I just had a quick question Vitamin Water.

I don't drink it everyday, but I do at least a few times a week. The reason why I actually started buying it here on campus is that they don't have too many good drinks...mainly soda, milk and sugary juices...I tried some of the Vitamin Waters out and I liked them a lot!



What I was wondering was, if I did have one bottle of this a day, would I be in pretty good shape for key vitamins? I don't take dietary suppliments and only get 4 or 5 servings of fruit/veggies per day and was wondering how much I would benefit from:



vitamin C 50%; vitamin E 50%; vitamin B3 50%; vitamin B6 50%; folic acid 50%; vitamin B12 50%, vitamin B5 50%



which is what my favorite flavored Vitamin Water contains.



Usually my daily diet includes 2 or 3 fruits in addition to a veggie burger for lunch and dinner. I've heard a lot about not getting enough nutrients as being a vegetarian now and was also wondering if my diet seems fine. (at college it's not always easy to get the healthiest diet out there, but at least in my mind, mine seems to be at least decent, if not pretty good.)



thanks!

i'd say go for it, and if you can, try for more variety in your diet..



aim for 5 servings of fruits and veggies a day

try to eat whole grains when possible, and look into beans and nuts and seeds as additional sources of protein...



i'm a vegan on campus and my day-to-day diet varies but normally includes three fruits, seven veggies (yes, seven), 2 servings of beans, and 3-4 servings of grains. i lean more towards raw when possible...

it's hard, because the cafe selection is not great and I have no cash to go out and buy my own food.

I should check out the salad bar more often...I'm not a big fan of lettuce and I hate tomatoes, so I never had salads very much before coming to college. any ideas/suggestions? or just check it out and try some new things...
