Why do we eat the foods we do? November 14, 2011

What’s your reason you eat certain foods?
survival / satisfy a craving / to lose weight / it’s good for us
Another way to look at food is to know what some foods do for you:

Vitamin A comes in two forms, carotene and retinol. Your body converts carotene to retinol.
Vitamin A helps in maintenance of the cornea, skin, bone and tooth growth
Carotene comes from: dark green and yellow vegetables such as, carrots, beans, yams and spinach,
Retinol comes from: liver, milk, cheese, eggs and fish liver oils.

Have you eaten any vitamin A lately?

Check back later for more vitamin information 🙂
