Got Milk? Nope

Are you concerned about calcium intake? Milk contains lactic acid that actually uses calcium to alkalize the acid. Dairy products do little to  increase the body’s calcium. Instead, get calcium from other foods like soy milk which has just as much calcium as milk and no lactic acid. Another food that has lots of calcium is green leafy vegetables like kale, spinach, and collard greens. Steam these greens and add  sautéed mushrooms and onions. Toss with a little flax oil and Braggs Liquid Aminos (kinda like soy sauce but less salt), sprinkle with sesame seeds or ground flax seeds (also high in calcium) and there is a delicious dish full of calcium. Here are some other surprising foods that contain calcium: oranges, beans, and broccoli. Keep the body alkaline by eating lots of fruits and vegetables.
