    This is just what I’ve been looking for! What are your thoughts on turmeric blocking iron absorption? I drink golden milk and use it in my food for joint pain but I’m wondering if I should eliminate it.

      I take a lot of turmeric and have no problem with this. Just recently had iron and iron stores checked. Always check with your doctor tho

    Was this reuploaded? 😊

    I appreciate this so much! I don’t eat much food at all. I’m balancing my want of gaining weight with wanting to be healrhy. I find that it’s easy to go for unhealthy options so this really helps!

    Hi 🙂 You did the upload 2x. Great video! Thanks a lot!

    Thanks for this video, it’s reassuring to me as a fellow long term vegan that has some nutrition anxiety. Would you consider doing one of these videos for choline?

  6. @richyakuoko2360 on May 17, 2024 at 10:32 pm

    Thanks so much for this video. I have low iron and have sickle cell. Keep up the great work.

    If you eat a varied WFPB diet, it’s really easy to get enough iron and other nutrients.

    Thanks for being real 😊

    This video was so inspiring! I’m vegan, and I thought I needed fortified breakfast cereal to get enough iron, but after watching your video I put my typical day of eating into Cronometer, and I’m doing way better than I thought. Need to eat more lentils though!

  10. @sunnygirl5467 on May 18, 2024 at 1:56 am

    Commenting again since you reuploaded, but you are a ray of sunshine and I really liked this type of video☺️ maybe do one for calcium?🥰🫶

    Thank you.

    Can you do a video on foods to help me with my fast food addiction 😂

    I’ve been vegan for over 28 years. The only thing I am deficient in is iron. I’ve had iron deficiency anaemia before I was vegan and that is the only supplement I take ( vit D3 too as I live in Canada). Protein was very easy to incorporate but no matter how much iron I consume it was never enough without supplementation. I’m hoping when that beautiful moon cycle women are cursed with goes away that I will not need the supplementation 😂 I eat Kasha which is Eastern European and high in iron or I also eat baby cereal as it is even higher and I consume it for breakfast that one week every month… 😆. There is a legume that is higher in iron than lentils. The French use it in their signature cassoulet dishes. Not sure if it is easy to find in the States. I live in Quebec and you can find it here easily but they are the most expensive legumes. One tiny bag is well over 20$. It is imported from France.

      Have u tried Blackstrap molasses with lemon daily?

    • @dolcemaddalena on May 18, 2024 at 12:45 pm

      @@YodiJohsonna No actually. I do use molasses and at times crave ginger molasses cookies for a sweet treat and I use it sometimes as a substitute for maple syrup. I know molasses is high in iron too. Do you mix it with hot water and lemon? How much do you put it for each glass?

    • @YodiJohsonna on May 18, 2024 at 2:21 pm

      @dolcemaddalena  yes! It’s said to be a great way to raise iron levels! You just take 8-16oz of warm water and 1 tbsp of black strap molasses and then add the juice of half or 1 lemon…mix and drink. You can do this up to 2x per day. The lemon helps boost the uptake of the iron in the molasses so it’s something you want to add each time.

    Great video!

    • @SweetPotatoSoul on May 18, 2024 at 12:57 pm

      Thanks for watching!!

  15. @Pal3sa on May 18, 2024 at 10:27 am

    I was diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia years before I was vegan so this is good to see. It always helps to get more options. I’m on supplements already but every little bit helps.

    • @SweetPotatoSoul on May 18, 2024 at 12:56 pm

      Great! And of course these meals are great regardless of their iron content. So many other health benefits

  16. @evilbunnyzombie on May 18, 2024 at 3:01 pm

    Loved the tips. Been thinking of trying teft

  17. @j-n-y on May 18, 2024 at 5:21 pm

    1 cup of oats DOES NOT contain 13mg of iron. It contains 3.4mg. Just look at Cronometer!
