ECO Lunchbox Three-in-One #45

Spinach/strawberry/almond salad with homemade balsamic vinaigrette (would have been better with blue cheese or feta or something but I didn't have that), cream cheese topped with capers and red onion, smoked salmon, and a mini toasted bagel.

I was recently diagnosed with a Vitamin D deficiency. Rephrase that: a severe Vitamin D deficiency. This is is what comes of northern living, I suppose. I have been reading about dietary sources of Vitamin D lately. A weekly serving of oily fish (like salmon or tuna) is recommended. (Don't worry; I'm also taking supplements and trying to get more sun.) So I bought the smoked salmon, even though it is pricey. I sort of love the stuff, and I don't want soft bones.

  1. It's not only a north thing. I live near Phoenix and I have a severe vitamin d deficiency, too. For you, it's the lack of sun and for us, it's hiding from the sun. Hahaha. I take a supplement...when I remember.
