1. Leafy greens
Your body cannot make iron. That’s why you need to get it from your food. If you’re an adult, you’ll need 8 to 18 milligrams of iron every day.
Potatoes form an important part of most diets around the world. One advantage of eating potatoes is that they’re packed with iron.
Oats are so tasty, and can easily be added to your diet.
4. Dark chocolate
Chocolate is usually not seen as a food that’s good for your health.
Quinoa has become a popular breakfast meal lately, thanks to the awesome health benefits it has to offer.
6. Prune Juice
Prune juice is commonly used for people who need a laxative effect.
Even if all mushrooms aren’t the same, certain varieties are packed with iron.
8. Tomato paste
When you eat raw tomatoes, you get very little iron. But that’s not the case with dried tomatoes.
Olives are part of a lot of recipes, and they’re even eaten as a side dish or a starter.
10. Beans and peas
Our parents tried very hard to make us eat beans and peas growing up.
11. Pumpkin seeds
They’re loaded with nutrients, and are a super great snack you can munch on when those hunger pangs kick in.
