Aloha... I enjoy scrambled eggs with diced sweet onions, fresh herbs and cheddar cheese. I also whip up some egg whites for my fur buddy, Rocky. It's a great way to start the day.

And eating eggs sideways, I can't locate the edit button, is even more beneficial. ; >

So, I just noticed this contest yesterday! To bad, it would have been fun to do some of the others. This is sort of a standard weekend breakfast we have before heading out for yard work. Usually I mix everything together, but it is more attractive if there is some separation.

 

I didn't know that this was a source of D, glad to learn it. The hash is kale, mushroom, onion, sweet peppers, and sausage seasoned with some smoked harissa seasoning from a local market. The eggs are seasoned with Penzey's Northwoods. The little tart cherries are from our tree, but it is getting past their time. However, the blueberries are at their peak right now. And the cottage cheese has chives and dill.

I didn't realize that a lot of the foods and drinks my family and I are eating do not have Vitamin D. I do always add cheese to our fruit snacks to add protein. Cheese is a great source of Vitamin D which I have learned from researching. I am for sure going to incorporate more foods into our diets with this essential vitamin!!

I have many food sensitivities so making sure I get enough vitamin D in my diet is a challenge.  I try to add a bit of cheese or sour cream when I can as eggs and fish are not an option for me.  I also make sure to get some sunshine as I respond well to getting my D in that form.  Please remember that Vitamin D is a steroid hormone and not a true vitamin!La Burrita 2.jpg

I spend a lot of time outdoors, so I was shocked when my doctor told me my lab results showed that my Vitamin D level was very low. After taking 2,000 mg of Vit. D tablets for 2 weeks, bringing my level back to normal, I decided to research foods that are rich in this important vitamin. I was happy to see that foods that I love: mushrooms, salmon, tuna, avocado, and eggs were included in that list. I still have to take a supplement, but now it's only 500 mg a day.

I love boiled eggs and whole milk, which are loaded with Vitamin D.  Combine they with a walk in the sunshine and it makes for a healthier lifestyle.IMG_0044.JPG

Salmon is my go-to-easy-to-fix meal. Here, I have it along with some long grain and wild rice, and my standard veggie mix. I always have a glass of skim milk for dinner, also.

On their last evening here, my son, grandson and I had ham steaks for dinner with a sauce made with orange juice. We had vitamin-D fortified yogurt with fruit and granola for dessert.
