Vegetarian Foods with More Iron than Meat!

Dear friends around the world,

I believe in alternative diets that give us the nutrients our bodies need while allowing us to live a healthier and cruelty-free lifestyle. It is a false belief that we can’t get enough protein and other nutrients from a plant-based diet. Some world-renowned athletes are vegetarians, even the Roman gladiators were mostly vegetarian, so we can see that adopting a vegetarian diet does not throw our bodies out of balance.

“If you like steak, meatballs, beef, hamburgers and any other meat …then please remember that none of the animals gave up their bodies because they wanted to. Each animal went through captivity, abuse, beatings, pain, sufferings, fear and murder so some of us can ‘eat’ their bloody flesh. Remember when we eat their flesh we create the causes for others to create the karma of killing them…

So, the next time we are ill, have serious diseases and our bodies hurt, we cannot complain because we indirectly caused the same pain to happen for the flesh of these animals. They experienced terrible pain because of us and that karma will come back to us in the form of pain for our bodies again and again and again…

Each time you eat the flesh of others, expect that same pain to come back to us. Count how many times you ate flesh and expect the same amount of times you will have pain in your body unless it is purified. Never complain about any physical pain or treatment because you were brave enough to eat the flesh of others. Be brave enough to get the pain back. This is not the judgement of condemnation but the universal law of karma. What goes around comes around.”

Please read this article and see for yourself just how many nutrients and vitamins these vegetables can provide our bodies. Meat is never the only option.

14 Vegetarian Foods That Have More Iron than Meat

Whether you’re a lifelong vegetarian or are actively transitioning to a non-meat diet, a common concern is making sure you still consume plenty of iron. According to the National Institutes of Health, the recommended dietary allowances (RDAs) of iron for adults is 8-27 mg per day, with adult men tending toward the lower end, while older women and those who are pregnant or breastfeeding needing more (check out these skin-care products you can safely use while pregnant).

While meat is often at the top of the list of recommended sources of iron, there are plenty of non-meat options that contain the same amount of iron, or more, than meat. So no need to give up on your vegetarian diet and reach for a burger (or a multivitamin)—these 14 foods will easily boost your iron intake.

Spinach

Dark leafy greens, especially spinach, provide a powerhouse of iron. Three cups of spinach contain about 18 mg of iron—that’s more than an 8-ounce steak! You can meet your daily RDA of iron with just one hearty spinach salad. (Give this spinach-avocado caesar salad a try!)

 

Broccoli

Kiattipong (Shutterstock)

Not only is broccoli jam-packed with iron and other key nutrients like vitamin K and magnesium, it’s also high in vitamin C, which helps encourage iron absorption in the body. (And you may be surprised to learn that it’s quite good in smoothies.)

Lentils

Just one cup of lentils has more iron than an 8-ounce steak. Lentils are also a solid source of dietary fiber, potassium, and protein. You can add lentils to your salad, or try soup—make it in bulk, then freeze the leftovers for later.

 

Kale

Three cups of kale contain 3.6 mg of iron. Try this kale salad or this kale and lemon pizza.

 

Bok Choy

Whether you steam or sauté this tasty Chinese cabbage, you’ll be getting a healthy dose of vitamin A, in addition to 1.8 mg of iron per cup.

Baked Potato

One large baked potato contains nearly three times the amount of iron as a 3-ounce serving of chicken. Top it with Greek yogurt (a high-protein substitute for sour cream), steamed broccoli, and a bit of melted cheese for a tasty weeknight dinner.

 

Sesame Seeds

Le Do (Shutterstock)

Just one tablespoon of sesame seeds contains 1.3 mg of iron. And it’s super simple to incorporate them into your diet, too. Sprinkle sesame seeds over a salad for added flavor and crunch or mix them into a dressing, sauce, or salsa before pouring over a dish.

 

Cashews

Lotus Images (Shutterstock)

Nuts of all kinds are well-known protein sources for vegetarians, but cashews have the added benefit of being very rich in iron. One ¼-cup serving contains about 2 grams of iron. Not a fan of their nutty texture? Hide them in a smoothie to get the health benefits without the grit.

 

Soybeans

Jiang Hongyan (Shutterstock)

A single cup of cooked soybeans contains between 8 and 9 mg of iron. These legumes are a great source of protein, too (they’re one of the 20 highest protein vegetarian foods). Just be sure to seek out organic soy products rather than conventional, which may be genetically modified.

