Iron, an essential micronutrient in human nutrition, is often discussed at length when talking about the differences between diets. Many argue that iron from animal based foods like red meat is far superior to that in plant-based foods, like beans. In some ways, that’s correct. But there’s more to the story.
In today’s podcast, I deliver a short primer on iron that sort of recaps the What’s The Deal With Iron episode we did almost exactly 2 years ago. I keep it pretty digestible and general, without diving into too much specifics. We recommend you go back and listen to What’s The Deal to get a more in depth look, and take a look at the resources I’ve linked below to learn more. At the very least, eat your lentils and molasses.
