There is this idea that was programmed into our minds from a young age that we needed animal products to have strong bones and strong muscles. “Milk Does A Body Good” Well, maybe…maybe if it is your mother’s breast milk they are referring to and you are a newborn baby.
For those of you out there wondering…”but what about CALCIUM!?!”…did you know that just one cup of spinach has as much calcium as a glass of milk? Eat your dark leafy green veggies and you won’t have to worry about calcium. Sesame seeds, broccoli, kale, spinach, collard greens, almonds, brazil nuts, tahini, swiss chard, oranges, papaya… all of these amazing foods have calcium, plus many more!
