That sounds so good. I am steaming some broccoli and cauliflower today. Thanks for the tip!

It is really simple. I cook broccoli and /or califlower then drain most of the water off. Add a cup almond milk and a cheese slice. Heat until the cheese is melted. You can add a vegetable bouillon cube, I use a quarter of a cube, Thicken with a little corn starch if desired.. It is easy and good. Fills me up.

I make soup using almond milk. It is low in calories and a cup has 40percent of your daily requirements.

The best way to get more calcium is to improve your diet.
Spinach
Kale
Okra
Collards
Soy beans
White beans, kidney beans, chickpeas
Some fish, like sardines, salmon, perch, and rainbow trout, herring

Foods that are calcium fortified, such as some orange juice, oatmeal, and breakfast cereal,
yogurt

Mushrooms contain natural insulin and enzymes that break down starch and sugar in foods. You will benefit from vitamin D, the B vitamins, Iron Calcium and potassium.

Onions Yellow onions provide us with A, C, and calcium and act as a natural diuretic which increases urine output.

Almonds, anchovies, flaxseeds,
Sweet Potatoes will benefit you with beta carotene, Vitamin C, folate, manganese and calcium.

I stopped taking calcium supplements and would like to know a few other ways to add more into my diet. I'm not to big on dairy products and add skim milk to my coffee in place of creamer and sometime eat yogurt or cheese. I don't care for soy, almond, and other "milks" as some don't agree with me. Ideas about eating the recommended amount through food Please.
