Well, I have been strugglling with eating right since I was a teenager. My mother was very health concious and lived a very healthy life. In doing the nutritional breakdown for a month, I thought it doesn't matter, after all I'm taking a vitamin. It will cover everything. Well last night I decided to enter my vitamin like a food in my Nutrition area. And much to my surprise, it didn't cover everything that I need.
Then I looked at my food analysis for the day and I was short on Magnesium and Potassium.
I need these to help combat high blood pressure. And maybe this is part of the reason I have high blood pressure. So as course follows...I look up all the foods rich in these two.
It is amazing how much I have learned from Spark People. I am going to be a devote Sparkie for a long time. Can't wait to see what I am going to learn tomorrow.
