Fill in the Nutrient Gaps!

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
  • apricots
  • peaches
  • broccoli
  • bok choy
