So maybe you’re allergic to shellfish and you can’t eat crab and oysters to help build stronger bones. What else can you eat on a regular basis to avoid bone problems when you advance in years? Here are some more alternatives.
This crunchy green leafy vegetable is very rich in calcium, the main nutrient that helps in bone health. More than that, though, bok choy also contains vitamins and iron, making it a very healthy treat for you. There are many ways to prepare bok choy – your imagination’s the limit!
I love this fruit. It is very versatile. You can it eat as it is – just peel and pop into your mouth. You can make desserts. You can make smoothies. The great thing about bananas, aside from the taste, is that it contains potassium, which is responsible for preventing calcium loss in the body.
While I do not know many people who like kiwi, I highly suggest this fruit as an alternative to other snacks. Just lie bananas, kiwis contain a lot of potassium. In addition to this, however, this fruit also has a lot of vitamins as well as lutein, which is needed to help reduce the risk of heart problems.
Steamed broccoli – crunchy and sweet….You can’t get any better than that! And while there are people who hate this veggie, it does pack a lot of calcium, together with other nutrients. Broccoli is a perfect side dish to meat, which is just right for me!
