Foods high in calcium

These foods will give you a good idea of what to eat if you are in need of more calcium (not a complete list):

Cheeses and dairy products (low fat if watching cholesterol, but dairy products are best calcium source as they are easily absorbed into the body), milk, legumes, salmon, sardines (with bones), tofu, yogurt, almonds, broccoli, and dark leafy vegetables (kale or collard greens).
Be sure you are able to tolerate these foods, and which ones are approved/suggested by your doctor, before 'diving' in to them :o)
