Eight Guidelines for a healthy diet by Flourish Organics Diet & Nutrition

Iron

Iron is needed to keep the haemoglobin in blood to a healthy level. The best sources of iron in the diet are foods such as red meat and liver, but for vegetarians iron can be absorbed from beans and other pulses and from vegetables and cereals. Iron is absorbed better if you eat food containing Vitamin C at the same time (salad, tomatoes, fruit juice). Drinking tea with meals can inhibit the absorption of iron.
