Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen Challenge

In early May, Larissa and I challenged the members of our closed Facebook Group, The Peas and Carrots Society to Dr. Michael Greger’s Daily Dozen Challenge. You might remember that Dr. Michael Greger is the founder of Nutritionfacts.org, which is a website we dedicated an entire episode of our podcast to (episode 246) because we thought it was a really awesome resource. In today’s episode of the Vegetarian Zen podcast, we’re going to talk about what was involved in Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen challenge and share some comments from those of our members who joined us in our week-long journey.
