Little Cans of Sunshine

January 09, 2018

Sardines

As darkness descends early on brief winter’s days, and bomb cyclones bring blizzard conditions, we may not feel the sun’s fortifying rays for weeks at a time. These bleak sunless stretches can lead to much introspection and reconsideration of why we live at such latitudes, along with deficient exposure to vitamin D.

The sunshine vitamin is crucial for bone strength, as it allows the body to absorb calcium from food, lessening the likelihood of fractures and osteoporosis. The days may not be bright, but we do not have to go without: sardines in olive oil can help supply this vital vitamin throughout the season, like little cans of sunshine.
