“Where do you get your calcium?”
While you may not hear it as often as the ubiquitous protein question, nevertheless, calcium and dairy products are inextricably linked in the minds of most people. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of calcium rich foods that don’t come from a cow. VRG’s newly-updated article Calcium in the Vegan Diet contains a list of vegan sources of calcium, as well as sample menus that provide more than the recommended 1,000 mg per day.
Calcium in the Vegan Diet is excerpted from the newly released 5th Edition of Simply Vegan. For a limited time, we’re offering 50% off the cover price when you order 5 copies from our online bookstore. For more information about vegan nutrition, visit the Nutrition section of our website.
