My skin is starting to take on that sickly glow of mid-Autumn. The sun has taken back its kisses, and I am left with a greener shade of pale.

As we pine after the healthy look of summer skin and search for the perfect bronzer to compensate, we should also be searching for foods high in vitamin D. The weaker intensity of its rays and the earlier setting of the sun, combined with less time spent outdoors puts us at risk for vitamin D deficiency. Long known to be essential for our body's ability to absorb calcium, more recent studies have revealed the importance of this vitamin for the immune system, cardiovascular health, cancer prevention and for warding off depression.

Check out the slideshow above to discover what foods you should eat to prevent vitamin D deficiency.
