I have always had issues with iron due to a rare type of anemia that I was born with, so I've always had to pay attention!

I add a touch of Blackstrapp Molasses to my breakfast smoothie. It has to be Blackstrap though! I also love lacinto kale (it's a very dark green usually found at health-food grocer's like Whole Foods & Sprouts), red lentils and quinoa.

In addition, I take a supplement. I take a prenatal multivitamin because it has extra iron but not so much that it hurts my stomach. Before, I took the Flinstone's children's multivitamin because it also has iron in a smaller dosage, I would recommend using either to help supplement what you can't consume.

Every day when I track my foods eaten, I find I am at about half of the required iron level. I know organ meats contain the most iron (from what I have read anyway), but come on, I can't eat that stuff .... YUKK -- Can anyone offer some suggestions for foods that contain extra iron and are not full of fat or calories? I have been taking supplements, but even the lowest dosage of iron is too high and of course causes constipation ..... OUCH
Thanks for your suggestions .......... emoticon from emoticon
