In 2010, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) conducted a review of the dietary intake required of vitamin D and calcium and now recommends a dietary allowance of 600 IU per day of vitamin D for people between the ages of one and 70.
So now you're probably thinking, "Where can I get my hands on vitamin D?" Look no further than mushrooms! You can also get your vitamin D from the sunlight or supplements, but like people, mushrooms naturally produce vitamin D when they're exposed to the sun. Did I mention the fact that mushrooms taste great?
Now that the weather has a bit of a chill to it, why not make a warm, hearty, meat-free stew for dinner that will also give you a good dose of mushrooms! This recipe from the Food Network incorporates barley -- a whole grain that's high in fiber and antioxidants -- and veggies into the mix to make this stew filling and healthy.
