One of the things we have been taught from an early age is that you need to have dairy as part of your daily diet in order to get calcium. It's recommended that adult men and women between the ages of 19 and 50 years old get at least 1,000 mg per day, and that number goes up to 1,200 for women over 50 years old.
While dairy is a good source, what are vegans supposed to do in order to get enough calcium?
Fortunately there are plenty of places to get enough calcium without having to turn to supplements. Nature is great at providing us with what we need to live healthy lifestyles.
Here are just 5 of the many sources of calcium that are found in the plant world. Many of these veggies are probably already a part of your healthy eating meal plan.
