Dairy, dairy everywhere!
The hype with documentaries like Forks over Knives and the dairy free movement (which I'm a big fan of) leaves a lot of you looking for alternative ways to get that 1000mg of calcium daily.
Below are some dairy free options:
Almond milk contains about 45% of your daily calcium needs in 1 cup and only 95 calories.
Tofu contains over 40% of your daily calcium needs in just half a cup. Not bad for 95 calories.
Okra contains 12% of your daily calcium needs in just in 1 cup cooked 35 calories.
Collard greens contains 27% of your daily calcium needs in just 1 cup cooked at 65 calories.
Spinach contains 25% of your daily calcium needs in just 1 a cup cooked at 41 calories.
Flax milk contains 30% of your daily calcium needs in just 1 cup at 25 calories if you get the unsweetened kind.
