“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.”
With all of this dreary weather and snow, it’s been hard to get out in the sunshine lately, or at least it has been for me.
Did you ever notice in the colder, winter months your energy has been lacking? Possibly suffering from the blues?
Vitamin D, which comes naturally from the sun, helps to keep our mood pleasant, hormones in check, and regulate our calcium intake. But what happens when we cannot acquire the sunshine?
Don’t worry, you can also acquire this awesome vitamin through the foods that you eat.
Which foods you ask? Well, let me break them down for you…
So when you’re feeling blue, or have that “summertime sadness”, and can’t reach the sunshine try these foods to help give you that little extra boost.
