The supplement aisle shouldn't be the first place you turn for vitamin D3. It's easy to get carried away with vitamin D3 supplementation. Try these 3 sources first:

1) EGGS 🍳: Go for the whole eggs. The yolks contain a healthy dose of vitamin D3. Eggs from pastured chickens that roam outdoors on grass are especially packed with D3. 

2) FISH 🐟: Salmon, mackerel and sardines are excellent sources of vitamin D3. Choose wild caught when available for the best quality and highest nutrient intensity. 

3) SUNSHINE ☀️: 20-30 minutes of direct sunlight each day is so good for so many reasons. It's converted to vitamin D3 by your body for starters. Sunlight during the day is also key for cementing ideal sleep patterns.
