Girls! Are You Getting the Necessary Five Nutrients in your Diet?

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture women are not getting enough of five critical nutrients: Vitamin E, Potassium, Calcium, Vitamin A and Magnesium. Covenant Health System offers ways to get more of that group in your diet. (1) To get more of the antioxidant VITAMIN E, eat sunflower seeds, wheat germ flakes, red bell peppers and peanut butter. (2) POTASSIUM regulates your nervous system and they advise eating a baked potato with the skin, try some edamame, or feast on cooked spinach, lentil soup or bananas. (3) CALCIUM builds strong bones and get more of that with plain yogurt, tofu, bok choy(type of cabbage), and calcium-fortified orange juice. (4) VITAMIN A helps your eyes, skin, gums and teeth stay healthy as well as boost your immune system. Sweet potatoes are great, carrots with hummus, cantaloupe, and apricots. And finally (5) MAGNESIUM which can be found in Brazil nuts, okra, brown rice or almonds.
Now that I’ve covered the “critical five”, I’m determined to make 2012 a healthier year for me. Yum!
