Are You Up for the Challenge?

Take the Daily Dozen Challenge

Today we are launching a Daily Dozen Challenge to help more people discover how easy it is to fit some of the healthiest of healthy foods into their daily routine. I’m kicking it off by publicly challenging three of my friends and you to try to check off all the Daily Dozen servings for one day (based on my Daily Dozen checklist).

Watch the kickoff video here. Then you challenge more people, and on and on, and soon lots of people will be eating healthy! 

Join me by:

  1. Accepting the challenge: Pick a day to eat the Daily Dozen, and then release your own public announcement asking others to do it.
  2. Posting a picture or video about your experience and tagging 3 more people to challenge them: Use the hashtags #HowNotToDie and #DailyDozenChallenge in your announcement post and ask others to do the same. Let people know they can track their Daily Dozen on our free iPhone and Android apps. You can challenge 3 people personally, or ask all of your friends!
  3. If you or your “challengees” are unable to complete the Daily Dozen challenge you can ask them to consider donating $12 to help spread this life-changing life-saving info to others.

If you don’t have it yet, my new cookbook has tons of green-light recipes to help reach the Daily Dozen (all of the proceeds from my books go to charity). My neat new video on The Daily Dozen is going live on tomorrow, March 30th, but you can catch it early on our YouTube channel

As we roll out this challenge, keep an eye on our social media pages where we will be doing contests for books, shirts, and even the beautiful Daily Dozen poster



Get the App

Just in time for the Daily Dozen Challenge, we released our totally updated iPhone app! Those of you on Android have had all these nifty features, and now our iPhone users can check out the updates here, which include the option to track your progress over multiple days and enable a daily reminder to record your items.
