With all the food we eat, you'd think we'd be getting all the nutrients we need. Not so, according to the latest National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), which assesses the health and nutrition status of the U.S. population. The survey reveals that nearly 10% of Americans have nutritional deficiencies. "The recommended daily values for vitamins are difficult to conceptualize when we're shopping for food and planning meals," says Carolyn Brown, MS, RD, a dietitian in New York Ci

10 Dairy-Free Foods Packed With Calcium

10 Dairy-Free Foods Packed With Calcium | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it
Contrary to popular belief, you do not need milk to obtain calcium. Check out these dairy-free foods that are packed with calcium.

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, May 27, 11:57 AM

Did you know that plant based foods are rich sources of calcium? If you're having stomach problems consuming dairy or don't want to eat it, try plant based foods for all your calcium needs. Your body requires calcium, one of the essential electrolytes, for strong bones and teeth. With calcium, you also need to take vitamin D, K, foods rich in boron, and magnesium.

 

Health tips:  Chia and hemp seeds are excellent sources of calcium. both are also great sources of omega 3s and are  complete proteins. Chia contains more calcium than salmon. Both seeds can be used puddings, desserts, salads and hemp makes a delicious dairy free milk. Sesame seeds are also rich sources of calcium.  Sesame seeds are the main ingredient in Tahini, a dairy free butter and can be used in salads, hummus, desserts. Dark leafy greens are another rich source of plant based calcium. Watercress also has more calcium than salmon. Fruits as in figs, black currants, and oranges are very good ounces of calcium. Six dried figs contain the highest amount of plant based calcium.  Blackstrap molasses, a nutritious sweetener is a good source of calcium. Almonds and almond butter (pictured), and almond milk (homemade) are another great source of calcium.  There are so many nut milk varieties to choose from today like coconut milk, pecan milk, pistachio milk, oat milk, and many others. Beans as in white, pinto, and navy are good sources of calcium. Veggies as in fennel, broccoli, and artichoke are good sources of calcium. And amaranth (fave) seed grain is loaded with calcium. Most of  these plant based sources are also rich in other minerals and vitamins.

 

Here's an excellent information packed article on "10 Dairy-Free Foods Packed with Calcium" from Onegreenplanet.org  with recipes.by Lindsey Little.

With 1 in 5 Americans taking a psychiatric medication, most of whom, long term, we should probably start to learn a bit more about them. In fact, it would have been in the service of true informed consent to have investigated long-term risks before the deluge of these meds seized our population over the past thirty years.
