Dairy isn’t the only resource for calcium. As a matter of fact, calcium wouldn’t even be present in milk if the cows didn’t eat grass (aka plants). Either way, calcium is found quite readily in plant-based foods

Good sources for calcium in a plant-based diet:

  • Soy products – tofu, soy milk
  • Nuts – almonds, peanuts, cashews
  • Legumes
  • Tahini – Bonus: unhulled tahini has up to 10 times more calcium than ordinary white tahini
  • Green vegetables – broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, green beans, leeks, and leafy greens
  • Fruits – oranges, figs
  • Whole grains – oats
  • Seitan – go for plain or frozen – other varieties often have a lot of salt or oil
