Surprisingly Calcium-Rich Foods That Aren’t Milk.

“The recommended daily intake of calcium for an adult between the ages of 19 and 50 is 1,000 mg a day. (Adolescents, the elderly and pregnant women need varying amounts — check out the full guidelines here)…. But whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free or just don’t like the taste of milk, the truth is that it isn’t the only way to work toward your 1,000-a-day…. Which non-milk option is your favorite way to make sure you get enough calcium?” (slideshow)

From Gabriel Sanders: Finding this great article was perfect timing, as I just had a conversation yesterday with a student of a yoga class I taught.  This person was prescribed to take Tums every day to build up the intake of calcium (and to assist in a digestive issue).  Laura Schocker‘s advice is for all those who need to up their intake the natural way,  who do not like to take supplements, while being on the path of a healthy diet.

I had related to the Tums story because of those times when I had donated platelets, I would eat a handful of Tums prior and during the process to build up my calcium.  (My girlfriend, Carey Yaruss, and I donate whole blood ritually every 8 weeks followed by a burger).
