First off, as I am quite aware, there are some people who might dislike that I'm pescetarian, meaning I don't eat any meat other than fish. But please, avoid preaching to me about the benefits of eating other meats, as I know what they are and I am not against the consumption of them whatsoever.
But given that I don't eat those, I'm wondering what sorts of supplements would be worth investing in? I live in Alaska, so vitamin D is prescribed to about 99 percent of the population... Other than that though, I'm not sure.
This is a run-down of the foods I've got stocked up now (so you know what my meals already include)...:
Almonds, pecans, walnuts
Organic, free roaming eggs (and when I can, I get locally laid)
Spinach, kale, sweet potatoes, green beans, zucchini, avocado, onions, garlic, tri colored peppers
EVOO, Coconut oil, clarified butter
Wild caught cod, Wild caught Alaska salmon(soooo good!), and wild caught bay scallops
Blueberries, strawberries, a coconut, lemons, and apples (all organic)
Err, also, any foods I should include in my next grocery list would be helpful :) I want to avoid having to supplement with pills as much as possible, so I'm trying to get a wide variety of foods. Thanks much :D

I would add shiitake to your grocery list.
You should supplement B12 (as methylcobamalmin) and K2. I would also say C since iron is mostly found in meats and C boosts absorption which women of your age need badly.
Other then that, you can think about mitochondrial support - Q10 particularly - especially given the high thermogenic profile you must have there.

I think you can get most of what you need from food and what you eat looks amazing to me.
A couple of refs:
Pretty much in line with Majkinetor. I doubt you need extra fish oil - haha! One thing you might consider is magnesium - it's important along with K & D to transport calcium into bone tissue. You might be getting enough from your food or you might not - you might want to plug in some sample days into FitDay or a similar nutrient calculator to see where you could be low.
