My Top 5 Vegan Sources of Calcium

Hi Everyone!

Top 5 Monday today!!! so here I am back with another top 5 list! as a reminder those of you who are interested in a Giveaway, I am doing a Big giveaway and you can enter until October 17th, please Check out how you can enter HERE! 

why Calcium? because there is a huge misconception out there that Milk or cheese are the best source of Calcium and Vegans are going to break because they don’t get any Calcium… along with Protein and Iron that I hear about a lot… Calcium is one that I am tired of hearing…

(1/2 cup contains 120 mg) well there you go… now you have an excuse to go buy some delicious figs ( as if you needed one) not only are these a great snack and delicious!!! they contain vitamin A, E, and K…Fresh, as well as dried figs contain good levels of B-complex group of vitamins such as niacin, pyridoxine, folates, and pantothenic acid. These vitamins function as co-factors for metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.

4.  Broccoli

(1 cup contains 95 mg) I love Broccoli in my salad, especially with some lemon!!! just try it… it is so delicious and I have it all the time 🙂 this really is a health food as it is rich source of vitamin-K and B-complex group of vitamins like niacin (vit B-3), pantothenic acid (vit.B-5), pyridoxine (vit.B-6), and riboflavin. Further, its florets also hold some amount of omega-3 fatty acids.

5.  Dates

(1/2 cup contains 35 mg) I love dates, I use them in my salad dressing and I use them as an alternate to “sugar” in my baking recipes or even stews to add some sweetness… they are also an excellent source of iron,  potassium.  manganese, copper,moderate levels of B-complex group of vitamins as well as vitamin K. It contains very good amounts of pyridoxine (vitamin B-6), niacin, pantothenic acid, and riboflavin.

There you have it… put the glass of milk down and stay clear of dairy, … not only does it contain Puss, it is not meant for humans… just look around you at how many people are Lactose Intolerant!! and of course it is VERY high in fat!

    1. I think A plant based Vegan diet is perfect for weightloss… restricting only leads to health issues and binging 😦 I follow a High card low fat vegan diet and I have gotten great results!! and I eat all the time not counting calories 🙂 just have to make sure to eat enough of the right kind of calories restricting the “fat” hope that helps… there is a girl on youtube called Freelee the banana Girl and she gives some really great advice on how to be a high carb low fat vegan 🙂

  1. Thank you for posting this! As a lactose intolerant person, I hear “but how do you get enough calcuim?” WAY too much too! There are plenty of great calcium sources out there. I wasn’t even aware of the turnip greens. I will have to try those out too! Thanks again 🙂
