    Iron Rich Foods???

    What are some iron rich foods that aren't very hard on the stomach? On top of not having enough iron I also have a hard time digesting..any ideas? Thanks.

    Baked potatos with the skin clean thoroughly. The skin is a high source of iron. But, without the butter and sour cream. The fats and dairy will block the iron. Spinach has some iron but it has to be mixed with other nutrients to bring it out. Eggs have some iron. Believe it or not chicken is a good source of iron. If you are a vegetarian though just remember that a lot of your dark leafy vegetables have iron in them but you have to eat something with vitamin C in it in order to help get the iron to benefit you. Don't combine the iron rich food with a calcium product in the same meal or you will block the iron absorption.
