Choose these 8 Vitamin E Rich Foods

It’s no secret that one of eb5’s rockstar ingredients is Vitamin E. It’s a fat-soluble antioxidant that helps prevent oxidative stress to the body, and can protect against heart disease, cancer and damaged skin due to aging. Not only can you reach for your favorite eb5 anti-aging products for a healthy dose of this vitamin, but you can find it many foods, too.

ALMONDS

Just one ounce of almonds (about 23) offer more than 7 mg of Vitamin E. They also provide protein, fiber, calcium and potassium. So much goodness! You can also reap these benefits in almond milk and almond oil.

 

AVOCADO

The avocado has been having its 15 minutes of fame for quite a while now — and for good reason. They’re rich, creamy and delicious and just half on one can provide 2 mg of Vitamin E. Slice one up with some salt and pepper, add chunks to your salad or whip up some guacamole.

 

KALE

Kale is a superfood and just a cup of it can deliver 6% of your daily Vitamin E requirements. Try tossing together a kale-based salad, baking some kale chips or adding in a handful of the green into your smoothies.

 

PAPAYA

Papaya is one of those fruits you probably don’t pick up on your routine grocery run. However, the orange, super sweet fruit contains about 17% of your body’s daily needs of Vitamin E, and it’s a great source of Vitamin C, too! It’s perfect for citrusy, tropical smoothies.

 

SEEDS

Seeds high in Vitamin E include sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds. Just one fourth a cup of sunflower seeds will give you a whopping 90% of your recommended daily value of Vitamin E! Snack on them by themselves or toss them in your salad.

 

BROCCOLI

One cup of broccoli can provide 4% of your daily Vitamin E needs, and it’s also an excellent source of dietary fiber. Roasted broccoli is a go-to favorite of mine at dinner time.

 

OLIVES

Eating olives and consuming olive oil are both great ways to include more Vitamin E in your daily diet. One cup of olives will give you about 20% of the Vitamin E you need per day. Olives are another snack that can stand alone or be tasty in a salad, as well.

 

SPINACH

This leafy green is high in Vitamin E and just a cup will give you about 20% of your daily needs of the vitamin. It’s so versatile — make a salad, include it on your sandwiches, sautee it with other veggies or toss it in a smoothie.
