The Best Dairy-Free Ways to Get More Calcium #8: Almonds

October 30, 2014 1 min read

Almonds are one of those nuts that you see on nearly every list of healthy foods, thanks to the fact that they're so rich in fiber, fatty acids, and minerals. They're also one of the tastiest nuts on the planet! In ¼ cup of dry-roasted almonds--roughly 20 to 25 nuts--you get 72 milligrams of calcium, roughly 7% of your Daily Value. Eat a couple of handfuls of nuts throughout the day as a snack, and you'll be adding a lot of calcium to your diet! [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Source: thenourishingcook.com[/caption] Almonds are one of the most nutritionally dense of the nuts, and they have LOADS of fiber and minerals packed into such a small nut. They're not only rich in calcium, but they also provide:
  • Potassium (needed for healthy muscle function, as it prevents water retention)
  • Vitamin E (protects your skin from damage, coats your arteries to stop plaque from forming)
  • Iron (needed for the production of red blood cells)
As you can see, it's time to go nuts for almonds!
