Salmon might not be the first food you think of for stronger bones, but Clark says canned salmon with bones in particular is a good one to consider.
It’s got calcium and vitamin D to help keep your bones strong. Salmon is also loaded with omega-3s, which help curb inflammation.
Clark recommends making salmon patties from canned salmon.
Another bonus: “When you eat salmon, you’re not eating barbecued spareribs — the kind of foods that create the joint problems.”
Other foods to try: Low- or no-fat plain yogurt or milk, which are both high in calcium and vitamin D. Try other naturally oily fish, such as trout or sardines, for their omega-3s.
