    I need more calcium: Homemade granola bars?

    Hi all,

    I've recently gone dairy-free because I have IBS (and I'm on an anti-cancer diet as a means of being proactive; I had a lot of x-rays and a few CT scans as a kid). I feel so much better.

    However, I'm concerned now that I won't get enough calcium in my diet. I can't have soy due to hypothyroidism, and I haven't found an almond milk that doesn't contain carrageenan. Until then, I was thinking of making some homemade granola bars (healthy, reasonable in terms of unhealthy fats/calories, etc.) that include many calcium-rich foods -- oatmeal, blackstrap molasses, figs, raisins, sesame seeds, almonds, etc. I'd like to get at least 200mg of calcium per bar. I'll get the rest of my calcium from fortified orange juice and spinach, salmon, beans/soups and the like.

    Don't forget almond butter. You can add it to so many things, including soup, stew and even your morning oatmeal!

    Sesame seeds have the most calcium. 1 quarter cup of sesame seeds has 351 mg calcium. But eat green veggies too. 1 cup of boiled collard greens has 266 mg of calcium.

    I'm on a dairy-free diet; unfortunately, milk won't be of much help.

    Almond Milk without Carrageenan

    365 Whole Foods
    Natura (8 flavors)
    OMilk NYC
    Silk PureAlmond (including chocolate-flavored)
    Westsoy
    Trader Joe’s (refrigerated)




    You are taking some magnesium, too, right? I do the oil. And Biotics Research Bio d Mulsion Forte for D3 unless you get a good amount of sunshine ON YOUR BARE skin--leave it on there for a couple of hours (4 drops of Biotics D3 equal 8000IU) and Vit K2(I do the gardenoflife stuff).

    BROCCOLI and BRUSSEL SPROUTS!!

    KALE!!!!!!

    Canned salmon - eat with bones.

    Black strap molasses (I only use organic)

    Cooked turnip greens

    Sea vegetables (seaweed)(dried powdered form)

    nori 1,200
    kombu 2,100
    wakame 3,500
    agar-agar 1,000, 62.5 per tablespoon

    Seeds

    almonds 750
    hazelnuts (filbert) 450
    walnuts 280
    sesame seeds (whole, unhulled) 2,100
    sunflower seeds 260

    The following herbs contain variable amounts of calcium:

    borage, lamb's quarter, wild lettuce, nettles, burdock, yellow dock

    Again, go ORGANIC and non-irridated.
