Eating Healthy: Lip-Smacking Recipes that are Packed with Vitamins D

Some of the best ways to keep a healthy diet is to pick out foods that are packed with vitamins D and cook them in several ways so it does not feel like you are eating the same thing over and over again. Therefore, you should be creative in the kitchen when using foods with vitamins D (Do you know that in Denmark, the people commonly refer to it as D vitamin fødevarer). Here are some great recipes you can try with your assortment of vitamins D rich food items.

Salmon and Caper Rounds

Salmon is a source of vitamin D and is very easy to prepare in various ways. One deliciously easy way is salmon and caper rounds. To make these, you will need the following: salmon that is packed with vitamin D, small capers, mustard, olive oil, salt and pepper and thinly sliced French toast. There is no cooking involved!

Simply chop up the vitamin D and vitamins D–packed salmon into bite sized pieces and put in a bowl. Add some small capers, drizzle with olive oil and add a dash of salt and pepper. Thinly spread mustard onto each slice of French toast then pop in the oven for five minutes. Then, top it with the salmon and caper mixture and serve.

Grilled Mushroom Sandwich

Mushrooms are packed with vitamin D, and are healthy substitutes for meat. For this, you need one large grilled mushroom, olive oil, salt and pepper, ciabatta bread, sliced tomatoes, Swiss cheese slices, mayonnaise and Japanese soy sauce. Slice the vitamin D packed mushrooms into two pieces then quickly marinate in a blend of olive oil, salt and pepper and Japanese soy sauce.

Grill both pieces in the oven and take out one the sides are a bit burnt. You can also throw in the tomatoes to grill for extra flavor. Assemble the sandwich by toasting the ciabatta bread then spreading mayonnaise on one side. Put the Swiss cheese, the tomatoes and the grilled mushrooms and cover with the other slice.

Oven-Baked Herb Shrimps

The third best food that is packed with vitamins D is shrimp. Shrimp can be cooked in different ways, but if you want the vitamins D without the fat then oven baked herb shrimps are best. You will need large shrimps, olive oil, salt and pepper, an assortment of herbs and spices (any that you like, actually) lemon wedges and a bit of low-fat butter. First, wash the shrimps and cut them up julienne-style.

Lay them out on your baking pan in a well-spaced manner. Spread a bit of butter (thinly!) over each butterfly shrimp then drizzle with olive oil. The butter adds the flavor while the abundance of olive oil keeps it from drying out. Sprinkle with your choice of spices then top with herbs like basil or cilantro. Pop it in the oven and take it out once the shrimps turn nice and red. These are all very delicious meals that are healthy and will be well-loved by the entire family!
