One of the largest misconceptions about the Paleo diet is that you experience a calcium deficiency since dairy products are not permitted. This couldn’t be anymore untrue because there are various ways to get your daily dose of calcium, without having any dairy in your diet. The top 10 ways to get this blast of calcium into your system, without jeopardizing your caveman or cavewoman ways are:
- canned salmon (the bones contain all the calcium)
- dried figs
- bok choy (aka: Chinese cabbage)
- sesame seeds
- turnip greens
These are only some of the foods that could be hunted and gathered, and that also have sufficient amounts of calcium, as well as many other vital nutrients and minerals. On the plus side, you get all of that without the negative effects that come along with the calcium supplied from dairy products.