Chickpeas

Diana Taliun (Shutterstock)

One cup of chickpeas contains 4.7 mg of iron, more than half the daily RDA for an adult male. Roast them in a bit of olive oil for a crunchy snack, or mix them with tomatoes, feta, and cucumber to create a savory side dish.

 

Dark Chocolate

OLENA KAMINETSKA/SHUTTERSTOCK

The benefits of dark chocolate seem endless. In addition to promoting healthier skin and teeth and reducing anxiety, dark chocolate also offers a sweet way to up your iron intake. One ounce of dark chocolate contains 2 to 3 mg of iron, more iron than in the same amount of beef.

Swiss Chard

Kidney Beans

Kidney beans contain 3-4 mg of iron per cup. Be sure to cook kidney beans to get the best flavor and texture. Kidney beans are the superstars of vegetarian chili, often acting as a hearty base ingredient in favor of meat options. Consider purchasing dried beans in bulk for a budget-friendly option.

    Dried beans and dark green leafy vegetables are especially good sources of iron, even better on a per calorie basis than meat. Iron absorption is increased markedly by eating foods containing vitamin C along with foods containing iron. Vegetarians do not have a higher incidence of iron deficiency than do meat-eaters.

    Iron is an essential nutrient because it is a central part of hemoglobin, which carries oxygen in the blood. Iron deficiency anemia is a worldwide health problem that is especially common in young women and in children.

    Iron is found in food in two forms, heme, and non-heme iron. Heme iron, which makes up 40 percent of the iron in meat, poultry, and fish, is well absorbed. Non-heme iron, 60 percent of the iron in animal tissue and all the iron in plants (fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts) is less well absorbed. Because vegan diets only contain non-heme iron, vegans should be especially aware of foods that are high in iron and techniques that can promote iron absorption. Recommendations for iron for vegetarians (including vegans) may be as much as 1.8 times higher than for non-vegetarians.

    Some might expect that since the vegan diet contains a form of iron that is not that well absorbed, vegans might be prone to developing iron-deficiency anemia. However, surveys of vegans have found that iron deficiency anemia is no more common among vegetarians than among the general population although vegans tend to have lower iron stores.

    The reason for the satisfactory iron status of many vegans may be that commonly eaten foods are high in iron. In fact, if the amount of iron in these foods is expressed as milligrams of iron per 100 calories, many foods are eaten by vegans that are superior to animal-derived foods. For example, you would have to eat more than 1700 calories of sirloin steak to get the same amount of iron as found in 100 calories of spinach.

    Another reason for the satisfactory iron status of vegans is that vegan diets are high in vitamin C. Vitamin C acts to markedly increase absorption of non-heme iron. Adding a vitamin C source to a meal increases non-heme iron absorption up to six-fold which makes the absorption of non-heme iron as good or better than that of heme iron.

    Fortunately, many vegetables, such as broccoli and bok choy, which are high in iron, are also high in vitamin C so that the iron in these foods is very well absorbed. Commonly eaten combinations, such as beans and tomato sauce or stir-fried tofu and broccoli, also result in generous levels of iron absorption.

    Both calcium and tannins (found in tea and coffee) reduce iron absorption. Tea, coffee, and calcium supplements should be used several hours before a meal that is high in iron.

    The few minutes a day we spend on social media creating awareness for animals who cannot speak is purely spiritual and humanistic practice because we are trying to alleviate pain from another sentient beings and that makes us more spiritual, and that makes us more spiritual and more humane.

    Vegetarian is becoming more popular because the people nowadays have more interest in healthy foods. In addition, we will be at the lower risk for obesity, hypertension, heart disease and etc when we choose to get more vegetables instead of meat.
    Therefore, to become a vegetarian is really up to our choice. When we choose to eat less meat, our suffer from sickness will less too.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this informative post.

  10. Pavara Lam on Jun 13, 2017 at 10:06 pm

    It isn’t surprising to know that greens are a healthier alternative to getting nutrients like iron or protein.
    Many of my relatives say that I need to eat more meat to get my and iron, but meat isn’t the only thing that contains iron. Besides research have shown that meats are carcinogens and they also contain a lot of harmful chemicals like mercury together with growth hormones which are harmful to humans.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this informative post on vegetarian foods.

