The Iron Results

by HEAB on June 8, 2010

In continuing with my day of iron-filled eats, I wanted to share my lunch and dinner from yesterday with you.

My breakfast kept me full until early afternoon, and around 1 PM, I ate a big bowl of Total Raisin Bran with a banana and almond milk. I cereal.


A couple of hours later, I ate a protein bar, and around 6 PM, I sat down to dinner with CD. This is the first time I have cooked a substantial evening meal in months, and it was nice to once again dine at the dinner table with my hubby. :)


I slow cooked a brisket all day in the crock-pot and ate it atop a bed of spinach massaged with 1/2 avocado and fresh lime juice. For our brisket topping, I made Bald Eagle Sauce.

Bald Eagle Sauce (recipe based on Fab Hot Dog’s mustard relish recipe)

Combine the following and refrigerate overnight: (I kind of just threw everything into a bowl, and so the following measurements are guesstimates.)

1/2 cup sweet relish
1 cup sauerkraut
1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 TBSP dried oregano
1/2 TBSP whole celery seed
1 to 2 TBSP chili powder
splash apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup yellow mustard

After dinner, I ate a mug of Cinnamon Puffins with almond milk.


According to Fitday, my iron intake was pretty good yesterday, although I know this number is not completely accurate as I didn’t weigh and measure all my food. However, I’m feeling pretty good about getting my iron numbers up without the iron pills. That being said, I do plan on supplementing with Floradix and ordered some yesterday.

I really enjoyed reading about your beloved foods that you used to hate. So, today I’d like to know about an embarrassing favorite food from your past. I’ll start. When I was younger, I used to love pickle juice. After finishing off a jar of pickles, I would stick a straw in the jar and sip on the juice. Ugh, I still love pickles, but I could not imagine drinking the juice nowadays. Hello sodium!
