If you’re suffering from IDA, there are lots of foods that are iron-rich and easily absorbed.

The iron from meat sources is the best-absorbed form. The iron you get from a small serving of beef, for one, is the just the same amount of iron you get from a big serving of spinach.

As to nutrients, Vitamin C helps boost the potency of the iron by enhancing its absorption. So eating high-iron food like a glass of orange juice increase the amount iron the body can use.

Here are iron-rich foods:

1.       All types of liver

2.       Beef

3.       Spinach

4.       Oyster

5.       Sardines

6.       Turkey

7.       Chicken

8.       Cod

9.       Iron-fortified breakfast cereals

10.   Soybeans

11.   Lentils

12.   Turnip greens

13.   Baked-potato skin

Here’s a healthy pasta treat from Chef Gene Gonzales. You don’t only get to enjoy eating it, but you also get to have lots of iron!

FETTUCCINE WITH SPINACH, BUTTER AND CREAM

 Ingredients:

1 cup + 2 tbsps fresh spinach, trimmed, washed and dried

4 tbsps butter

½ tsp salt

½ tsp black pepper, freshly ground

1 cup heavy cream (light cream or half-and-half)

½ k fettuccine (or linguine)

1 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly shaved

Procedure:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

Meanwhile, chop the spinach coarsely. Over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet which can be covered. Add the spinach and some salt and pepper.

Cover and reduce heat, cook stirring occasionally, until the spinach is very tender, about 10 minutes. Uncover, add half the cream and cook gently for 5 minutes more.

Add salt to the boiling water and cook the pasta al dente. When almost done, put the remaining butter in a large warm bowl and add 2 tablespoons of the cooking water. Drain the pasta and toss with the butter and half of the Parmesan.

Add the spinach sauce and serve, passing the remaining Parmesan at the table.
