Now I am not saying you can eat the whole recipe at one sitting, but this is still a much healthier version than available in the stores.

I saw this article in the July issue of Cooking Light magazine and I thought it was great information to share. Vitamins come in two forms: fat-soluble, with includes vitamins A, D, E, and K; and water-soluble, such as vitamin C and B vitamins (like thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, and folate).
