But how do you get calcium?
I’ve been asked this question A LOT (several times over the past weekend alone) so please enjoy and absorb the following information.
The above picture is 2 cups of steamed kale and 2 cups of steamed spinach with some garlic totaling over 900mgs of calcium! That’s three times as much calcium as a cup of skim milk (whole milk is lower in calcium).
Not only that, leafy greens are alkalinizing, rich in vitamins and minerals, and calorie for calorie one of highest protein sources out there.
Dairy on the other hand creates an acidic environment in your body which in turn leaches calcium from your bones! The countries with the highest dairy consumptions also happen to have the highest rates of osteoporosis.
