There is no question that building and maintaining strong muscles and bones is a really important to optimal wellness. Personally, I never give much thought to my bone health, as I am a strong believer that strength training is the single most important thing we can do to either maintain or increase bone density. Just as people are concerned about getting enough protein on a plant-based diet, we also need to make sure we are living in a way that supports strong muscles and of course our skeleton! Without good bones we are like clothes without a hanger, just waiting to fall and crumble. While we have been raised (by the dairy industry) to believe that dairy is the key to strong bones (and have been wooed by beautiful people sporting milk mustaches) I choose “not milk” over “got milk” and am certain that we can all get more than enough calcium (and probably absorb it much more efficiently) by simply remembering to include some of the foods below. Most non-dairy milks contain a large amount of calcium and often cereals are calcium fortified as well. But who knew even a little orange can help build strong bones?
