If you do not eat meat or if you want to give up eating meat altogether, it is likely that the first thing that comes to mind is how you will get the iron your body needs. However, it is a big mistake to think that iron is only taken from meat. Because there are also iron in many bitter foods. But of course meat in meat and meat in our bodies is both much faster and much more easily absorbed. The iron in the vegetable food is not easily absorbed. Only about 2 percent of the iron in plant foods is in the range of 20 to 20 percent, exceeding our digestive system and passing through our blood. But this ratio travels around 15 to 35 percent for the iron in animal greens. You may have been uneasy about giving up meat after you have received this information. Of course this decision is up to you, but it is also possible to make sure that the iron in the vegetable food is absorbed much more in our body.
That’s why you may need to make new and special nutrition plans for yourself. In fact, we prepared a very nice and quite delicious combinations for you to make use of herbs in the vegetable garden. But of course you are not just eating vegetables and fruits in these combinations. You can prepare delicious meals by mixing vegetables or fruit with plenty of iron in one piece and vegetables or fruit with plenty of vitamin C in one piece.
All you need to do is to consume the food that contains the vitamin C in it, along with the food consumption in the iron. If it is hard to adjust the food like this, you can at least drink orange juice as a drink. So you will automatically receive vitamin C. In this way you can also place the iron in the shape you like.
