Endorsed by the Osteoprosis Society of Canada Get what you need, even with today's busy lifestyle. Calcium isn't just for kids. It's vital for a healthy pregnancy, and can also help lower high blood pressure, reduce the risk of colon cancer, and control obesity and diabetes in adults. And having enough calcium throughout life ensures protection against osteoporosis in old age. Adults need up to 1200 mg of calcium a day--children and pregnant women need even more--to keep the body healthy. That translates to three to four servings of calcium-rich foods such as milk, cheese and a variety of leafy green vegetables every day. In The Everyday Calcium Cookbook, you'll find dozens of tasty, inventive ways to incorporate more calcium into a healthy diet. Packed with striking colour photography of simple-to-prepare recipes such as "Apple Havarti Toss," "Creamy Camembert and Fresh Mushroom Soup," and "Wonderful Fruit Calfouti," The Calcium--Rich Cookbook is sure to appeal to the tastes of both adults and children. Expert nutritionist Helen Bishop MacDonald helps you choose the right foods, provides details on nutrition and suggests food combinations that facilitate calcium absorption. She also provides valuable information on osteoporosis and lactose-intolerance, as well there are important guidelines for the growing vegan population. The Everyday Calcium Cookbook offers simple, healthy and appetizing recipes along with valuable nutritional information designed to maximize the amount of calcium in everyone's diet.(May 2004)
