Thanks for the list of calcium-rich foods; it is a great "memory-jogger" of all the great foods that we can eat (including a yummy, low-fat milkshake). :-)

For those of us who are Southerners, I thought I'd also point out another calcium-rich food that is a staple in many outdoor outings: baked beans! :-)

1 cup of baked beans = over 150 mg of calcium
(www.mypyramid.gov can provide you with an individualized recommended daily allowance of calcium your body needs, depending on your gender, age and dietary needs).

There are some great recipes online for baked beans that use brown sugar in moderation. Send me a message and I'll send you a link to my favorite "healthier" baked bean recipe!
