FARM TO TABLE – INCORPORATING VITAMIN D INTO YOUR DIET

Challenges of incorporating Vitamin d into your diet:

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin. This means that your body can store extra amounts of vitamin D.
It is important to get enough vitamin D from your diet because it helps our bodies absorb and use calcium and phosphorous for strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D can help protect older adults against osteoporosis.

Vitamin D can also protect against infections by keeping your immune system healthy.
It may help reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases such as multiple sclerosis and certain types of cancer, such as colorectal cancer but this is still being studied.

Vitamin D is not found naturally in many commonly consumed foods. In Canada, some foods such as milk, soy or rice beverages and margarine have vitamin D added to them. Good food sources of vitamin D include certain kinds of fish, egg yolks and milk

FATTY FISH
Fatty fish can be a good source of vitamin D. Common options include salmon, trout, mackerel, tuna, and eel.

CANNED TUNA FISH
Fresh fish aren’t the only way to boost your vitamin D intake; you can get vitamin D from a can, too

FORTIFIED MILK
Almost all types of cow’s milk in the U.S. are fortified with vitamin D, but ice cream and cheese are not.

EGG YOLKS
Eggs are a convenient way to get vitamin D. They’re popular in many breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert recipes.

BEEF LIVER
Although it might not be the most appealing source, a 3.5-ounce serving of cooked beef liver contains about 50 IUs of vitamin D—and several other nutrients. You’ll also be getting vitamin A, iron, and protein
