Hi All - According to my doc, my iron is low. Aside from red meat, what are good sources of iron? I want to avoid any iron pills or supplements. Thanks!

Scroll allllll the way down for a list (meat and non-meat) of high iron foods. Make sure to combine these foods with a vitamin C source to improve absorption.
