Are You Getting The Right Nutrient Combos? Iron and Vitamin C

Are You Getting The Right Nutrient Combos? Iron and Vitamin C

Iron and Vitamin C are 2 of the most important nutrients you can provide to your body. Did you know that they absorb better in combination with one another? It’s great to get as many vitamins and minerals in as possible but you also want to make sure you are actually getting the benefits from them as well.

 

Food Sources of Vitamin C:

Oranges, grapefruit, bell peppers, broccoli, strawberries, cantaloupe, brussel sprouts, and pineapple.

Food Sources of Iron:

Meats like chicken, turkey, steak. Also Eggs, beans, legumes, chickpeas, lentils, quinoa, spinach and swiss chard.

Bonus tip:

Calcium can actually reduce the amount of iron that is absorbed so save your milk, cheese or yogurt for other meals!

How to Make the Perfect Meal 🙂

Next meal grill up some chicken with bell peppers and broccoli. Or try a strawberry and spinach salad!
