  • dark leafy veggies. Spinach is a big one and you can mix it in a lot of recipes you already make.

  • Fortunately, iron rich foods like lentils and chickpeas are very inexpensive. You can find a listing of iron rich foods here: Be sure to include a vitamin C source with the iron source; C increases the absorption of the iron. Also, cut way back on, or eliminate dairy, as this leaches iron.

    I have many great recipes I would be happy to share with you; send me a message if you are interested.
