Sources of Vitamin A

Updated on January 11, 2020

Vitamin A

Are you getting enough vitamin A from natural sources? Most people know that Vitamin A is necessary for their vision. Carrots probably come to mind as a good source of Vitamin A. Luckily there are many great sources of Vitamin A (including carrots!).

Many foods contain Vitamin A, but there are some that contain over 100% of the recommended daily value in just one serving! Try incorporating the following foods into your diet to up your Vitamin A intake!

Contain Over 100% in One Serving:

2 cups Romaine Lettuce

1 cup Cooked Kale

1 cup Cooked Spinach

1 cup Cooked Mustard Greens

1 cup Carrots

1 cup Cooked Turnip Greens

1 cup Cooked Collard Greens

1 cup Cooked Swiss Chard

1 cup Baked Sweet Potato

1 cup Baked Winter Squash

1 cup Cantaloupe

More Vitamin A!

Calf Liver has more than enough Vitamin A in 4 oz for your daily needs; however, I haven't come across very many people who like it!

Did You Know? Bell Peppers, Tomatoes, Apricots, Asparagus, Grapefruit, Celery, Papaya, Leeks, Green Beans, Watermelon, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Summer Squash, Green Peas, Plums, and Oranges are also great sources of Vitamin A!

Also try adding parsley, cayenne pepper, chili pepper, peppermint, or basil to dishes to enhance flavor and add Vitamin A!

Sweet Cookin'

Start incorporating more sweet potatoes into your diet. Yum!!

Blend it up!

I bought this blender almost 3 years ago. Although it was expensive it was worth every penny. I can make amazing smoothies and add whatever fruit and vegetables I want. My vitamin packed smoothies taste great and the texture is incredibly smooth!
