ISO Iron Rich Foods

When I went to the doctor last week, my iron was very low & she put me on iron pills. Well, I can't take them because they make me sick. I know that liver & dark leafy greens, such as kale, spinich, & broccoli, are rich in iron. What are some other iron rich foods?

Thanks middie! When I take them they mess up my tummy. I'll have to check out black beans, I never thought about those.

I have heard that in order to get the benefit from spinach, it needs to be cooked. Raw won't do much for you. This is just what I have heard though. I am not sure how true it is.

I've heard that too GB. The only ways I like cooked spinich is if it's creamed, made into a dip, or added to meatballs. Hmmm...I need to make more meatballs anyway!

I became anemic way back in the 80s. I hated taking those iron pills, so the doc said to keep eating lots of red meat and potatoes, along with the dark green leafies, etc...
woo hoo!
(Now I have a reason for being such a carnivore!)
