I understand… you are constantly bombarded by articles and ads about dietary supplements that are the ‘key’ to ‘perfect health’ and weight loss

This is NOT one of those articles. This one is all about how you can get what you need from regular, everyday, grocery store foods, as long as your diet is varied enough.

Keep these recommended foods in your kitchen. Eat them once or twice per week, and you’ll be well on your way to a healthy, nutritional and weight-loss friendly diet.

Here are the five most important nutrients potentially missing from your diet, and where to get them:

1. Vitamin A

Vitamin A supports healthy vision, new tissue growth, and a healthy immune system – these are all pretty important things if you’re looking to operate as a healthy human being. To get a decent dose of vitamin A in your diet you need to be eating yellow and orange fruits and veggies. Mangoes, carrots, yellow or orange peppers, and squash are the best candidates.
