I can’t tell you how many times I had been to a doctor and as soon as he/she heard what my diet consisted of they jumped to suggesting I take calcium supplements. Thankfully I never listened to them, but rather I continued on with my diet and increased my intake of leafy greens. Did you know that there’s a lot more calcium in 3/4 cup of collard greens than a cup of cow’s milk? So just because I don’t drink milk doesn’t mean that I don’t have strong bones or healthy teeth.

- bok choy
- Chinese cabbage
- kale (my personal favorite)
- blackstrap molasses
