Top 5 Breakfast Foods for Strong Bones
You might not think much about how strong your bones are… until one of them breaks.
Then you’re in big trouble.
Because if you’re over age 65 and experience a fracture, you’re up to FOUR times more likely to die in the next YEAR, especially if you suffer a hip fracture.
Here’s my point: The time to take action to make sure your bones are healthy and strong is NOW.
And you can start with what you’re eating for breakfast.
Eating the right foods can supply your body with the key nutrients your bones need.
And many of those foods happen to be found at the breakfast table.
For example, eggs are loaded with protein.
Protein makes up about 50 percent of your bone volume, making it essential for preventing osteoporosis.
Eggs also contain vitamin D, which plays a major role in bone health because it helps your body absorb calcium.
Calcium gives your bones an important two-for-one. In addition to building bone, it actively slows the pace of bone loss.
Eggs won’t give you all the vitamin D you need. For that you’ll need to head outside and spend some time in the sun.
(Personally, I like to eat my breakfast outdoors for another two-for-one benefit.)
And don’t skip the yolk, since that’s where the vitamin D is found.
Add in some sauteed mushrooms to your eggs for an added vitamin D boost. One study showed that eating vitamin D-rich mushrooms actually increased bone density!
I also recommend having a side of Greek yogurt, which provides both calcium and protein, as well as magnesium and phosphorus — two additional bone-building nutrients.
And finally, wash it all down with your choice of milk or orange juice. Both are jam-packed with calcium and vitamin D.
P.S. There’s a key nutrient that can dramatically strengthen your bones in just six weeks (and it’s not calcium or vitamin D). Read about it, right here.

Living longer is about more than adding years to your life. It’s about living healthy and disease-free no matter your chronological age.
