DAILY HEALTH TIP
Beans, split peas, lentils, soy foods, and peanut butter are great healthy sources of iron. So are dark green veggies such as broccoli, collards, and kale. These foods help you to build red blood cells and muscles, and every one of these foods has plenty of vitamins and minerals in additions to iron.
