Can I get enough Calcium on a Raw-Vegan Diet?

By Brigitte Lang

You would think it would be nearly impossible to get enough calcium on a raw-vegan diet.  That is not the case; this essential mineral is plentiful in a raw-vegan diet.

Coconuts: Young Thai coconuts are rich sources of calcium with the average coconut providing 10-17% RDA (recommended daily allowance) of calcium. 

Dark, Leafy Greens: These green vegetables are an excellent source of calcium. Dandelion greens are the richest source and kale following a close second.

Dandelion and kale are not the only greens with calcium. Spinach, Swiss chard, collard greens, beet greens, turnip greens, leaf lettuce and romaine all have varying levels of calcium.
