When I recommend that patients avoid cow’s dairy in their diet, one of the most common questions I get asked is “how will I get my calcium?”

The most bioavailable, how much our body absorbs of that nutrient, forms of calcium are from food sources not cow’s dairy.

Here FIVE calcium-rich foods that are non-dairy and non-fortified sources:

  1. Green Leafy Vegetables such as spinach, kale, collard greens
  2. Broccoli
  3. Kelp
  4. Navy Beans
  5. Almonds
