Hey Lovelies, as you all know summer has long gone and the blissful autumn is well and truly here. Although there are many things we treasure from the colder seasons like pumpkin spice everything, golden leaves and Christmas time there is always that one thing missing – the sun!! The sun along with bringing us lots of summer memories also boosts our vitamin D levels. Vitamin D has many amazing benefits to our health and wellbeing including helping us stay happy, low levels are often seen in people that are suffering from depression. Now i’m not going to suggest we all run down Holland & Barrett and pick up the closest pack of Vit D pills although this is fine too. I’m instead recommending lots of foods riveting with the stuff and ways we can incorporate them into our autumnal eating. I wish I could have created my own recipes for you but I’m not that creative in the kitchen, instead I have provided links to some amazing recipes by the pro’s. So get in that kitchen and turn that frown upside down 🙂
The highest sourced fish for vitamin D are trout, mackerel, salmon. Other options to up your levels are swordfish, canned trout and smoked white fish.
