We can’t underestimate the power of calcium for women especially over the age of 50.
From bone health to heart health, the nervous system and more,calcium is a key player in women’s health . With so many of us having gone dairy free it’s important to know some plant based calcium foods.
Here is a list:
Chia seeds ( chia pudding recipe below)
Moringa Powder ( avoid using if preganant or lactating)
Orange juice ( calcium fortified)
Calcium is an important mineral for overall health. Aim to eat 2-3 plant based serving per day of calcium.
To make chia pudding ( which I love for breakfast)
Add 3-4 TBSP of chia seeds to a cup of plant based milk- either almond, oat, or coconut milk.
Use a ball jar or covered container to make this.
Add honey, maple syrup or stevia to taste.
I like to add cinnamon and a little vanilla.
Stir the milk then let it sit on counter for five minutes- stir again to distribute the seeds and put in refrigerator overnight.
In the morning I take it out first thing so I can eat it a t room temperature.
Top with fruit – sliced almonds or granola.
with fierce love,
