Eat These Two Foods for More Vitamin A

January 29, 2015 6:03 pm

Vitamin A is a vital nutrient that keeps our eyesight sharp and promotes healthy cell growth. Getting enough of this antioxidant is easy if you know where to look for it. Here are two surprising sources of vitamin A for you to add to your diet if it's lacking.

  1. Dark, leafy greens. The bigger the bunch, the better! Enjoy a variety of greens in a salad or choose your favorite to add to a sandwich. Pick up kale, spinach, or Swiss chard to get more than 200 percent of your daily vitamin A needs in just one cup.
  2. Dried apricots. This sweet, bright orange fruit is a delicious way to get your vitamin A. Snack on these instead of candy in between meals. Half a cup delivers 151 percent of your daily value.
