I eat peas and lima beans on a regular basis.. mmm I love them. Peas are also good if you are tired or sluggish.That is because they provide nutrients that help support the energy-producing cells and systems of the body.

Green peas a very good source of thiamin-vitamin B1 and a good source of vitamin B6, riboflavin-vitamin B2 and niacin-vitamin B3, all of which are nutrients that are necessary for carbohydrate, protein and lipid metabolism.


I soo recommend peas and lima beans. :)

While this may not be true across the board, 1 cup of my local brand of NSA canned turnip greens (Best Choice) supplies 480 mg of calcium.

This is virtually identical to the 488 mg of calcium per cup of nonfat yogurt (Hy Vee).

Except for dietary supplements, I have not found any other sources of calcium that come very close to these two.

ok Jo, spelling has been fixed!

Collard.....not collared!!! It makes you a bit less believable if you can't spell, otherwise, a great post.

In response to your request for further information on this topic, I would recommend "Save Our Bones" by Vivian Goldschmidt. The book explains that since calcium is also high in acid, the calcium in milk is exhausted as it neutralizes the acid; therefore we do not get much benefit from the calcium in milk.

ive always been told how fattening dairy is.
but i just cant get over my love for yogurt and milk! these two foods are probably two of my favorites, and its hard to cut down on those to eat veggies. i really love veggies too, but nothings like the creamy taste of yogurt or milk for me. :(

I so agree with this! I still eat a little cheese (on a veggie burger) or a cup of yogurt here and there, but I'm done forever with cow's milk. So, I love finding other sources of calcium, and I hadn't thought of chick peas, which I love!

I just read one of Dr. Fuhrman's books, and thought it was excellent. I wish I had the fortitude to do a fast, but I'm working up to it!
