I don’t know if you eat shrimp,but this video recipe for Blackstrap Molasses Shrimp(I suppose you can also make the dish with a substitute for shrimp or as a vegetable stir-fry?) is an Iron bomb dish,especially if you substitute the brown sugar for raw cane sugar…then you’ll get iron from molasses,cane sugar and shrimp and the onion&other veggies contain vitamin C aiding in the absorption of iron.:)

As I mentioned earlier,dried fruits such as dates,raisins,prunes,apricots are also supposed to contain quite some iron. On the site of Peatarian someone posted a recipe to make fruitbars,to grab when you’re on the run, with dried fruits and the OJ in it with the Vit.C would increase the absorption.
