http://www.worldmarket.com/product/wang-derm-thai-iced-tea.do Single 15cal serving of thai tea has 25% DRV! (Doesn't include creamer.)Totally new discovery.

I'm always looking. Another thing I do is if I'm low on iron and protein at the end of the day, I have egg whites with thyme, which is high in iron.

Breakfast cereal - check the nutrition panel and choose the tastiest among those that offer iron.

Ranked in order of highest in iron:
Mollusks (Clams, Mussels, Oysters)
Squash and Pumpkin Seeds
Nuts (Cashew, Pine, Hazelnut, Peanut, Almond)
Beans and Pulses (White Beans, Lentils)
Whole Grains, Fortified Cereals, and Bran
Dark Leafy Greens (Spinach, Swiss Chard)
Dark Chocolate and Cocoa Powder
Tofu
Dried Herbs (Thyme, Parsley, Spearmint, Black Pepper, Marjoram)
Sun-Dried Tomatoes

And some quick general information:
Consuming vitamin C together with iron-containing meals can increase or optimize iron absorption.
Calcium can interfere with non-heme iron absorption. Iron is better absorbed from heme (meat) sources, non-heme (plant) iron is better regulated causing less damage to the body.
Iron in animal foods appears to be very resilient to different methods of cooking.
In contrast, the iron in plant foods is much more likely to be pulled out in the processing or cooking of foods.

I'm a pescetarian and always have great iron levels. You don't have to eat liver.

So I have not been able to take iron supplements since I was young. Which means I have to get the iron only from food. I don't like liver. So was just wondering what can I eat that will give me the most iron.

Thank you
