Are You Getting the Right Nutrient Combos? Calcium and Vitamin D

Yogurt

Calcium and Vitamin D are another set of important nutrients that work more efficiently in combination. You always want to make sure you are not only getting the vitamins and minerals your body needs but also getting the most benefit out of them as well!

YogurtCalcium Food Sources:

Dairy products are well known for their high calcium. Most popular are low fat milk, yogurt and cheese. You want to keep these foods in moderation as they can be high in calories and saturated fats. Other ways to get calcium include: spinach, kale, okra, and white beans.

Vitamin D Food Sources:

The sun is one of the best Vitamin D sources, but it’s not always feasible to catch some rays. The time of year and weather play big factors in how much sun you can get. So here are some other great options. Salmon, Herring, Tuna, Mushrooms, egg yolks, and shrimp.

Perfect Meal Combos:

Make an omelette with mushrooms, spinach and low fat mozzarella cheese. Or grill up some salmon with a side of sautéed spinach.
