Iron = energy

Iron rich I just discovered information related to iron intake for female athletes.

At least 18mg a day.

I looked up where I could receive iron and counted my daily intake – I came NO where near 18mg. Could this be the reason of recent low energy levels? It is interesting to learn that many people unknowingly suffer low energy from not enough iron in their diet. How could I have not known this before? I’m keen to get my iron levels checked and am practicing for a week ensuring I get 18mg a iron a day to see if it impacts energy … stay tuned, and why not try the experiment yourself?! xK

Btw – this salad ought to be iron rich: spinach, quinoa, grapefruit, avocado, and cashew – it’s also yummy … what iron-rich recipes do you use?
