Foods to Help Prevent Osteoporosis

Because I had to have a hysterectomy at 36 due to Ovarian Cancer, one of the side effects is the risk of developing Osteoporosis at an early age.  Along with having to take extra calcium and vitamin D there are many foods you can eat that will help you get your daily value of calcium.  Here is a list I got from of calcium rich foods you can add to your diet:

  1. Low-fat or non-fat dairy products
  2. Canned sardines and canned sockeye salmon
  3. Dark green vegetables such as broccoli, collard greens and bok choy
  4. Tofu
  5. Calcium-fortified juices and carrageenan free soy milk
  6. Black-eyed peas
  7. Blackstrap molasses
  8. Poppy seeds and sesame seeds
  9. Almonds
  10. Figs