  11. Uncle Eddie on Jun 5, 2017 at 2:01 pm

    It certainly is a “false belief that we cannot get enough protein and other nutrients from a pant-based diet.” Research and science support the fact that going Vegan has a tremendous positive impact on health. As said, whatever the reasons are for not eating meat, whether religious or otherwise, better health and better immunity are undeniable side benefit of going vegetarian! From stipulated scientific fact, scientists have found that blood taken from Vegans is 8 times more effective at killing cancer cells than blood taken from those following a standard american diet. In a series of experiments and subsequent studies have shown, lifestyle changes were said to have a huge effect on long term health and reduce the risk of contracting cancer, and increase the chances of surviving cancer. A plant based diet and regular exercise can really help improve long term quality of life. Having blood that’s more inhospitable to cancer growth is just one major health advantage of the Vegan diet. Going vegan truly has a tremendous long term impact on one’s health as duly proven. If people are to spend efforts preventing the suffering of animals, they would do far better to focus on improving the wretched lot of tens of millions of cows, pigs, dogs and chickens ending up at these annual animals’ Meat Festivals celebrations in China and so many other Asians Nations of the World every year, where billions of animals are brutally tortured, and un-mercilessly killed and butchered each year to be joyously eaten! A great many thanks to Rinpoche for his always caring and sharing ways of compassion! Om Mani Padme Hung.

  12. Liang Jing on Jun 4, 2017 at 9:17 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. We do not need to eat meat to get iron, they are many sources to get iron such as spinach, broccoli, dark chocolate and more! This article is very good because it gives me more options of getting iron.

  13. Stella Cheang on Jun 2, 2017 at 3:51 pm

    Time and again, research results had shown with evidence that plant-base diet is more than sufficient to sustain our dietary needs. And we also have many past and living vegetarians who had lead a healthy life without any signs of malnutrition.

    Yet, these facts remain oblivious to many people for various reasons. People continue to satisfy their taste bud at the expense of another living being. Many of them are the same people who cuddle and hug a furry being like cats or dogs, and even fight for their welfare. Perhaps the connection is lost to many between eating meat and being the cause that indirectly or directly slaughters the animals.

    You see, the meat does not end up on your plate willingly. The animals had to encounter captivity, pain, torture and lastly a gruesome death before ending up on your plate. For every piece of juicy, succulent, meat that gets chowed down the throat, there are repercussions based on cause and effect. The pain we caused on the animals will come back to us.

  14. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Jun 2, 2017 at 1:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the article for us to know more about the plant based food that contains high content of iron. This is my first time knowing that most of the ancient Roman gladiators were vegetarian, which is a valid evidence to prove vegetarian meals can provide sufficient energies for us to go through our daily work and chores without having to kill the animals for food. Most of the vegetables and plant based food are readily available in our market and the list of vegetables can even go longer too.

    Since we are given the options to choose between meats and plant based food to obtain the same nutrient such as iron, it is more wiser and beneficial for us to consume the plant based food and vegetables as these food will not give us any harms or negative effect in both spiritual and secular aspects as the killing of animals are not carried out in the process of obtaining the plant based food. When we become full time vegetarian, we do not need to spend much effort but refraining the action of indirect or direct killing, which can lead us to long life, stable health and less suffering according to the law of cause and effect.

    Thank you Rinpoche once again for the information given to us and I will continue to become a full time vegetarian for my whole life.

    With folded hands,
    kin hoe

  15. Lim Han Nee on Jun 2, 2017 at 6:39 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this article on healthy alternative cruelty-free diets and food that contain all the irons we need,even more than meat sources.Dark green leafy vegetables, legumes, nuts and beans are some of these alternative sources. They can be served in various delicious yummy ways. I love spinach! I love broccoli! I love kale! I love cashew nuts and chickpeas! I love dark chocolates!

    Every time we eat plant-based food, we are refraining from acts of gross cruelty. We are refraining from being party to such cruelty as causing animals to suffer in captivity, beatings,pain, fear and brutal slaughter. Such acts collect heavy negative karma. With karma, what goes out from us comes back to us in the form of diseases of the body that will be racked in pain.

  16. Samfoonheei on Jun 1, 2017 at 12:09 pm

    Well meat is often recommended sources of iron by most doctors .Ever since reading Rinpoche’s blog other posts and this post ,i can say thats not a good idea afterall to comsume meat for iron..The doctors view got to change to suit those vegetarian patients.I had witnessed a case whereby the doctor keep asking a vegan to comsume meat and i glad that patient refused. Meat are definitely not the only source of iron.There are plenty of foods like kidney beans, green vege,dark chocolate,tofu and so forth that contain the same amount of iron.Swiss chard is one vege which i have not seen before and would love to try oneday.I knew most nuts are protein sources ,cashews have the added benefit iron. I love cashew nuts.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this .

