How to EAT your vitamins!

How to Eat Your Vitamins

It's possible to get your daily quota from your plate instead of the drugstore shelf. Here, the nutrients you need every day and how to get them from your diet.

Pills might seem like an easy fix, but food provides an abundance of nutrients, as well as fiber, that pills lack, says Mary Ryan, a registered dietitian in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

These nutrients are what keep your body functioning at its best―building strong bones; improving brainpower, mood, and memory; and possibly helping the immune system ward off ailments both small (a cold) and large (cancer).

"Vitamins should be used only as supplements to the diet, not substitutes for healthy food," says Jeffrey Blumberg, Ph.D., director of the antioxidant research lab at Tufts University, in Boston.

I use frozen spinach and fruits. I often buy more fresh and never eat it all, so easier to buy the frozen kind. I buy the no added sugar ones.

Quoting sassymomntx1961:


Quoting elijahsmama09:I eat spinach like a lettuce leaf. I also blend it into smoothies. You cant tell from the taste.

Whats the best way to use it in smoothies,frozen or fresh?

I try to eat most of those list's, I also supplement with a daily vitamin because I know I don't get enough of what my body needs.
