Bottle of Sunshine

As most of my friends and family have heard in the past week, I am not a fan of the autumn daylight savings time change. To me, "falling back" just means I never see the light of day. I leave for work in the dark and get home in the dark, and not to be Debbie Downer but around here it's usually raining too. Which means that many people in Seattle have a vitamin D deficiency due to lack of sun exposure. One study found that 75% of Americans are vitamin D deficient, which can lead to depression, flu, bone weakness and diabetes.

Thankfully, this deficiency is easy to combat by taking daily vitamins. I'm totally addicted to "Sunny Gummies" which are packed with 1000 IU of vit D and taste like delicious sour lemon candy. Check them out, it's an easy way to combat the winter blues. D is also found naturally in some fish, fish liver oils, egg yolks and fortified dairy and grain products.

PS. This is not a sponsored post (I wish!) just a little tip on one of my current favorite things.

    1. I bought mine at the Madison Market but I think they sell them at Whole Foods too. I eat one every morning with my snack at work. :)

    2. I bought them on Amazon. I have a hard time eating only one though...
