Hi there,

I'm going to Florida to stay with some old fogies for a week, although I am sure they are more active and energetic than I am. I'll be staying in a town called Holiday. I kid you not.

Most of our dairy in Canada is D-free unless it is marked, and I am not sure about the USA. Is there anything special I should be on the lookout for other than the obvious (milk, eggs, seafood)?

Thanks,
Deb

Read the labels on orange juice, breakfast cereal, and bottled water.  Don't bother reading labels on any product containing a milk product ingredient in regular grocery stores, just avoid it on principle, as labeling of D is poor for milk related ingredients, like cottage cheese.  It seems that only milk is bothered to be labeled with D when fortified milk is used.  We have plenty of 'Healthfood Stores' in the US.  Go to one, and read the dairy labels.  Organic Valley, if D is NOT on the label, is good, and Straus Family Farms is good.  Brown Cow yogurt is good.  Cynthia

Thanks for the heads up Cynthia. Guess I'll be drinking tap water too. I have seen that stuff here.

I spend time in Florida each winter.
Regarding specific stores, I recommend Publix as a regular grocery store. They all seem to carry D free Organic Valley whole milk. They also carry whole milk that is D fortified, so make sure you check the label closely. The fortified milk has a big "D" on the front and has vitamin D on the ingredients list. Publix also has a modest selection of organic deli meats and cheeses and organic cereals and snack crackers which can be "safe". Again, read labels to check for added D, just as Cynthia suggests.

A great store in that part of Florida is "The Fresh Market". Check their website for all store locations. They have high quality produce and meat. Curiously, they do not carry the D-free Organic Valley milk, but have a good selection of other D-free dairy (half and half, butter, creme fraiche, cheeses)

Phil and I live and travel full time in our RV. Obtaining high quality food is important to me and is the biggest challenge I face with this lifestyle.

But it can be done!

Hi Carol, that is very handy to know. I am just going for a week, and staying with my mother. Publix is probably really convenient. I can't get D-free milk here, only goat's milk which I love but is too expensive.

I can't travel much because I have to plan everything around my transfusion schedule, so just getting away at all is something. Plus, I just barely had that much vacation time. Must be nice to be able to roam free! :D

Thanks,
Deb

If you find Organic Valley at a store, read all the labels.  I found Organic Valley at a big chain store in California, and the half gallons had vit D, and the quarts didn't.  Go figure.  Cynthia
