Did you know…?

One important vitamin that we need is Vitamin D.

We do not have to run to the drugstore for synthetic versions. We can get it free from our food, and from sunlight.

By exposing our face, hands and forearms, feet to the sunlight 15-30 minutes (some need 45 minutes to an hour—the darker the skin, the more sunlight we need) each day throughout the Summer, and by daily assimilating vitamin D rich foods, herbs; we will have adequate Vitamin D throughout the year.

In the winter, I would only expose my face to the sunlight, and depending on the temperature, my hands. In the winter, some may need more than 15-30 minutes.

A few Vitamin D rich plants that absorb the sunlight daily are:




Greens period

Yes, we can absorb vitamin D from plants that we eat. The key is to eat a variety of “whole food” plant base meals each day of the week. Do not eat the same foods each day. Make sure to assimilate sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds sesame seeds, a variety of greens in our salads, and steamed also.

One of the many pestos we can make is spinach (or mix two or three types of greens together- start with about two cups, then add more in the processor to your taste after you process all ingredients), walnuts (start with a handful, then add to taste), garlic cloves (start with 1 and add more to taste), Himalayan salt (start with 1/4 tsp then add to taste), lemon juice (start with 1/2 tbsp then add to taste), sweet basil (add to taste). Whatever herbs you want to use. I have used cilantro or a mixture of herbs like oregano, sweet basil, or thyme, marjoram, rosemary.

You can make this into a sandwich spread too. You may use almonds and seeds instead of walnuts. Be creative.

The key is to surrender the preparation of your meal to God, and talk to Him as you are in the kitchen preparing. He will speak to you (in our mind in a still small voice, or an impression). Just be mindful to listen.
