Fruits and veggies that are high in iron

We didn’t forget about vegetarians in compiling high-iron foods. In fact, vegetarians need to be particularly aware of their iron levels, as studies have found that iron deficiency is prevalent in this group. Meanwhile, getting iron on a vegetarian diet shouldn’t prove too difficult. One cup of tofu offers nearly your entire daily needs for iron. Spinach lovers might appreciate that 3.5 ounces of the raw stuff offers 15 percent of your daily iron needs. You can even meet your iron needs while satisfying a sweet tooth, as one cup of dried apricots offers 3.5mg of iron. If you need a quick, protein-heavy snack, a few ounces of cashews will give you nearly 6 mg of iron.
