I’m a big fan of Dr. Michael Greger. He’s a physician, author, and internationally recognized speaker on a number of important public health issues. His nonprofit, NutritionFacts.org is a science-based, non-commercial website to provide free daily videos and articles on the latest discoveries in nutrition. If you’re an information nerd like I am you’ll find this stuff fascinating.
In his book “How Not to Die” (http://NutritionFacts.org/book) he shares his “Daily Dozen”, which is Dr. Greger’s list dentifying the healthiest, nutritious foods to eat and how many servings of each we should try to consume every day. (Technically there are 10 foods but he includes water and exercise and 11 and 12).
He also has a free app, Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen that you can download (for iPhone and Android phones). I use it as a reminder to include these healthy foods/habits every day and some folks actually check off the boxes available to track their servings.
It’s a simple way to be mindful of what you’re eating and helping you stay on point. And I like simple.
Now go run!
