11 Places to Find the Calcium You’re Probably Lacking
Other places to get your calcium fix include white beans and black-eyed peas (yes, they’re a legume). Again, they can be cooked a variety of ways to suit your needs and tastebuds. Soy beans and soy milk work too. If you like milk but can’t have it, soy milk is your new best friend!
5. Leafy Greens
The list of green leafy things that have lots of calcium is pretty much endless: dandelion greens, mustard greens, turnip greens, kale, watercress, bok choy, spinach, arugula…
6. Other Vegetables
Cabbage, broccoli, and asparagus are all vegetables that fall into the same calcium-rich category but aren’t as leafy-green as their cousins on the previous page. The takeaway here is that if there’s a vegetable you like, do some research on it. Odds are, it’s probably a decent source of calcium.
Seafood is also a great source of various nutrients. Salmon, sardines, and herring top our list. Any canned fish will contain softened pieces of bone, therefore providing plenty of calcium. Quick, simple, and good for you.
