Best Foods to Eat for Your Bones
According to Bone Science, “Super Foods for Your Bones” dated May 31, 2021,
the list of the best superfoods are as follows:
Dark, leafy greens:
That includes Kale (the new popular green for restaurants), collard greens,
Swiss chard, bok choy, and turnip greens. They are all high in calcium and contain Vitamin K. If you are anything like me, I may eat Kale out of this group in distress!
Grapefruit, oranges, lemons, and limes all contain Vitamin C.
Freshly squeezed orange juice works too.
Salmon is one fish with a lot of benefits, including Vitamin D, calcium, and omega-3 fatty acids. It is a win-win!
Almonds contain calcium, potassium, and protein. One cup contains 246
milligrams of calcium.
Tofu is a great source of protein, calcium, iron, and potassium. It is highly
recommended as it completes 100% of your daily value of calcium.
Personally, I am not a fan, so I will look elsewhere for my calcium!
Chia Seeds & Rolled Oats:
Chia seeds are surprisingly good for you. Not something that we would expect. Sprinkle them on yogurt, pudding, cereal, etc. to add a healthy punch to your meal.
Rolled oats are high in protein and zinc. A great breakfast food, oatmeal with a sprinkle of chia seeds, some almond flakes, and a few blueberries.
These superfoods are all great for you but it is probable that you will not like all of them or you may be allergic to some of them. Pick and choose something that you can stick to and supplement with Vitamin D and K.
Keep your bones strong and healthy but if you do have a fall: remember www.cast-style.com. Even a broken bone needs a night out!
