To avoid this potential nutritional deficiency, the study provided specific recommendations:
- consume vitamin B12 fortified foods (fortified soy beverages, breakfast cereals)
- calcium fortified plant foods (green leafy vegetables, tofu)
- vitamin D fortified foods ( soy milk, orange juice, breakfast cereals)
- n-3 fatty acids rich foods (flaxseed, walnuts, canola oil, soy products)
My recommendation for avoiding most of these nutritional deficiencies: Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk! It's delicious.
One serving of the almond milk contains the following USDA daily recommended allowances:
50% vitamin B12
35% vitamin C
50% vitamin E
Even if you are not eating vegan or vegetarian, this appears to be a healthier version of chocolate milk--an excellent recovery drink!
