high iron meals for Hashimoto's

maxie | Sep 13, 2012 04:27 PM

I have Hashimoto's, exercise quite a bit, and can't seem to get enough iron.  I am gluten intolerant, allergic to shellfish, and rarely consume dairy. I'm looking for some ideas on lunches and dinners that emphasize iron and iron enhancers (Vit C) and avoid iron suckers (like nuts).   Thus far I've had things like seared sirloin on a bed of greens, roasted beets and oranges with an orange vinaigrette; salmon with lentils, sautéed spinach and grapefruit; chicken and broccolini doused in lemon garlic sauce -- basically an animal protein on leafy greens or cooked cruciferous vegetables plus lots of kale and raisins with citrus juice. I'm already supplementing with Floridex Florivital, so that area is covered -- just looking to shake up the menu a bit.  Thanks so much for your suggestions.
