Dieting for better bones

Week 1 Post 2

Who doesn’t like an excuse to eat ice cream? Well, what if I told you that it has the same health benefits as sardines and tofu? It’s true! All three are high in calcium, which is good for your bones.

This month is Osteoporosis Awareness Month, and in light of that, we thought that for today’s blog we would talk about what you can do to prevent brittle bones—or, if you already have them, what you can do to help them. Specifically, we want to talk about how diet plays into it.

I know, I know, no one wants to think about dieting. But, it doesn’t have to be all that bad—in fact, some high-calcium choices can be downright tasty! And, they don’t all have to be dairy products, contrary to popular belief. We’re going to list a few menu items for each meal of the day that are loaded with calcium:

Breakfast:

  • Take some yogurt and mix it up with almonds and orange slices
  • If you like cereal, think Cheerios—and pour some soy milk on! Both are loaded with calcium

Lunch:

  • Salads with nice, leafy greens like collard greens, spinach and bok choy. Throw on some salmon, and presto! Calcium-rich lunch.
  • If you like to pair you salad with soup, have a side of black-eyed pea soup.

Dinner

  • Good news for pasta lovers—it’s on the menu! Pair it with white beans and collard greens, and you have a bone-healthy dish.
  • Same thing is true for pizza lovers. We’ve all heard jokes about anchovies on pizza, but they’re actually a really good source of calcium.

If you are living with osteoporosis, remember, it doesn’t have the final say in your mobility. At Electric Scooter Store, we have a number of products in our online catalog that can help you get around.
