  • When you combine an iron rich food with a food that has vitamin C, the absorption rate of the iron is increased. Dried beans and dark leafy vegetables are great. You can make a smoothie with frozen blueberries (a great antioxidant), yogurt (good germs), orange juice (vitamin C) and Kale (iron). Go here:, scroll down and you will see a listing of iron-rich foods.
