Just in time for her 96th birthday, Betty White is opening up about her health habits, her take on life and her incredible 75-year-long Hollywood career.

Speaking to Parade of the diet that helped her reach 96 in such a marvelous state, the beloved comedian said: vodka and hot dogs, “probably in that order.”

She added that her only tip for living a healthy and balanced life is to “enjoy life, accentuate the positive, not the negative. It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’ It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look.”
