As more time is spent indoors in the middle of winter, thoughts revolve around the best ways to increase the levels of vitamin D in our diet. Many foods such as salmon, eggs (egg yolks), kale, okra and mushrooms provide natural sources of vitamin D. Salmon and other oily fish like mackerel are rich sources of vitamin D. However, it’s not always easy to ensure that fish is included consistently in our diets. Let’s face it, salmon is expensive. An easy way to ensure consistent inclusion of salmon in different meals prepared during the week is to bake whole salmon fillets and then use portions of the fillet for different meals during the week. Even for breakfast. Crumble some baked salmon in your egg omelet or scrambled eggs and enjoy the benefits of vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, protein and a healthy pocketbook from the money you’ll save when you buy whole fillets instead of individual salmon steaks.
