So lately it feels as though most women I know are told by their doctors that they are vitamin D and/or calcium deficient. I was told that in the last year. I thought I ate healthy so that was taken care of. I hate taking those big horse-pills and told the doctor so. She suggested that I take those chocolate chew vitamins for D and Calcium. Guess what? Yep, mine have corn syrup, sucrose, nonfat dry milk (trying to not do dairy), and corn syrup solids – whatever that is. oh yeah, and soybeans. scary. And that was the better of my choices in the pharmacy area.
So as I mentioned if you are trying to avoid dairy products like I have been, what do you do to combat this deficiency?
I thought I’d look into what foods I can eat (that aren’t dairy) that are rich in these areas. Click on the link for a list. I love a lot of the ideas, and I will be more aware to eat the yellow of my egg too…and I may just decide that swallowing the horse-pills are worth it. yuck. Let me know if you have any sneaky tricks to get those vitamins in.
