Good veggie sources of iron

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

My mind is blanking right now!  What are some good veggie food sources of iron?

Soybeans! Lentils, cooked spinach, tofu and tempeh, chickpeas and cereals!

Remember that it's good to eat a source of vitamin C with your iron to help absorption - like orange juice with your tofu scramble, or a sliced tomato with your spinach.

Vegans are basically saying, "Hey, animals shouldn't be needlessly harmed." It's amazing how many people that sentiment freaks out. - Vegan.com

We have already had discussion on bivalves of the sea on here, and why vegetarians do not eat them. They are included as animals. Why eat bivalves when there are plenty of plentiful plant iron sources?  Tofu, lentils, chick peas, tempeh?

 

One again "real" vegetarians, know that sea life are animals and do not eat them. Would I be wrong to assume that you probably do?
