I'm finally not concerned about which foods I should eat, so now I get to worry about things like vitamins and minerals! I don't take any supplements in addition to my food and I'm not showing any signs of deficiencies, but I'd like to clear some stuff up so that in a few years I don't develop a deficiency.
Here are the following areas I'm lacking in, and by how much:
- Folate: 160.9ug (40%)
- B1(Thiamine): 0.7mg (57%)
- Vitamin E: 3.4mg (22%)
- Magnesium: 198.6mg (48%)
- Manganese: .5mg (25%)
This is approximate; some days it's higher, some days it's lower.
Question: Will I develop a deficiency if I carry on like this? If so, I've been looking into organ meats and bone broths. Would 1oz of liver and 1-2 cups of bone broth per day cover that(I'm thinking about making the broth in a slow cooker for 48 hours with 1 pound of beef marrow bones and making enough to last me for 1-2 weeks)? I don't really want to take any supplements because I feel like my diet isn't that healthy if it's not nourishing me. Unless they start to make liver flavored VitaCraves. :P
