When you are trying to find foods rich in vitamin D to add to your diet, you may have a hard time. Unfortunately, there are limited foods enriched with this vitamin. Fatty fish like salmon, eggs (with the yolk), mushrooms (only when exposed to sunlight), fortified dairy and alternative milk products.
From these ingredients, you can surely mix something up when you are in need of an extra boost. From yummy breakfast scrambles to healthy dinners, here is one recipe that’s quick and an old-time favourite of many.
