Iron deficiency can be a problem, since this essential mineral helps your cells generate energy. This can be particularly problematic if your diet is primarily vegetarian, since we don’t absorb as much iron from plant foods as from meat. To combat this deficiency, strive to combine something with vitamin C with plant-based iron, which increases the absorption rate six-fold. Examples of this would include topping black bean tacos with red cabbage slaw or sautéing your spinach with bell peppers, or pairing dark chocolate (which is rich in iron) with strawberries.
