Re: Low iron what to do
karrieperry you and I both post about grain avoidance. But because I need this to not consume our lives, and shopping every few days for grass fed beef or chicken livers and then cooking them may drive me over the edge, I'm thinking about soaked oats with a little unsulphered blackstrap molasses. I also bought organic beets. While not the highest in iron they have vitamin c which will improve the iron absorption. She gets spinach, I'm starting egg yolk (which she had rejected but now likes). I have other items on the,list but beyond meat, that soaked oat combo with the molasses looks like it'll pack a punch. If I got a puréed fruit with vit c in there I could be getting a lot of bang for the buck and it's easy for husband and nanny. I will not give her any legumes. We are paleo and are not fans of the legume family due to processing and impact on g-tract.
