Fast Food and Vitamins - Take Up Some Healthy Habits
by Bob Benson
Think the only healthy food is food that’s served on a plate that you eat with a fork?
The truth is that many foods that are very rich in vitamins that your body needs
everyday are available for your consumption on the go. And with some minor
changes, even your fast foods can be healthy choices when you’re considering
vitamins.

A cheeseburger from your favorite fast food place doesn’t have to be something you
only indulge in now and then. While there are some other issues to consider (the
amount of grease and salt, for example), a cheeseburger can provide you with many
of the vitamins you need. A regular cheeseburger with a double patty gives you about
30 percent of your body’s B12 needs for the day and the dill pickles are a source of
Vitamin K.

Instead of ordering French Fries to go with your burger, choose a salad. That doesn’t
mean that you have to stop what you’re doing and sit down to eat the salad. Pile
those veggies on the burger! The tomatoes are a source of Vitamin C, and the
lettuce and mayonnaise has Vitamin K. Add it all up and a cheeseburger isn’t a bad
choice when you’re trying to get the daily requirement of some necessary vitamins.
Even a fast food taco can be a good source of Vitamin B12.

Sandwiches are generally not associated with healthy eating, but the same
“cheeseburger rule” applies to any sandwich. Pile on the jalapeno or bell peppers for
Vitamin C. Oils are also a good source of vitamins. Sunflower oil is very high in
Vitamin E, for example.

Many foods that aren’t naturally high in vitamin content are fortified with vitamins.
Most dairy products are fortified with Vitamin D. Taking just the time for a bowl of
vitamin-fortified cereal in the morning can provide you with all the vitamins you need
for the entire day. The next time you’re ready to dismiss a particular food as just
empty calories, take a minute to evaluate what you’re really eating. You may be
surprised to find the vitamin content is higher than you thought, or you may find that
some simple changes can rectify the vitamin-poor choices.

If you ask most adults why they
don’t get the vitamins they need
as part of their daily food intake,
they’ll likely tell you that they just
don’t have the time to eat like
they should. It’s true that eating
right does take some time and
effort, but it’s also true that you
can develop and maintain
healthier eating habits without
any drastic changes. Take a look
at some facts and some
alterations that can make a big
difference in how you eat, and
how you feel about what you eat.
