Is there a more politically correct way to to say “dowager’s hump”. Oh, yes… “dorsal kyphosis”. Sorry if I offended any of you dowagers out there.
I need plenty of calcium to stave off osteoporosis. It’s better to get your calcium in your meals than by taking supplements, but I do both (but only one calcium tablet daily) .
Anyway, one way I get extra calcium through food is by putting powdered milk into my tea instead of liquid 1% or skim milk. That’s my little canister on the left. A scoopful is usually enough for my oversize mug (that’s roughly one tablespoon and delivers 95 mg calcium per cuppa tea).
Bonus: the tea stays hotter, is fat-free and looks whiter. Another bonus: we go through less liquid milk, which weighs a ton when I lug the 3-bag packs home from the store. Powdered milk is a lot less heavy – there goes my resistance training!
