectile dysfunction."The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) late last week announced the recall of Med Man’s Up2 Dietary supplement because the product is contaminated with sildenafil, an “FDA-approved prescription drug for erectile dysfunction,” according to a news release on the recall.

Following the news, Somers overhauled her diet almost immediately. "I decided to eat like my life depended on it," she says. "I stopped eating all processed foods."

Now, she only eats foods that she can "pick, pluck, milk, or shoot," and that's how she's been living for decades. Somers has a garden right in her backyard in the desert. "I brought in organic soil, put in a water purification system, and planted organic seeds and plants," she said. "We mainly eat all of our produce from the garden."

The actress starts her day with a green smoothie, loaded with kale, spinach, apple, ginger, and other produce. For lunch, she tries to stay low-carb with a protein and vegetable, like salad with chicken, goat cheese, and fennel topped with olive oil.

Everything that Somers cooks is flavored with natural spices and oils. For dinner, she enjoys a wide variety of options, but a dish she likes to make often is marinated lamb with rosemary, garlic, olive oil, and red pepper flakes. She pairs that with red yams infused with organic butter. "I'm a big believer in flavor," she said, adding that her husband loves the meals she cooks.

2. She monitors her hormones.

Somers believes that an imbalance of hormones led to her development of breast cancer in her 50's. "Every year, I get lab testing done to show my hormone levels," she says. "I take supplements and vitamins determined by my deficiencies, and aim to keep everything in perfect balance."

Somers takes supplements to fulfill her B12, magnesium, and zinc levels, among others. She also supplements with prebiotics and probiotics.

3. She's done yoga every other day for 19 years.

Somers has performed the same exercise routine for nearly two decades, and her workout of choice is yoga. "I have done yoga every other day for 19 years. I will do yoga until the day I die," she says.

Dolph Lundgren Says a Plant-Based Diet Has Improved His Sex Life

  Dolph Lundgren Says a Plant-Based Diet Has Improved His Sex Life The "Game Changers" documentary has convinced yet another muscular star to go vegan — this time, it’s Dolph Lundgren.He said he made the switch after watching the Arnold Schwarzenegger-produced documentary on Netflix. “I checked it out and then I figured I would try it out,” Lundgren told Morgan, according to reports.

For the first 15-20 minutes of her yoga sessions, she "stretches and stretches," carefully not to jolt any of her muscles, for a warmup. Then, she goes through deeper stretches and movements, usually outside her Arizona home, beneath the sunshine.

Somers says that her active lifestyle over the years has allowed her to remain "agile" and avoid bone loss. "I'm around some of my friends who are my age or older, and they're out of gas. I have great energy at this age. It's great!" she says. "But it's never too late!"

4. She has sex twice a day.

Somers credits her lifestyle and balanced hormones to her healthy sex life with her husband—but it wasn't always this way. In her 50s, she says her hormones were imbalanced. "Not only was I in a bad mood all of the time, not sleeping well, and feeling constantly itchy, but I also had no libido," she says. "I couldn't feel [aroused]."

But after switching up her lifestyle to focus on her health, Somers said her sex life greatly improved. Today, she feels "sexy" and confident. "I like the way I look, I like the way I feel, and I like the way I have a healthy libido," she says.

5. She uses organic skincare and hair products.

The Three's Company star approaches her skincare routine not only with aging in mind, but with her health as well. "The skin is the largest organ in the body, and we put chemicals all over it," she says. "That's why I created my organic, certified toxic-free skincare line, Suzanne Organics."

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Reveals She's 'Cancer Free' in New Interview

  Ruth Bader Ginsburg Reveals She's 'Cancer Free' in New Interview In addition to pancreatic cancer, Ginsburg previously survived colon cancer and also recovered from three broken ribs after a 2018 fall, which led to the discovery of the modules on her lung for which she received treatment in late 2018. At the Berggruen gala last month, Ginsburg addressed her health while speaking about the camaraderie between the Supreme Court justices, despite their opinions on the law.“As different as we are, the court is the collegial place I’ve ever worked,” she said.

In the mornings, Somers begins her routine by washing her face with an exfoliating peach cleanser. "If I have time, a few times a week I'll put on a recovery mask with peptides and lentil extracts for about 20 minutes," she says. "Then, I use my aging serum followed by the CoQ10 moisturizer, which isn't greasy."

The actress is a huge fan of makeup, which inspired her to create organic, toxic-free products. "I love makeup," she says, adding that although her makeup is very clean, she still takes it off before bed. "Each night I use our everyday cleanser to take off my makeup, which has an olive base," she says. "Then, I spray on our olive leaf and willow herb toner." Afterwards, Somers targets aging with her ageless serum and eye cream.

Occasionally she likes to unwind with an Epsom salt bath at night, and puts a coconut oil mask in her hair and on her face while she relaxes.

Nice way to enjoy the daisies blooming on the mountain. Happy Superbloom!!

6. She listens to her body.

While Somer's 27 books explain her unique perspective on healthy aging, she emphasizes that every person is different, that's why it's important to tune into your own body.

"Pay attention to the language of your body. The body talks all the time, and we rarely listen," she says. "My big message to aging women is, it's not over. We women are so incredible. We work, raise our children, run our households, and do a million things in a day." But she says that women have to prioritize their their health, too.

At 73, Somers loves where she's at in life because she has prioritized her health for decades. She's also looking forward to this chapter of her life with her husband. "Normally at this age, people are sick. We're in great health," she says. "We go out, we laugh, he makes great coffee in the morning, we dance at night. I've really never been this happy."
