Scrambled, boiled, or sunny-side up, whichever way you cook them; you'll get a healthy dose of iron. Enriched white or wheat bread can add some more, so have a slice of toast on the side.
But if you drink coffee or hot tea with it, you may lose some of the benefit. They keep you from absorbing iron well.
NUTS AND DRIED FRUIT
Make your own trail mix for an iron-rich snack. Start with cashews or pistachios. Add dried fruit like raisins, prunes, dates, or peaches.
Watermelon is more than a refreshing summertime treat. One small slice can give you 3 mg of iron. Five medium figs have the same amount. A banana is good for 1 mg, while an apple has 0.5.
There is some amount of iron when you nibble on dark chocolate. A 3-ounce piece gives you 7 mg.
