DH just called, all the work pizza disappeared. And my mouth was just set for it.

Update DH called again, he found a couple slices of taco pizza in the work fridge! And will bring them home for me! Not my favorite, but it will do!

I found out I am super anemic today so will be having spinach and kale with maybe a small piece of chicken and some potato wedges.

TB said if I am a good girl and eat all my food I will get ice cream for dessert!

Both Stirling and I are feeling kinda out of it today. Neither one of us was willing to boil some pasta, so we ordered from Bofingers. I ordered BBQ beef ribs and Stirling got a pulled pork sandwich. Yummy as usual. They gave me a really big serving, so I have snacks. I really like their citrusy "Alabama sauce", hardly sweet at all.

To help absorb the iron in the spinach and kale, don't forget vitamin C. "Spinach is high in oxalic acid, which can bind with iron and calcium and cause your body to absorb less of these nutrients. Consuming foods rich in vitamin C, such as tomatoes, capsicum, lemon juice or orange juice along with spinach can aid this absorption. Spinach is high in fibre, but too much of it can cause digestive problems such as bloating, gas and cramping." Spinach for iron and fibre - body+soul

And, cooking greens converts the iron to a form that is more easily absorbed by the body, but beef and liver have much more iron than greens.

Also, did your doctor tell you it's iron-deficiency anemia? There are other causes.
