Getting Your IRON on a Vegan or Plant-Based Diet

Since the iron found in plants isn’t as efficiently absorbed as the iron in animal foods, a lot of us (and our freaker-outer-parents) wonder if we’ll be able to get enough iron on a vegan or plant-based diet.

Fortunately, for most of us eating a WHOLE PLANT FOOD diet, getting plenty of iron is easy and, as research shows, the iron found in plants is actually MUCH healthier for us, anyway!
