    That's interesting, I didn't know that. I was reading that prune juice is a good source of iron which I might drink appose to taking iron supplements from vitamin pills.

    I use organ meat myself. Or spinach for heme iron if you're a vegetarian. Cast iron skillets also.

    Cooking with cast iron is one way to get more iron for sure.

    Also you can buy an iron fish you can place in a pot that will add iron to your meal as well.

    Eat insects, problems solved, fluffy snowflake brigade gets to not eat mammals and you cannot complain about environmental concerns regarding insect farming.

    The rest of us can supplement our mammal consumption, so we don't have to eat as much of it.

    If you get some vitamin C with the iron that greatly increases the absorption of it.

    ''Iron is found in food in two forms, heme and non-heme iron. Heme iron, which makes up 40 percent of the iron in meat, poultry, and fish, is well absorbed. Non-heme iron, 60 percent of the iron in animal tissue and all the iron in plants (fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts) is less well absorbed. Because vegan diets only contain non-heme iron, vegans should be especially aware of foods that are high in iron and techniques that can promote iron absorption. Recommendations for iron for vegetarians (including vegans) may be as much as 1.8 times higher than for non-vegetarians 1.

    Some might expect that since the vegan diet contains a form of iron that is not that well absorbed, vegans might be prone to developing iron deficiency anemia. However, surveys of vegans (2,3) have found that iron deficiency anemia is no more common among vegetarians than among the general population although vegans tend to have lower iron stores 3.

    The reason for the satisfactory iron status of many vegans may be that commonly eaten foods are high in iron, as Table 1 shows. In fact, if the amount of iron in these foods is expressed as milligrams of iron per 100 calories, many foods eaten by vegans are superior to animal-derived foods. This concept is illustrated in Table 2. For example, you would have to eat more than 1700 calories of sirloin steak to get the same amount of iron as found in 100 calories of spinach.

    Another reason for the satisfactory iron status of vegans is that vegan diets are high in vitamin C. Vitamin C acts to markedly increase absorption of non-heme iron. Adding a vitamin C source to a meal increases non-heme iron absorption up to six-fold which makes the absorption of non-heme iron as good or better than that of heme iron 4.

    Vegetarian is cheaper and easier for protein.

    I'd recommend a lacto ovo pescatarian diet.

    Fish, eggs, dairy, veggies, and fruit.

    Protein, fat, with monitored carbs.
