Vitamin D promotes good bone, immune system and mental health. The typical adult needs about 20 to 30 minutes of sun exposure to make enough vitamin D, but a variety of factors—working inside, weak winter sunlight, etc—can prevent that from happening. Consider supplementing your diet with these food sources to ensure you're getting enough vitamin D. http://soc.li/iVKXzpQ

Love this recipe for pickled chard stems from one of our newest guest bloggers! It's a great way to make use of food material that might otherwise go to waste, and the combination of garlic, peppercorns, mustard seeds and Sriracha sounds tasty. Recipe here: http://bit.ly/1aoF5e2  #pickling   #foodpreservation
