Non Dairy Foods Rich In Calcium
Whether its due to lactose intolerance or living a vegan lifestyle, there are plenty of reasons to stop drinking milk and quit eating dairy products. Sometimes people worry that they will have a calcium deficiency if they quit dairy.
After all - the milk companies put in lots of time and money to convince us that we must drink milk everyday. Growing up, the phrase "Got Milk?" made us feel as if our bones would shrivel up and break if we failed to chug milk everyday by the gallons. It really was clever marketing.
Now we know that cow's milk might not be so awesome, especially when you consider the pus content, hormones and the fact the humans are not baby cows. Lucky for us - there are plenty of calcium rich foods that are non-dairy - so we are not stuck with milk.
