An Iron Update

by HEAB on June 25, 2010

Yesterday, I met up with my friend Kristin for a little Baja Burrito action.


Yeah, give it up for pregnancy boobies! 😉

I ordered a steak salad and piled it high with veggies, cilantro, tomatillo salsa, tortilla chips, and some guac. Instead of salad dressing, I always ask for a big tub of pico on the side. LOVE fresh pico!


I think there was some steak in there…somewhere.

A month or so ago, my doctor informed me that I was anemic, which totally made sense since I kept getting horrible headaches and felt dizzy all the time. I decided to skip out on the recommended iron pills due to the side effects and took matters into my own hands. I’ve been eating more red meat, fortified cereal, and I’m taking Floradix twice a day. I am no longer dizzy, and I can’t tell you the last time I had a headache. I’m going to get a blood test to check my iron levels in about a week, and I’m anxious to see if my numbers have returned to an acceptable level. All I know is that I feel so much better. So, here’s to more steak and Total Raisin Bran!

Happy Friday to you all. I’ve been up since 3 AM, and I was contemplating an early morning yoga class. However, CD and I are going out tonight with some friends, and I think I should try and get some more sleep. Time for the eye mask. :)

What is your favorite build a burrito/salad type restaurant? As much as I love a good Chipotle fix, the place to go in Nashville is definitely Baja Burrito. My fellow Nashvillians, would you agree?
