Tasty Tireless Twosomes - Dietary Secrets
Everyone knows the importance of iron in the body. But did you also realize that there 2 types? Heme - found in meats and seafood: nonheme in dark green leafy veggies and chickpeas. The issue of concern is nonheme is not easily absorbed by the body - hence the importance of Vitamin C (found in foods like bell peppers, citrus and strawberries) because they raise the pH level in the intestine allowing the nonheme to absorb readily.
Squeeze a bit of lemon on spinach and strawberry salad. Avoid whole grains and dairy products while enjoying a meal of iron and vitamin C.
