A Better Menu: Iron


Get enough iron daily, deliciously and easily.
Popeye’s solution for enough iron is spinach, spinach, and more spinach! Thankfully, there’s this Better Iron Menu to help you get the iron your body needs to run better, deliciously. Not every body needs the same amount of iron daily, and too much iron is a health issue, so make sure to also do the Better Iron Evaluation.



How do I use the better nutrition iron menu?
Sure, you can follow the menu exactly? But what if that is not delicious or doable? No problem. Use the iron menu as a guide. Review each day to see how much iron each better nutrition pit stop delivers.
How much iron does each recipe provide?
For recipes that make more than one serving, we did the math for you so the “total” number is for one serving.
Are there any foods I should eat or avoid to improve my iron absorption?
Vitamin C helps aid the absorption of iron. A healthy digestive system is also important for any nutrient to get where it needs to go. While many iron supplements can trigger constipation, it us unlikely that food sources will create an issue. Consuming supplemental calcium at the same time as iron can make it harder for iron absorption so take your supplements at a different time.
