iron loading

I has done it. Spinach and other leafy dark greens will give you fibre and vit c and a bit more iron, too -- orange juice too acid for me, actual oranges (tiny tangerines if you can get them) are better, or even moreso blueberries.

I also feel compelled to plug Cafe Nour's Shawarma -- massive plate of iron loading, put some tabbouleh on the side for the vitamin c, wash it all down with some stomach-kind mint tea

Re: iron loading

P.S. Cereal is still fine, just don't take it at the same time as the iron

Re: iron loading

Mmmm, Cafe Nour. Any excuse. :-)

Mint tea, bizarrely, seems to give me really bad wind, even though everybody keeps telling me it will fix the wind. Sometimes I wonder if bits of my digestive system just got put in the wrong way round. :-/

Re: iron loading

I think they do ginger tea, too -- might suit your stomach better? I'm quite fond of that (basically just fresh ginger grated into hot water -- although you can faff with lemon and other spices if you want) and that's supposed to be a stomach settler, too

Re: iron loading

Unfortunately the taste of ginger is now so firmly associated with morning sickness for me that I'm not sure I'll ever be able to enjoy it again. :-{ I used to love peppermint-and-ginger tea, too (peppermint leaves, chunk of ginger, hot water, mmm).

Bah, sorry for whinging. I hate being whiny & fussy about food. I really really want to be able to go back to being able to eat/drink anything and everything.

aw that's bad

I think that you have carte blanche to whinge about food at the moment, what with having to deal with an extra immune system, etc.

On another note, this weekend for drilling and career discussion (so wild our lives) sounds good, what day is better?

Re: aw that's bad

I think either day is OK with us (Saturday evening is busy, but presumably for you too, for the same reason!) -- when's best for you?

Re: iron loading

I just went to Café Nour today - they have a lovely lemon & honey tea, but I didn't spot any ginger one on the menu.

Ah, you've probably got a positive earth body. This can be fixed by applying a current briefly across your dynamo.
