Every year I have a physical and my doctor checks my iron level. This year it was a tad low so she suggested a few foods to incorporate into my diet, in addition to my daily multivitamin. When she handed me the sheet of recommendations I was so surprised to see a lot unexpected things on the list. There were all sorts of beans, non-green vegetables, and even fruit! I’d always associated iron with images of Popeye slugging cans of spinach so you can imagine my surprise when I learned there were many more healthy and tasty dishes that could accomplish the same thing. I thought I would share these recommendations with you. These numbers are based on this document from the University of Illinois.
