It isn't just what you eat in regards to calcium, it is what you absorb. Fruits have tiny amounts. Legumes make a contribution, but their absorbibility isn't all that great.

The green leafy cruciferous vegetables, the kind you have to cook have a decent amount, but you still have to eat so much to get the US RDA I think absorbability is an issue in this situation and in the situation of people who rely on huge salads for their meals.

Is every bite of those vegetables thoroughly chewed and do our digestive systems get all of the calcium in those greens, when we eat huge amounts wolfed down?
