Eat Your Vitamins

 

 

 

 

 

I love to eat, but I do make an effort to make sure that the foods I make are not only tasty, but also nutritious. My family relies on my knowledge of nutrition to provide them with meals that will enhance their health. (It’s a tough job but somebody has to do it).

The tide has turned and health experts are supporting a more balanced approach to supplements which is why it’s so important to try and get as many nutrients from the foods we eat as possible, keeping in mind that the average diet is poor when it comes to meeting recommended intakes of vitamins and minerals.

Eating healthfully takes some diligence but soon becomes second nature. You know that folate packed green leafy vegetables are good for you, as are whole grains, nuts and fruits. Your mission, if you decide to accept, is to eat your vitamins.

Things like carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach and eggs for vitamin A. Citrus fruits and juices, red and green bell peppers, kiwi, broccoli and cantaloupe for vitamin C. Salmon, tuna, egg yolks and oysters for vitamin D. You’ll get lots of vitamin E by eating nuts, seeds and wheat germ, and vitamin B12 is readily available in meat, poultry, fish, shellfish, milk and fortified breakfast cereals.

You get the picture. Seek and yee shall find.

Buona Salute! To Your Health~Janet
