    sounds like a delicious idea! what kind of bones would you recommend?
    My parents make oxtail soup sometimes and big globs of fat float on the surface overnight, I know fat is not bad, but is there a thing called too much fat?

    Marrow bones with the joints! Oxtail makes great stew. If you are worried about the fat, you can skim it off when it solidifies. I think the fat is okay if the beef is grass-fed.

    Pork ribs also make delicious broth. It does not have such a strong taste like beef does.

    Sardines is also a good source of calcium. The smaller ones are tastier. I eat the bones and everything.

    Yep, fish and animal bones and their stock is a good source. Leafy greens aren't bad. Calcium really isn't that great by itself, as it needs Vit D and K2 to make it at all useful. Most calcium supplements are the equivalent of chalk which just loves to deposit in your artery walls.
