You may be more familiar with the more appealing name "edamame." Soybeans boast a whopping 506mg of calcium per cup, blowing milk out of the water. Not only do these fiber-rich calcium bombs help fill you up, they’re also the highest quality protein, according to guidelines used by the Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization.
One of the more underrated condiments in existence, tahini -- a paste made of toasted sesame seeds -- contains loads of calcium, which should totally justify that hummus or babaganoush binge you went on. Calcium bonus achieved if you made a kale salad with great northern beans and a tahini dressing.
For dessert, dive into some figs, which you can wash down with a tall glass of almond milk. A large fig offers more than 20mg of calcium, which is an excuse to eat 15 of 'em in a single sitting. Just keep in mind that calcium isn't the only nutrient your body needs, so try to mix it up from time to time.
