You've likely heard that Vitamin D is good for you, and that you can get this "sunshine vitamin" from exposure to sunlight. But here's one thing most people don't know about Vitamin D—they don't get enough of it. In fact, over 75 percent of Americans don't get enough daily Vitamin D. And if you live in the cloudy Pacific Northwest, there's a good chance that number is higher.
Now for some good news: Milk is a delicious source of Vitamin D! Concerned you're not getting enough Vitamin D from sunlight alone? Drink milk. It's like sunshine in a glass.
