Flax seed has a lot of iron in it, and so does spinach. I doubt they will get your iron up to where it needs to be, but it's a great way to supplement your diet.
Every morning I make a smoothie:
fresh baby spinach (or any other veggie)
ground flax seed
Organic plain yogurt
xylotol (natural sweetener - much better than sugar)
You'll never know there's spinach in it, and it's delicious, especially on a warm summer day. And it's full of iron, fiber, and antioxidants.
P.S. I'd love other smoothie suggestions. My favorite is blueberries and watermelon when the watermelons are in season)
