I can also warmth recomend Raisins, ive been eating those every morning together with my crushed oats and milk for breakfast. After i started eating raisins i got less "minor" blackouts alike when you stand to fast after have been laying down. And i have been more fresh in my mind during my "periods".

Well i guess the positive thing about raisins is that they can also act a bit like candy. Roughly a handful each day should do the trick. My main issue back then was that my blood percentage was to low. It is suppoesed to be between 8-10 for women and mine was 7. So they wouldnt accept me as a blood donor...

If my memory services me correct, broccoli, beets and any other red veggies have more iron than other varieties! Red meat has some iron but not too much. I am thinking that there are some other veggies high in iron but I don't recall...

I am pretty sure that brocolli has a lot of iron, and it is easy to make, you can steam it. Just don't steam it water, because it will lose it's nutritonal value. There are also a lot of things that are fortified with iron. You just have to read the labels. You can also get an iron suplement. Walmart has a huge supplement section by their pharmacy. It will probably be about 10 to 15 dollars, but will help u build up the iron you need.

Spinach and other sources of vegetables can be good sources of iron. You can also use supplements if you don't mind that. Hope this helps!

I understand onion and fresh milk are a good source of iron. Also if fresh pumpkin leaves are available where you live, those are very good. In my country they are usually recommended for pregnant women since they need alot of iron.
