9. Sun-Bella Mushrooms

Mushrooms are the only plant-based food that naturally contains vitamin D. But what is now sending their "sunshine vitamin" quotient into the stratosphere is a new and unique kind of processing: Once harvested, Sun-Bella mushrooms are exposed to ultraviolet light. The net result is that a three-ounce serving of this new but widely available brand supplies 100 percent of your daily value of D. Why does this matter? Insufficient levels of D have been linked with obesity and abdominal fat, notes Dave Grotto, RD, author of 101 Optimal Life Foods.

Fungus or not - I love them :)

Unfortunately, mushrooms contain D2, which, is inconclusive at this time. D3 is what our bodies need.

I love mushrooms, fresh varieties or dried shitakes, I'm never without mushrooms.

I supplement D3 with Bio-D-Mulsion Forte. *supplies 2,000 IU per drop of vitamin D3 as a micro-emulsion for enhanced absorption and utilization.

Just eat mushrooms because I like them. I have heard some people claim fungus should not be eaten, but I can't help it sometimes.

Baby porto's on an omelet this morning. YUM!

Dr Donald Miller recommends 10,000iu D3.
