Today at work I did a little (emphasis on a little) looking into paleo diet. It seems like something I would want to start as it's much more healthy than the average american diet. But, I briefly noticed that 100% Paleo doesn't allow dairy consumption. How would one get their calcium intake if following the diet strictly?

I wrote about this here (http://www.modernforager.com/blog/2008/05/08/milk-does-it-do-a-body-good-part-1-calcium-and-osteoporosis/). Milk isn't the only source of calcium and calcium isn't as important as the dairy industry would have you believe (though it is important in balance with other minerals).
