Rosemary-Almond Crusted Salmon and getting vitamin D

In one month I am turning 35.

During the past few years, my husband and I have become more health conscious.   Instead of just eating  foods that are ” low calorie” or ” low fat” we actually like to think of food as a way to obtain nutrients.  Ten years ago, the two of us would have considered a “treat” to be delivery pizza or hamburgers and fries.   Now, that my husband and I are well into our thirties, we consider kale Caesar salads, fancy nut butters and mouthwatering baked salmon to be ” indulgences”.

I have a few rules when making salmon at home

  1. Spending a few extra dollars on wild-caught is well worth it.
  2. Don’t overcook it!
  3. keep the flavors simple, and enjoy the taste of the fish!
  4. Enjoy every bite!  because seriously, a really good piece of fish is not cheap. 

Wild-caught salmon is an excellent source of vitamin D.  If you’re like me, this dinner is excellent to have once in a while, but when t comes to feeding my hungry family of five, I cannot spare this kind of expense all the time. 

When we want to make sure we are getting enough vitaman D, even on nights when we’re not feasting on salmon.  Nature Made® Vitamin D is a fantastic way to fill that void.

I picked up some Nature Made® vitaman D at Walmart last week, when I was shopping for Thanksgiving.  I was able to pick some up in the vitamin aisle.

Nature Made® offers several levels of Vitamin D at Walmart, including Nature Made® Vitamin D3 2000IU Tablet and Nature Made® Vitamin D3 5000IU Softgel. The 5000IU high dose product is intended for those deficient in Vitamin D as determined and recommended by their physician.
