Everyone talks about the importance of consuming dairy products for calcium. Have you ever stopped to consider how many other foods contain high levels of calcium? Cow’s milk is not the end all and be all when it comes to calcium.
There are a number of whole food options that contain high levels of calcium along with an abundance of other essential nutrients, without the extreme acidity and nutrient stealing properties of cow’s milk.
I have put together a fun info graphic for you showing 10 whole food sources of calcium. These are all great options for a vegetarian or vegan diet.
In summary dark greens, nuts/seeds, and beans/legumes are great calcium rich sources.
Embrace variety and remember to eat your calcium!
