Misc Tip Want more calcium in your diet? Try canned salmon. Canned pink salmon with the bonessupplies 30 percent of your daily needs.
To bone up on calcium, add canned salmon to your weekly menu. One 3.5-ounce serving of canned pink salmon with bones supplies nearly 30 percent of your daily calcium needs, as well as more than 100 percent of your daily requirement of vitamin D, which helps your body absorb the mineral. As a bonus, canned salmon has four times the omega-3s as canned tuna — and most brands are usually wild-caught. If you’re wary of the bones, know that the canning process makes them so soft that they can be mashed with a fork. Toss it into pasta dishes or casseroles, turn it into salmon cakes or burgers, or use it in your favorite fish taco recipe.
