At 33% of recommended daily intake per serving, I guess it is. 1 serving has more calcium than 1 Tums tablet, which many people take as a calcium supplement.

Dark green vegetables provide more calcium, but probably don’t go well with milk and sugar.

Whenever my wife tells me to eat my veggies ‘cause they’re a good source of (insert vitamin/mineral here), I say “you know what else is an excellent source of (insert vitamin/mineral here)? My multivitamin!

But you can’t put dressing on a multi-vitamin. (I suppose you can.)

Eat your veggies because they taste good. I just had this, for example.

I used a fresh whole-wheat baguette sliced thinly on the diagonal (/).
