Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and teeth. Known as the sunshine vitamin, we get most of what we need from the action of sunlight on our skin. But did you know that between October and March the sun’s rays in the UK are too weak to make the vitamin efficiently? The body relies on its stores, but as the winter comes to an end, supplies can be getting low. Top yourself up by eating Vitamin D rich foods

Eggs are a great source, as are oily fish such as salmon and mackerel. Check out this Smoked Salmon & Pea Frittata recipe from bbcgoodfood.com – sunshine on a plate  


500g new potatoes

200g smoked salmon

8 large eggs

tbsp chopped dill

100g frozen petits pois  


Thickly slice the potatoes and cook in a pan of boiling salted water until just tender, about 10 minutes. Drain well and leave to cool slightly. Cut the salmon into wide strips. Crack the eggs into a bowl, beat with a fork until lightly foamy, then stir in the smoked salmon, dill, peas and plenty of salt and pepper. Finally, stir in the potatoes. Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan, carefully pour in the egg mixture and cook over a fairly low heat for 10-15 minutes, until the egg is starting to set just under the surface. Put a plate that is slightly larger than the top of the pan on top and invert the frittata onto it. Slide it back into the pan and cook for a further 5 minutes to brown the underside. Slide on to a plate and leave to cool for 5 minutes before cutting into wedges.
