Eager to eliminate dairy from my diet, I've had to dig a little deeper into the calcium issue. With no milk, will my bones collapse? What are other sources of calcium? Is it healthy to not eat any dairy products? Answers: no, kale (for example), yes.
Recently I heard that almonds are a great source of calcium, so I clickety-clacked over to NutritionData.com to find out. This is an awesome site for all nutritional data inquiries. Turns out, almonds kick whole milk's butt in % daily values of calcium.
