milk_34420867When we hear the word calcium we immediately think of milk, when in reality there are countless alternatives for calcium. Many people are lactose intolerant and don’t even know it, so it’s important to have a good effective replacement.

Figs

Figs are an excellent source of calcium and a delicious snack you could enjoy in the morning or in between meals. With about 35 mg of calcium per 100 g,  figs can be a great way to get your calcium intake.

Spinach

Spinach and other dark leafy greens are packed with essential vitamins and minerals. Calcium is not excluded here. There is about 100 mg of calcium per serving of spinach. This is a great healthy alternative for calcium.

Seeds

Seed are one of the highest sources of calcium available! Believe it or not but 100g seeds have about 4 times the amount of calcium as 1 glass of milk has. This is an incredible replacement for dairy and provides around 631 mg of calcium!

Almonds

Almonds are an excellent source of calcium. With about 264 mg of calcium almonds are a far more superior supplement for calcium than milk is.

Kale

Yes, we’ve all been hearing about Kale recently, and for good reason. This delicious dark leafy vegetable is super high in calcium and other excellent vitamins and minerals. Kale clocking in about 150 mg of calcium per 100 g, puts its calcium ranking higher than milk!

So there are many great alternatives for calcium rather than milk, I hope this list helps you!!
