  • Benefits of iron. Iron helps carry oxygen to different parts of your body. There are 2 types of iron: heme iron from animal foods and non-heme iron from plant foods. These include soy and soy beverages, textured vegetable protein and veggie burgers, dried beans, peas and lentils.  
  • Pair together. Iron from plants is harder for your body to absorb, but eating foods high in vitamin C at the same time helps with absorption. Have plant based iron sources such as edamame with foods high in vitamin C like watermelon to help absorb the iron.
