Iron Rich Breakfast Veg Recipes

Why Iron is Important for Breakfast

Iron is an important nutrient for our body and for our healthIron (haeme) works with protein (globin) to make “haemoglobin’ in red blood cells. The haemoglobin carries oxygen to all parts of the body so it can perform its normal functions. Iron is also a part of ‘myoglobin’, a protein that helps muscle cells store oxygen.

Without enough iron, the body’s fuel cannot be properly synthesized. Thus it’s easy to notice why iron is so vital for life and especially for breakfast which is the first day of meal after around 8 hours of fast.

Quick Iron Rich Breakfast

Early morning is a busy time in every household… Kids are leaving for school and adults are leaving for work. The kitchen too is super busy with cooking two meals most times - breakfast and meals for takeaways in dabbas.

Planning far too much and elaborate breakfast thus becomes a tiresome job. So here are some breakfast ideas which are quick to make and will help you energize for the day by topping up on iron.

Iron Rich Drinks for Breakfast

The top most iron rich drink which you should devour daily is Halim Water.

A glass of Halim Water makes up for 20% of day’s requirement for iron. What more can you ask for? Try this Halim Water daily for 2 months and check your iron levels. It is bound to shoot up.

Well there are some fruits which you can rely on to provide some iron too. These include watermelon and pineapple. Make up for 1 serving of fruit in the breakfast by way of Watermelon and Guava Juice and Pineapple Sweet lime Drink. Each of these iron rich fruits have been paired with a vitamin C rich fruit, as this key vitamin helps in iron absorption. A wise resolution would be to add a tbsp. of soaked halim seeds to any juice you whip up (as done in Pineapple Sweet lime Drink)… so this boosts the iron content further. 

Satiating Iron Rich Breakfast Ideas

Iron Rich Steel Cut Oats for Breakfast

Yes you heard it right… Steel cut oats are a good source of iron. They serve the purpose of breakfast very well. They are not pre-cooked like the rolled oats and hence they take time to cook. You need to master cooking them and then you are set for a healthy breakfast. Learn How to Cook and Store Steel Cut Oats for 5 days.

These steel cut oats have been cooked in water. Remember to avoid pairing it with milk, as it abounds in calcium which hinders iron absorption. As a substitute to milk you can use Almond Milk and try making Steel Cut Oats with Strawberries and Almond Milk.
