I eat three on this list, but don't have trouble getting enough calcium in my diet. The organic almond and coconut milks I drink are also higher in calcium than cow's milk. Other vegan sources of calcium that I eat include regularly green leafy vegetables, raw fennel, amaranth, beans (navy, white, great northern, etc.), oranges, apricots, black berries, dates, chickpeas, sesame seeds, tahini, nuts (almonds, peanuts, brazil nuts, walnuts) and nut butters, chia seeds, flax seeds, dill, basil, etc.

Spices that are a good source of calcium include: celery seeds, dill (seeds & weed), poppy seeds, fennel, cumin, coriander, caraway, anise, yellow mustard, peppermint, spearmint, fenugreek, basil and parsley. I regularly use these spices in my cooking, boosting my intake of calcium and other minerals.