  17. Vivian Ong on Jun 1, 2017 at 12:01 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. I didn’t know that these vegetables have so much nutrients to offer to our body. Most of the vegetables shared in this article are my favorite veggies. When you eat more veggies, you will not feel so heavy and bloated compared to when you eat meat.

    with folded palms,
    Vivian

  18. Choong on May 31, 2017 at 11:32 pm

    The science is there, the perceptions and habits must change. The medical community is slowly but surely embracing a low animal protein and high fruits and vegetables diet. Thank you Rinpoche for this information. I’m a definitely a fan of a no-meat diet and have seen health improvements ever since I embraced it three years ago.

  19. Lin Mun on May 31, 2017 at 10:59 pm

    It is very important for us to have a balance diet irregardless if we are vegetarian or not. People always have the perception that vegetarian do not have sufficient minerals and nutrition. However, we are what we eat. So glad to know that they are so many examples of food with high iron. Will try to eat more of this food as I am lack of iron. Thank you Rinpoche for this great info.

  20. Fong on May 31, 2017 at 10:31 pm

    It’s good to know more about vegetables especially some of the vegetables that are not indigenous to Malaysia, like kale, and swiss chards. But, I must say that this is so in line with what my doctor told me years back, that we have to eat colourful vegetables for the variety of nutrients that our body require, and he wasn’t even talking about being vegetarian.

    Knowledge about the food we eat is important so that we can eat a balanced meal. So glad to see that we need not eat meat to get our supply of iron especially for people who are anemic. They may feel that being anemic disqualifies them from becoming vegetarians.

    Thank you for sharing this knowledge with us that we may continue being vegetarians with no qualms at all even if we are anemic.

  21. wan wai meng on May 31, 2017 at 8:56 pm

    Great list of vegetables, for vegetarians it is important to eat well. And to have a well balanced diet. So there is no reason why we cannot give up meat, we just need to learn up with articles such as these, and educate ourselves so we can function optimally.

  22. Jacinta Goh on May 31, 2017 at 1:40 am

    With these varieties of vege, we can get the nutrients which are necessary for our body. Just like what Rinpoche has mentioned, meat is not the only option. Besides, it takes few mins to cook a dish of vege, thanks to the video above. Never knew that can putfew drops of lemon for greater taste.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing.

    P/s: One day should find out what is Swiss Chard. So colourful 🤔

    Chinese activists recently stood up to dog meat traders and rescued 900 dogs bound for slaughter for human consumption. Many of the dogs were clearly stolen family pets, even wearing tags and collars: Huskies, German Shepherds, Poodles and the like, many extremely ill and dying from the slave ship like conditions of the truck and cages. One woman found her lost Golden Retriever on the truck, but was told she could not take him home unless she paid off the trader. The activists were beaten and after a 50 hour standoff finally rescued all of the dogs. However, by that time some dogs had died and the activists were forced to bury them at the scene.

    The ‘Ocean Drover’ is regarded by the live export industry as being one of the ‘best’ vessels on the water. But right now, animals confined within it are suffering and dying.

    After breaking down four weeks ago, just days after leaving Australia, the ship has been travelling at a reduced speed – extending an already long and arduous journey for the 48,000 sheep and cattle on board. On Friday it was revealed that the Ocean Drover had to make an emergency stop near Djibouti, Africa, after running low on feed for the animals, and now the exporter has confirmed the mounting deaths on board – still days from their final destination. One can only imagine what the surviving animals are enduring.

    The exporter has expressed dismay at not achieving their usual ‘success rate’ but this is an industry that judges ‘success’ by the number of animals still standing at the end of a voyage. Sheep suffer and die on every live export ship that leaves Australia and their deaths are considered just a routine part of doing business. The animals onboard the Ocean Drover may be beyond our help. But don’t let their suffering be in vain – your MP needs to hear their story. Please take 2 minutes to call your Federal Member TODAY to express your utter dismay at yet another live export tragedy.

    Hummingbirds are easy to attract to a backyard garden, a cinch to keep well fed, and a joy to watch. These sparkling jewels of sum at mer are easy to love.

    But if you don’t take proper care to provide healthy nectar and clean feeders, they’re also an easy bird to love to death.

    Hummingbird feeders must be kept clean and free from mold and fungus, or the tiny hum-buzzers you so enjoy could develop a serious and deadly fungus infection. This infection causes the tongue to swell, making it impossible for the bird to feed.

    A police officer proved “serve and protect” covers just about anyone—even a dog.

