Top 10 Foods highest in Vitamin D

I’m now 31 weeks pregnant and still have very low levels of vitamin D in my body. I have doubled my dose of supplements but thought it might help to investigate what other foods I could eat more of  to boost my levels. The link below has the top 10 foods highest in vitamin D. Perhaps some of you are in the same situation?

  • Cod liver oil
  • Fish
  • Fortified cereals
  • Oysters
  • Caviar
  • Fortified Soy Products
  • Salami, Ham, and Sausages
  • Fortified Dairy Products
  • Eggs
  • Mushrooms

unfortunately some are not suitable for pregnant women.  Guess I will just bulk up on the dairy, soy and eggs!

Did you know?: Health Benefits of Pineapple!

How much do you know about Pineapple?

An article in the January edition of Health works opened my eyes to what an amazing fruit pineapple is with all of its health benefits. The 3 main benefits outlined in the article were;

  • The fruit contains tryptophan which triggers the release of serotonin.
  • Contains Bromelain, an enzyme with digestive and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Packed with vitamins and 16 minerals.

Pineapples are generally available all year round with the best value being from November to February. Pineapple recipes can be found at the below link from Australian Pineapples.

Chicken with creamy tomato and Italian herb pasta – by Philadelphia

Philadelphia has released a series of recipes through their website using their new range of cream cheeses. I decided to give this recipe below a go, my family and I found it delicious. The only thing I did differently was add a spanish onion to the dish with the capsicum. It was very quick and an easy, will definitely look at some of their other recipes!
