Got Milk?

Lately, I have felt like someone has kicked me in the ribs so this morning I googled rib cage pain and the word osteoporosis kept showing up. I admit that I don’t drink enough milk and exercise is NOT one of my many hobbies so I am looking to find more calcium to put into my diet. I’m sure that many of my vegetables that I am growing in the cold frames will have lots of calcium but they aren’t quite ready to eat. So I took my vitamin and got a big glass of milk. Guess I’ll start making sure I look for calcium rich foods and see if that helps with the achey old bones.

According to this medical website, osteoporosis is the thinning of bone tissue and loss of bone density over time. I am over 50 so I guess it is time for some of these issues to start showing up.

In the meantime, I’ll try to take better care of my bones and hope a glass of milk and vitamins and veggies will help. I do love plain yogurt, cheeses, almonds, broccoli and Swiss chard, which I have already been harvesting from the cold frames.

These articles have some good information as well…

And if you have any good calcium rich recipes to send my way, please do.
