Understanding Veganism And A Vegan Diet And Making The Switch
Where Do You Get Your Calcium On A Vegan Diet?
We have been taught to think that cow’s milk is our best or maybe even our only source of calcium. This is absolutely false. Plant foods like kale are loaded with calcium and its calcium is absorbed almost twice as well as the body can absorb the calcium from cow’s milk. The bonus gotten from getting your calcium from sources like kale is it is packaged with fiber, folate, iron, antioxidants, and the bone supporting vitamin K. In contrast cow’s milk comes packaged with saturated butter fat, cholesterol, lactose, antibiotics, pesticides, puss, and manure.
