Beans are a great source of Iron. I would suggest creating some vegan meals based on beans to add to your recipes. Many people have no problem keeping their iron levels at optimum levels on a plant based diet but it has to be a healthy diet full of veggies, fruits, legumes an whole grains. Processed foods are filling but have less nutritive value.

Also as Bilby suggested there are many posts about iron in existing threads.

I'm not vegetarian or vegan. I just don't eat red meat and only eat meat a 2-3 times per week (mostly fish). I read here because I eat a lot of vegetarian cuisine. My question- I've been tracking my iron on the nutrition tracker and realize I really don't get enough at all (which would explain why I'm constantly tired). I'm sure some of you have had this problem...what do you do about it? I eat plenty of iron rich veggies and eggs but I guess the lack of red meat really makes a difference. I don't eat beans on a daily basis either. Any suggestions other than a supplement?
