Looking to get more Vitamin D into your diet? It turns out Vitamin D–which helps create strong bones, boosts our immune systems, and helps ward off cancer, autoimmune diseases, and hypertension–is created by mushrooms (even picked or dried ones) that have been exposed to sunlight. Place your mushrooms gills up in the sun for six hours, and they’ll provide you with a megadose of this crucial vitamin.

For more nutrition surprises, visit Dr. Andrew Weil’s site, where, in addition to offering this mushroom advice, he extols the virtues of orange tomatoes, crushed garlic, and more.
