With overcast winter behind us and Spring Showers in full play we are still seeking to get our extra dose of Vitamin D from food sources until Summer comes around.
Vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium and is an important nutrient for growth, development and healing of bones. It also helps with immune health, inflammation response and promoting healthy skin. . The recommended amount of Vitamin D is 600IU.
Fatty Fish (Wild Caught Salmon) : 500 IU
Shrimp and Sardines : 4 oz – 165 IU
Fortified Sources :
Orange Juice : 25% of the Daily Value (Same as Dairy Milk)
Almond Milk : 25% of the Daily Value (Same as Dairy Milk)
Cereal : Keep in mind sugar levels when choosing cereal.
Not Included: Because I don’t recommend dairy in the diet I have excluded Cheese, Egg Yolks and Dairy Milk.
