Healthy Bones Action Week II - Shop Savvy 3 August 2016

Have you started enjoying some bone-friendly recipes from last week?
Because we're officially in the midst of Healthy Bones Action Week!

To read more about this bone-health week visit our previous blog.
Calcium and vitamin D are two of the most important nutrients when it comes to bone health.
You can get plenty of calcium from dairy as well as dark leafy greens, almonds, tofu, seaweed, and tahini.
Vitamin D aren't in many foods, but fish (e.g. salmon) and eggs are a good source.
Also don't forget the special fungi (= mushrooms). They can generate vitamin D when exposed to sunlight!

If you're looking to really take care of your bones, then exercise (especially weight bearing) will be beneficial. Actually, adequate weight bearing is essential to build and maintain strong bones.
Our friend Alan has given us tips on how to make time to exercise.
