Delectable Recipes High in Calcium


1.Grilled Sardines With Aioli

Sardines may be small, but they’re big fish when it comes to calcium. A serving can help you get to the 1,000 milligrams a day that most adults need. Try fresh sardines — tossed on the grill for a smoky, delicious hors d’oeuvre. Drizzle with garlicky aioli sauce for as much calcium as you’d get in 8 ounces of yogurt.

Sardines (3 ounces): 325 milligrams calcium
Aioli sauce (2 tablespoons): 21 milligrams calcium


2.Arugula Salad

When it comes to leafy greens, arugula is a super food: rich in vitamins and bone-building calcium. Toss in some shredded Parmesan cheese and slivered almonds to get 125 milligrams of calcium in a small, tasty salad.

Arugula (1 cup): 32 milligrams calcium
Almonds (12 nuts): 30 milligrams calcium
Parmesan (1 tablespoon): 63 milligrams calcium
