Janellas Iron Week: Where to get your iron on a plant-based diet?

Where to get you iron on a plant-based diet? Check out these levels below. It’s not about trying to get your daily intake of iron in one hit, from one meal. Just be mindful of eating these foods regularly, and keeping an eye on your levels to ensure your gut is absorbing enough. (I add powdered Dulse to almost everything I eat. You don’t notice it’s there.)

Leaky Gut (Intestinal Permeability) and other gut issues can interfere with iron absorption.

Dulse, (sea vegetable) 50 mg
Spirulina 28.5mg
Clam, mussels, oysters 28mg
Liver 23mg
