Inspired by Lorraine I made preserved lemon egg salad. This is a bit of an exotic twist on the classic. Eggs are a great addition to your diet as they contain Vitamin D, B6 and B12 as well as copper, iron, selenium and zinc.
It feels like an age ago that I blogged about my vitamin regime. The last thing I added back was my multivitamin. I have done some research into what I should be taking and I am sort of doing OK. For a woman of my age I should supplement with Vitamins A, C, D, E and K as well as B6 and B12. I should also be taking Thiamin, Riboflavin, Folate, Niacin, Choline, Pantothenic Acid and Biotin. As far as minerals are concerned, the list is just as long. I should be taking Calcium, Chloride, Chromium, Copper, Fluoride, Iodine, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Phosphorus, Potassium, Selenium, Sodium and Zinc. My current supplement does not contain two of the vitamins, and six of the minerals. It does however contain Inositol and Nicotinamide which are not on my list.

As I take Chromium as a separate supplement I am not sure it is worth looking for a new multivitamin. It would entail a lot of list checking for sure if I were to change. And the tablet I currently take works for me. It does what I need it to do. However, nothing so far has fixed my finger. The pain is there, under the surface. And only bothers me when I tweak it doing something like tying my shoelaces. Hopefully with time it will get better as I am not sure what else to do. Do you have any suggestions?
