High Iron Green Foods for Vegans and Vegetarians

Iron is an important component to a vegan and vegetarian lifestyle. It’s important to make sure you know which greens have the highest amount of iron in them. Iron helps with blood flow and provides you with a sufficient amount of energy; however, if you don’t get enough you can become anemic or lethargic throughout the day. A well balanced lifestyle is the key to longevity. We all have busy schedules, but it’s important to be conscious about what you’re putting into your body.

Here’s a list of high iron green foods. Spinach, swiss chard, seaweed, pak choi, asparagus, arugula, and Kale are the top contenders with the highest amount of iron in each serving. With the right amount of proteins, carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables, we can ensure that we are getting the daily requirements for our bodies.

Coconut Greens is a way to make sure you get the extra greens in your diet. One single scoop contains 8-10 servings of greens. You get your essential vitamins and blended veggies in a powder form, which you can easily throw in your smoothie or water. It contains kale, apple, wheatgrass, spirulina, alfalfa herb, spinach, broccoli, and other supergreens. You can stay energized throughout your day with all of the essential minerals and vitamins.
