Good To The Calcium Bone

**found in Shape Magazine, June 2011

Did you know that Dairy is an excellent source of calcium-one glass of nonfat mill contains 299 milligrams (mg), a third of your daily dose-but it's not the only one.  Think outside the carton with these suprising options.

Tofu
Choose a block made with calcium sulfate (a curdling agent) and you'll get 431mg per quarter cup.

Orange Juice
A 8-ounce glass of calcium-fortified OJ boasts 350mg and fulfills 120 percent of your daily vitamin C requirement.

Sardines
This sustainable fish packs 351mg per can, much of which is found in the soft (and completely edible!) bones.

Collards
You'll find nearly 270mg in 1 cup of cooked greens, plus 7 grams of filling fiber.  Boil until tender, then saute in olive oil.

Enjoy!
