Planner Page with Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen

 Daily Dozen Planner Page
Dr. Greger is my favorite source for evidence-based health advice. I just bought his new book and one of the best parts is reading about Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen and his favorite ways to check off each one. The Daily Dozen is a list of things you should eat or do every day, based on the Doctor's extensive research.

Just as I was hacking away at making a planner page with check boxes, I saw that a new app for tracking the Daily Dozen came out! I downloaded the Android version, but I'm still often a paper-and-pencil sort of organizer. If you are too, feel free to download the PDF of this planner page.

The size is about A5 (6x8.5"); if you'd like me to develop a larger size email me and I'll give it a try! Click on the picture for the download link.

If you haven't purchased the book yet, you can do so here. (affiliate link)

To do list:

1. Drink plenty of water
2. Get adequate, quality sleep
3. Take Vitamin D and B12
4. Meditate regularly
5. Floss your teeth
6. Minimize or eliminate extracted oils, excess sugars, white flour, animal products and           processed food 
7. Exercise daily: yoga, resistance, cardio
8. Read the research:

This is a list of the top 50 Vegan Blogs. It is a bit overwhelming. I've used recipes from many of these food writers and I've never been disappointed. Even if you just check out the first 10, you'll find some great new dishes to try. Most are easy to adapt to truly plant-based (low sugar, no oil) if that is the way you want to go. Some of the blogs are all plant-based and oil-free, such as

These books are great resources for recipes and information:
