So, apologies for the lack of a Monday entry. Blame my mom (kidding!). But seriously, I was inspired by a conversation I had with my mom. She asked me for advice on a good brand of Vitamin B-complex, and of course I ask (because I'm nosy), "Why do you take a vitamin instead of getting it from food?" And my mom replied, "How would I get 100% of all the B vitamins from food?"
After spending hours researching all the B vitamins, finding food sources, and creating a one-day meal plan which contains almost 100% DRI/DV of all B vitamins, I decided to start a series about vitamins. I've still got a lot more research to do about Vitamin B - there's a lot of them! And the meal plan I did for my mom contains oats, because that's what she already eats for breakfast, so I want to figure out a grain-free plan. But so far, it's been fun and enlightening, and the more I discover, the more I love whole, real food. Today's entry is a brief look at Vitamin A. And stay tuned at the end of the article for some EXCITING NEWS.
