Top 4 ways to Overcome Nutrition Pitfalls


You might be surprised to hear Angela talk about how Iron is the most important nutrient we are missing in our diets today.  There’s a number of different ways to supplement iron in your diets, I always look to food first (ie. organic black strap molasses, pumpkin seeds, quinoa and plenty more; and if you consume animal product a variation of meats also contain good sources of iron.


There are so many health benefits to magnesium, although you won’t find a direct correlation like for example potassium and bananas or milk and calcium.  Magnesium rich foods include leafy greens, beans, grains, fish, avocados, ect.  As you’ll hear in the interview Angela explains why magnesium is a vital nutrient in ways to overcome nutrition pitfalls.

Vitamin D:

Most closely linked to the sun, it’s difficult to get enough sun especially living in Canada or even North America which is why many of lack Vitamin D.  Some good sources of Vitamin D is actually found Butter and Cod liver oil.  If are going to use supplement looks for Vit D 3 as opposed to Vit. D 2.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids:

Omega # is an Essential Fatty Acid because the body can’t produce it which means we need help from other sources.  Some of those include cold water fish and grass fed beef.  These fatty acids works as anti inflammatory properties, that help with your joints, vision and overall feeling better.  So it would be a good idea to increase omega 3 fatty acids in your diet.


This interview was a little longer than our typical interview but there was so much good information I didn’t want to cut it off.  These top 4 Nutrients to cover come nutrition pitfalls was only half the interview.  After we get through this segment Angela goes on to cover 6 more tips on overcoming these nutrient deficiencies.
