Pulses and Sprouts Based Iron Rich Salads

Apart from greens, all beans and pulses like moong, matki, chana, rajma etc. also provide a good dose of iron to overcome anemia. Sprouting them is more advisable as the process of sprouting enhances the nutrient content, including the iron, and also make them easy to digest.

Greens and sprouts are a must to build your iron reserves and build haemoglobin levels.  For dressings, prefer lemon juice based dressings as they abound in vitamin C which helps in the absorption of iron further. 

Nuts and Seeds Based Iron Rich Salads

A tbsp of nuts or seeds can add on iron to a salad very easily. Say for example, a tbsp. of sesame seeds (approx. 10 gm) yields about 1 mg of iron and 1 tbsp of chopped almonds (approx. 15 gm) yields 0.8 mg of iron. Additionally they also add crunch and eye-appeal to the salad. A classic example of adding sesame seeds is Orange Sesame Tabbouleh and walnuts can be added to any combination of fruits and veggies.
