Iron Strength Salad

Oh dear. I missed Music Monday.

Here's a tune.

Now it's salad time! SUPER salad. 4 ingredients. Within this bowl of delight you'll find:

  • 140% of your daily Vitamin C 
  • 60% your Iron
  • All sorts of flavor
  • A special bonus: Eating Vitamin C WITH Iron makes it much easier for your body to digest. It's always good to try and eat them together. 
  • Another special bonus: This salad is very affordable. A can of chickpeas is often less than $1.00. Sprouts are super-duper cheap if you grow them yourself (less than 20 cents). And the coleslaw is $1.50-$2.00 per bag. 


  • 1/2 bag of coleslaw
  • 1/2 cup of sprouts (I used lentil sprouts and I steamed them for 5 minutes.)
  • 1/2 can of chickpeas (Be sure to rinse and drain them after you open the can.)
  • Trader Joe's Asian-Style Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette 
  • Find a cute bowl. 
  • Mix it all together.
  • Eat it up!
  • This is also a great salad to take to work.
