    Dark leafy greens. If you listen to http://www.compassionatecook.com/publications/vegetarian-food-for-thought-podcast she is very knowledgeable and goes in depth about a lot of issues, such as iron. You do not have to take a supplement but if it’s really that bad after eating iron-rich foods and getting your blood work done afterwards, it’s a last defense option.

    The human body is a wonderful machine at regeneration; try out all these tips to help your iron levels without resorting to pills and see how it goes.

    Hey @slammy,

    It’s great that you’ve decided to go vegetarian! :) Iron-rich foods include beans, black-eyed peas, lentils, chickpeas, oatmeal, dried fruits, nuts, sunflower seeds, nutritional yeast, molasses, and grains such as quinoa and millet. Be sure to check out our vegan guide to good nutrition here: http://www.peta2.com/blog/a-vegans-guide-to-good-nutrition/ :)

    E-mail us at peta2@peta2.com if you have any questions!
