My reply: There are lots of non-dairy sources of calcium…
Blackstrap molasses, Collard greens, Soy or ricemilk, Commercial soy yogurt, Turnip greens, Tofu, Tempeh, Kale, Okra, Bok choy, Mustard greens, Tahini, Almonds, Almond butter, Soy milk, etc
Sesame is brimming with calcium. In the form of tahini it is great. Combined with chickpeas in hummous, or on toast with honey…mmm…!!!
Here’s LOTS of information about non-dairy calcium sources.
