Good sources of biotin, folate, & copper? (read on)?

I'm dieting around 1,200-1,300 calories a day but i wanna make sure i'm getting most of my body's daily vitamin needs and not lacking any important ones.
Heres what my multivitamin already provides:
100% or over In:
Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B:6, Vitamin B:12, Pantothenic acid, Iodine, Zinc, Selenium

Vitamins that my multi doesn't provide a full ammount of:
Iron-50%
Magnesium-13%
Copper-50%
Manganese-50%
Chrormium-85%
Potassium-0%
Biotin-33%
Folic Acid (Folate)-50%

Could you please list foods rich in the vitamins i listed and i know whole grains/egg yolks are a good source of biotin but is it covering the full ammount i need a day?

i'm trying to eat stuff low in bad fats/sugars etc while trying to get a good ammount of protien/carbs off of the calories i do get, but i dont want to be lacking vitamins because i know its hard to get them all while eating 1200 calories a day.

any help/tips would be good........thanks

Answer on Good sources of biotin, folate, & copper? (read on)?

A low calorie diet is a diet deficient in protein because protein is converted into a very inefficient fuel & not allowing dietary protein to do it's function in cellular regeneration & repairs. With no bioavailable dietary protein, the body is forced to catabolize it's own lean tissues.

Fats are essential to good health. The body needs fat to make vitamins & minerals in foods bioavailable so they can be incorporated into the body structure.

Lacking synthetic vitamins are the least of your worries.

I don't think I'm like a fun friend...?

K my best friend and I have been best friends for about a year.
A little over a year ago, like, a year and 2 months, she moved here from California.
On her Myspace she has pictures with her 3 best friends from California, and they had like super fun times together
and she tells stories about things they did.
I've met them all, and they're super cool. But I just think that like I'm not fun...

After school we go to our recreational center and we sit there and talk
Then when her sister's school gets out, she and her friends come
When they come, we both laugh a ton more and stuff.

So, I just feel like I'm not a fun friend, and it seems as though she doesn't like want to lose me, so I'm there to talk to, but she wants someone more fun, exciting, and like spur of the moment crazy fun ideas

Answer on I don't think I'm like a fun friend...?

There's friends who we lean on, then there are friends we do stuff with. She runs with the fun pack for fun but considers you're friendship valuable as you have been someone she can open up to but may not wanna be seen out and about with you like the others.
