It seems like everyone has been talking about the importance of vitamins recently, or maybe it’s just me. At any rate, every time I go to the grocery store and stand in the vitamin aisle, I’m overwhelmed with choices. I stand there for way too long, not knowing what vitamins I really need, or what they’ll do for my body. Usually, I end up leaving with some sort of multivitamin.
I do know that vitamins in pill form are not the best solution. As with most nutrients, it’s better if you get them directly from the foods you eat. But now how am I supposed to know which foods have which vitamins? Thankfully, the Internet answered. This handy dandy infographic shows what these vitamins do, which foods they are in, and even shows you what food group they belong to. (Refer to the color key at the bottom.)
So, if you’re like me and you’re trying to get healthier one step at a time, this might be a good place to begin. I’m going to start with some B vitamins for energy so I can tackle all this school work I need to get done. Baby steps.
