15 Vegan Calcium Sources

May 01, 2014 1 min read

My cousin’s girlfriend recently became vegan, so in addition to having delicious vegan Shepherd’s pie on Easter, there was also a lot of talk about vegan diets. Being a vegetarian I get similar tirades on how I manage to get my protein from some of my relatives (or complete strangers sometimes), but she has the added bonus of people bugging her about how she’s going to get her calcium. calcium vegan diet Here are 15 vegan sources of calcium– no dairy necessary.
  1. Kale (1 cup contains 180 mg)
  2. Collard Greens (1 cup contains over 350 mg)

The recommended daily intake of calcium varies with age, but generally you should aim for 1000 - 1200mg a day. Calcium is in many fruits, vegetables, and nuts, so whether you’re vegan, lactose intolerant, or just not a milk fan you can still easily get enough calcium in your diet. calcium calvin and hobbes
