When I run 100g through cronometer, I'm looking at 96% RDA. 100g is a little heavy on the evoo for me (though, I probably do hit that some days), where I'm probably closer to 60-70g for around 60% RDA. Throw an avocado on top of a couple bowls of salad and cook up some salmon with a grip of asparagus (in red palm oil for bonus pts) and you're up over 100% for both vitamin E and selenium by the end of breakfast. Lately I've been doing salads with extra virgin avocado oil.

1 pound of broccoli = 24% DV Vitamin E. Now I love broccoli myself (and will eat a pound in a sitting), but that's probably more than most will eat.

1 tbsp butter = 2% DV Vitamin E. If you've got room in your calorie budget for 6 sticks of butter, maybe.

Not going to even touch 'cereal.'

One of the best sources of vitamin E is red palm oil (palm kernel oil ISN'T the same thing). It has a form of vitamin E (tocotrienols) that aren't present in many other foods high in vitamin E.

Make sure to buy it from Nutiva where the oil is sourced from South America. Lots of palm oil is sourced from Indonesia and causes tons of deforestation.

I really love the Crown Prince naturally smoked oysters and smoked clams, (high in selenium, Trader Joe's has them), as a source. They are tasty eaten right from the tin, cooked with eggs or in main dishes. They are also super easy to pack for lunch because they don't need refrigeration.

I've had quizzical looks from baggage checkers opening my luggage and finding multiple cans of smoked oysters and clams. Hey, don't ever want to be caught without paleo options while traveling!

If you eat "safe starches" a la The Perfect Health Diet, or resistant starches, here is an easy smoked oyster casserole recipe.
