So I will take time to write blog posts over the next months getting as much information as I can to you on obtaining enough iron.  I started to write some information about the different types of iron and gave myself a headache so for this blog post I...

Cauliflower Salsa

  • 28 October 2013

This week’s recipe is up there as one of my favourite salads. For me I find cooked cauliflower difficult to digest but raw cauliflower feels great in my system. Packed with vitamin C and containing a good source of vitamin K it works well with vegetables rich in iron increasing the chance of the body absorbing the iron.
