LENTIL + QUINOA TACOS ✨ Did you know that we can increase non-heme (plant-based) iron absorption by pairing sources of plant-based iron with vitamin C?? ? This is one of my favourite tips to share with clients, as it can be a pretty easy adjustment- pairing lentils with bell peppers, black beans with lemon or lime juice, kale with strawberries in a salad or smoothie- can all increase our absorption of plant-based iron! ✨ These tacos came together in less than 15 minutes and were packed full of plant-based iron from the lentils, quinoa + pumpkin seeds, with the bell peppers and cabbage adding that vitamin C! ??.
