Your Daily Dozen!

Through my Vegan Vitality course I seek to share ideas and recipes for a more healthy way of eating. In our rushed busy lives it is easy to over-rely on convenience foods. In this course it’s good to focus is on nutrient-rich fruit and vegetables, beans and whole grains

The daily dozen as recommended by Michael Greger in How Not to Die is a particularly useful guide. For my last course I set the portions out on a work station for everyone to see.

Your daily dozen!


Some items are really easy to include naturally and some are a bit more of a challenge!

  • Beans
  • Berries
  • Other fruit
  • Cruciferous vegetables
  • Greens
  • Other vegetables
  • Flaxseeds
  • Nuts and Seeds
  • Spices
  • Whole grains
  • Beverages
  • Exercise

 Breakfast is a good way to start with a portion of grain, topped with berries, fruit nuts and a tablespoon of flaxseed.

For lunch a portion of hummus or bean pate with veg sticks, broccoli, and wholegrain flat bread. Or a leafy salad with beans.

The evening meal could be a simple tofu stir fry with vegetables and greens served with wholegrain rice.

I’d really recommend reading the book and having a go at the daily dozen challenge!
