{Iron Rich Recipes}

I recently went to the OB to get a blood test done just for a standard check up. I found out that I am currently iron-deficient. The Dr. said just to up my over the counter iron dosage per day. So I talked to my nutritionist right away {Megan McNamee} to see about a supplement. Turns out my prenatal is already very high in iron. So I am just adding an extra dose per day and increasing the iron rich foods that I eat daily as well as the Vitamin C sources that are good for iron absorption. Sooooo if any of you have yummy recipes for steak or other red meat dishes please send them my way!

You're so cute! Turns out, any Mexican recipe with (organic) beef would be great because you will get the iron in the beef AND vitamin C in the tomatoes/salsa/peppers. Try this recipe: http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/beef_bean_chile_verde.html. It also has beans, which are good non-heme sources of iron. We will get you there girly!!
