Organic Produce Co-op

My friend organized a organic produce co-op earlier this year and it has been great for our family. I do go a little overboard sometimes, like a kid in a candy store. I placed my order this week and picked up my goodies this morning.

12 Avocados

6lbs Cucumbers

5lbs Zucchini

25 Gala Apples

4.5lbs Red Grapes

3lbs Strawberries

5lbs Bananas

5 bunches of Broccoli

5 Red Rudy Grapefruit

3lbs Green Grapes

10 Pears

1lb Spinach

1lb Spring Mix

The Lab results are in.....

My blood work results came back this week. My hemoglobin went from 7.2 to 9.2 with 2 iron infusions. I have had two more infusions and will be re-checked later this month. This is still low but heading in the right direction!
I believe with more leafy greens and some other iron rich foods this will continue to go up. I have had several people recommend liquid Floradix Iron for maintaining my healthy iron levels. I hope it works for me, because I really want to stop the mega strength iron pills I am on and give my digestive system a break!
