If you're vegetarian or don't eat much meat, and you worry you may be missing out on essential bone-building nutrients, don't! You can get all the protein and calcium you need from soy-based foods. Research shows tofu, soybeans and tempeh may even slow bone loss and prevent fractures.
Amp up tofu's nutritional value: You can get even more bone-building benefit if tofu is combined with calcium. Our consulting dietician, Mary Bamford, suggests blending it with milk or yogurt in your morning smoothie or cubing it in a cold pasta salad with cheese.
