For vegetarians and vegans who have a hard time getting iron into their diet, consider this:
Take an iron skillet and simmer up a tasty tomato sauce. The tomatoes contain Vitamin C, which is acidic, and will thus leach iron from the pan and into the sauce.
FYI: Increasing ones iron is a slow process that often takes months to accomplish.

It ain’t tasty, and it ain’t fun. It’s garlic (Allium sativum)!
Take one small garlic clove. Peel it, cut off the ends, and then pop it in your mouth. Gently crush it with your teeth from time to time. The volatile oils released are very powerful bug killers that will search and destroy the enemies of your oral pharynx (and other places).
May also be used to keep people away when you need some alone time.
