Regardless of your age or whether you have school aged children, this time of year signifies back to school and the on-set of fall. It is peak harvest time in many areas and a perfect time to introduce you and your family to new foods and a new outlook on healthy eating. Take a trip to a farmers market or even better, head out to a u-pick farm. Make it a goal to introduce something new to your diet or make a change for the better. While the days get shorter and the sunshine less frequent, don’t forget about getting continued access to Vitamin D. Vitamin D is produced naturally by our bodies, converting cholesterol when exposed to the sun (it takes about 10 minutes of full sunlight exposure to non-sunscreen protected skin – think shorts and a tank top – to get about 10,000 IU’s). Aside from the summertime, most areas of the US do not get enough peak sun in order to properly give our bodies the necessary Vitamin D it requires. And while food (catfish, oily fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines, herring, tuna, sun-dried mushrooms – these need to be actually dried in the sun and not just dehydrated to help) can provide some of our Vitamin D needs, most people should be on a supplement throughout the non-summer months.
