We posted about the updated 2010 U.S. Dietary Guidelines earlier this year. You can read about that HERE. The Advisory Committee singled out 7 nutrients that many Americans are not consuming in adequate amounts. The seven are: Vitamin D, Folic Acid, Vitamin B-12, Iron, Calcium, Fiber & Potassium.
Fiber & Potasssium are the two of the seven listed that are not available in supplement form and therefore need to be supplied by consuming foods! Here is a list of a few foods that are rich in fiber & potassium and are great for filling in these two nutrient gaps.
- baked potato
- bok choy
