Get into iron-rich foods to boost your energy levels!

Feeling tired, sluggish or low on energy? You might be lacking in iron.

NZ Pork have provided a details on their website on how to deal with this

Iron is an essential nutrient crucial to good health. If you are deficient in iron, you may feel tired, get sick more easily, and find it harder to concentrate. That’s why it’s important to ensure you enjoy plenty of iron-rich foods

You may have already heard of haem iron and non-haem iron. Put simply, haem iron is found in animal foods such as meat and fish and is easily absorbed, while non-haem iron is found in plant foods such as spinach, lentils, beans and chickpeas, and is less easily absorbed.

Did you know, adding foods rich in Vitamin C (such as fruit and vegetables*) to your meal can help boost the absorption of iron from both the meat and the plant foods? Adding vegetables to any plate helps to make it a well-balanced meal.

Your iron rich meal equation:

Meat/seafood/chicken + iron-rich plant foods + Vitamin C rich fruit or vegetables = a great meal for well absorbed iron!

Fresh New Zealand pork provides a source of iron and typically the cuts of pork highest in iron are scotch fillet and fillet steak. These are versatile cuts and can be used in stir fries, on the barbecue, pan fried or roasted. To help inspire you to create iron rich recipes with New Zealand pork, here's some nutritious side dishes that will complement the pork on your fork perfectly!
