Steno Foodie: Plant Sources For Iron

Iron is an essential nutrient that can help boost energy. According to, approximately 10% of women between 20 and 49 years of age are iron deficient.

The health source states that iron deficiency can lead to fatigue, both mentally and physically. The website also states that, “Great plant sources of iron include beans, lentils, spinach, and sesame seeds; eating them with vitamin C-rich foods can boost iron absorption.”

Personally, from time to time. I like to have a small meal of spinach for a late afternoon snack. I saute my spinach with coconut oil with minced garlic.

Love, Speed & Accuracy,
