10 Best Vitamin Rich Foods

Eating healthy can be confusing, time consuming and often costly. In an attempt to simplify the task of shopping, preparing and eating healthy, vitamin rich foods I have prepared a top ten list of items to include on every trip to the local grochery store.
1. Organic Sweet Potatoes- rich in carotenoids, vitamin C, potassium and fiber.
2. Tomotoes- rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, fiber and lycopene
3. Milk- Rice/Soy...rich in calcium, vitamin D and protein. Women in their 20s/30s beware of Soy with the additional hormones. Choose Rice milk instead.
4. Deep Green Veggies- Rich in vitamin C, carotenoids, calcium, folic acid and fiber.
5. Wild Salmon-Chuck full of Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Excellent grilled with a lemon/rosemary vinaigette dressing.
6. Brown Rice- high in fiber, vitamin E, B6, copper, zinc and phytochemicals
7. Citrus Fruit- packed with vitamin C, folic acid and fiber.
8. Butternut Squash- a half cup yields 5grams of fiber, vitamin A and C.
9. Green Tea- Rich with antioxidents and catechins polyphenols. Green tea lowers cholesterol.
10. Acai Juice- high content of vitamins B1, B2, B3, C, and E along with iron, phosphorous, calcium and potassium...it's a worthy addition to your cart.
