Delicious Ways to Support Bone Health

To live a life we love, we know we need strong bones.  There are many things you can do to keep your bones healthy and strong.  Aside from taking the right supplements, you can give yourself optimum bone strength by adding a bone-healthy diet to your bone-building regimen.

What is a bone-healthy diet? Calcium is the main building material of bone.  In addition to calcium, our bodies need other important nutrients such as magnesium, protein, vitamin K, and vitamin D for keeping our bones strong and healthy.  Milk, cheese, yogurt and other dairy products; and green, leafy vegetables such as spinach, broccoli and kale are good sources of calcium.  Beans are vitamin K–rich foods. Legumes, nuts and fruits are good sources of magnesium.  

Try our delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes which feature calcium and these other important nutrients for bone health.  We suggest you use organic ingredients.