    Officer Karen Spencer-Boyles was patrolling Tuesday when she noticed two dogs in the middle of the road. When she stopped her cruiser, she realized one dog had been hit and killed; the other refused to leave its friend’s side and was frightened.

    “You could tell he was scared. He just looked helpless,” Spencer-Boyles told WTVR. “It’s kind of like if you had a friend and your friend had been hurt. He just stood by his friend.”

    She stayed with the dog at the median until he calmed down, got him to safety, and took him to a local animal shelter. Animal care workers believe the dog has an owner because he is neutered and has a flea collar.

    Nearly 25 years ago, then Boston Herald photographer Curtis Ackerman captured the enclosed image of Boston Police Officer Frank Pomodoro comforting his partner and police horse, Fritz, who had fallen into a sidewalk construction hole that had been covered over by a steel plate just outside the old District D-4 station which, at the time, was located in the area of Berke…ley Street and Warren Ave. Pomodoro was inside the station when someone came running in and told him that his horse had fallen into a hole. When Pomodoro got outside, he immediately feared the worst. A broken leg and he knew that his partner of three years would have to be put down. In fact, according to Pomodoro, the one question he hears more often than any other when people reference the picture of his horse in the hole is whether or not Fritz survived the fall. In response to that question, Pomodoro gratefully offers the following, “He was back to work in three weeks and, luckily, he only suffered a cut to one of his front legs.”

    Reflecting back on that day, Pomodoro says a number of things still stick out and have stayed with him to this day. “The compassion of people on that day is one of the things I’ll never forget. It was really amazing. Perfect strangers and even one guy I had locked up came running over to help Fritz.” Pomodoro says the help provided by perfect strangers was especially evident when the Fire Department arrived on scene and secured a rope around Fritz because there was some concern that the horse might slip or slide deeper into the hole.

    Trekking in Tibet is a good way to explore Tibet.It is really challenging for anyone going to Tibet itself due the high attitude and further going trekking will more challenging.

    For pilgrims they would go circumambulating the holy Mount Kailash as a practice to purify their karma and it will take at least 3 days to round the holy mountains.This article is really informative and thank you very much for sharing with us.

    Thank you for the sharing of the historical site of Buddhism in Indonesia . Very interesting article provide adequate information on the ancient sites. Amazing and fascinated with the Buddhism journey. A great read to know the nation with the largest Muslim population and Buddhist sanctuary in the world.

    Great to know that the oldest religion worshiped the mother nature, with the supernormal power and trully believed in people. Enjoyed the great read of the three oldest Buddhist Kingdom. The Kalingga, the earliest Hindu-Buddhist Kingdom in Central Java, The Medang has become a famous pilgrimage and tourist site of the country, and The Srivijaya the famous of for the practice of Vajrayana Buddhism.

    Hope to visit and to explore the most incredible heritage site of the Buddhist Kingdoms of Indonesia.

    This is heart-warming to see these nice messages for Rinpoche. When Rinpoche announced that he was a Dorje Shugden practitioner, many people posted rude and insulting messages on Rinpoche’s social media accounts.

    It is ok to have a different opinion or different choices in life, we must respect that. It is what the Buddha has taught as well. Many of the insulting comments for Rinpoche were written by so-called Buddhists, this is very disappointing.

    Rinpoche had shown us what patience, compassion and kindness are. He used his whole life to give the Dharma to everyone without wanting anything in return. His teachings are no different from what the Buddha had taught. Even though there are many people who attacked Rinpoche verbally, Rinpoche was not discouraged, he continued to share the Dharma with us.

    Beautiful pictures of H.E Zava Damdin Rinpoche, an erudite Mongolian Buddhist master conferring the initiation of Yamantaka and Dorje Shugden to a crowd of 10,000 people. He was recognised as the reincarnation of one of the greatest Buddhist masters, yogis, healers, scholars and mahasiddhas in Mongolia. A great scholar within the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, he wrote numerous volumes of philosophic writings which are still been used till today. Interesting read of a GREAT Lama.
    Thank you for this sharing

    Well I do enjoy watching scary and haunting videos even when told its scary. Out of curiosity I enjoy watching ghostly encounters and supernatural happenings. Good or bad, all of these videos have a paranormal . From haunted houses, paranormal possessions, to hilarious horror spoofs, while other good supernatural horror videos are about demons and devils. Many of the best supernatural horror movies or videos have produced sequels and spin-offs. Anyway I do believe unseen beings, ghost do exist due to their previous karma . All these stories whether its real life stories or just movies tells us the truth of suffering.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
