Getting Vitamin D in the Winter

We all know that we need vitamin D to keep bones strong. We also know that the best source of vitamin D is the sun, so what do we do in the winter when the sun is scarce?

While vitamin D is present in very few foods naturally, it is added to others. Here are some of the foods you should be eating in the winter to help get the proper amount of vitamin D:

  • Fatty fish

Salmon, tuna, and mackerel are good options.  You can also take fish oil or cod liver oil.

  • Fortified milk

Milk products, including soy milk are fortified with vitamin D to help with calcium absorption. Pair the fortified milk with fortified cereal for a boost.

  • Mushrooms

Not all mushrooms are created equal! Shitake mushrooms have more vitamin D than white mushrooms. You can also place your mushrooms in the sun to boost levels of vitamin D!

  • Oysters

Half a dozen oysters have 60% f your daily vitamin D need!

  • Shrimp

6 ounces of shrimp has 64% of your vitamin D need, and there are endless ways to enjoy shrimp!

  • Eggs

One large egg has 4% of your daily need, but you need to include the yolk.

There are also vitamin D supplements widely available. Make sure to consult with your doctor is see if you are getting the proper amount of vitamin D.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
