One would have to eat a whole container of 10 oz spinach, have to eat nuts and vegetable oils, and eat massive amount of other types of foods to get the daily mg of Vitamin E? Is it just me that's having a tough time with this?

Red Palm oil is high in Vitamin E. Papaya provides 11 % of daily Vitamin E. Paprika is another source. Pickles green olives is a source of Vitamin E which can be used with salads

My guess would be that RDA for vitamin E assumes that the diet is high in polyunsaturated fats and thus the level is higher than it needs to be. A diet low in polyunsaturated fats wouldn't require the same level of vitamin E.
