Re: recipe ideas for calcium

I haven't cooked any of those, but one option is to take a calcium-magnesium-zinc supplement to make up for the calcium you're not getting from dairy. Aside from that, as Cordain points out in his book, your calcium intake doesn't matter too much because (assuming you're eating mostly Paleo) a Paleo diet is alkaline-producing due to all the fruits and vegetables and lack of grains. Grains and other acid-producing foods lead your body to break down muscles and bones in an effort to neutralize acidic blood. So adequate calcium is a matter of calcium balance (calcium in minus calcium out) rather than strictly a matter of intake.
