Tip #14: Got Calcium?

09 Jun

Most people know that milk and other dairy products are a good source of calcium. However, eating too much dairy can cause bad health effects including weight gain. While milk in your cereal is a good way to start your morning or perhaps cheese on your sandwich for lunch, try getting your calcium from healthier sources.

  • Vegetables and greens: Many vegetables, especially leafy green ones, are great sources of calcium. You may consider trying turnip greens, mustard greens, collard greens, kale, romaine lettuce, celery, broccoli, fennel, cabbage, summer squash, green beans, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, and crimini mushrooms.
  • Beans: For another rich source of calcium, eat black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, white beans, black-eyed peas, or baked beans.
