Dr. Greger is a major supporter of beans since they are high in protein and fibre and have a tonne of health advantages. The doctor advises you to have 3 servings of beans each day, such as 1/2 cup of cooked beans and 1/4 cup of hummus.
It is not surprising that berries are on the list because they are nutritious powerhouses packed with antioxidants. Dr. Greger advises consuming one serving, or about half a cup, of fresh berries each day.
Everyone is familiar with the proverb “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” In this instance, it appears that you require three pieces of fruit or three apples daily. Three servings of different fruits are included in the Daily Dozen each day.
You may maintain your ideal weight and enhance your health by eating one serving (1/2 cup chopped) of cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, or kale.
A diet abundant in leafy greens, according to all doctors, can lower the risk of obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, and mental decline. Dr. Greger advises eating two servings each day of either 1 cup raw or 1/2 cup cooked food for this reason.
Two servings of other vegetables, with a serving size of about a half cup each, are also included in the Daily Dozen.
Flaxseeds are loaded with health advantages! They are rich in lignans, a class of phytonutrients, omega-3 fatty acids, and fibre. One tablespoon of ground flaxseeds each day is what Dr. G recommends.
Nuts and Seeds
Not only are nuts delicious but they are also a good source of protein. Most nuts also contain at least some of these heart-healthy substances: unsaturated fats. The Daily Dozen stipulates that you eat 1/4 cup of nuts (unsalted, raw) or two tablespoons of nut butter a day.
