Don’t Like Milk? Try These High-Calcium Foods Instead
A glass of milk typically has about 300 mg of calcium, or roughly 30% of the recommended daily intake. While milk is an excellent source of calcium, there are plenty of other foods that deliver just as much, if not more of this bone-healthy nutrient. It may be surprising to find out that certain fish, vegetables, and seeds are all packed with calcium!
It may come as a surprise to hear that a 3.75 ounce can of sardines has even more calcium in it than milk does! That’s largely due to the bones, which are safe to digest and packed with nutrients.
Sardines may be a little intimidating to eat, but there are plenty of recipes out there that make the look and taste milder. They can be a great addition to salads, curry, casserole, or can be grilled as an appetizer!
