Let the cockatiel out of his cage this morning, to the amusement of the chilluns.
Provides everybody with valuable exercise and stimulation, especially my fat, bored cockatiel.
The Grand Vegetarian Experiment continues. And I'm discovering that an important part of the vegetarian diet is ... vegetables. Which we're not eating enough of.
I've always been anemic in one way or another, but now I'm reaching the terribly low iron levels that I usually only hit when I'm pregnant. (I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant.) I've stepped up my vitamins, but I suspect that the calcium in them is canceling out any iron absorption.
So! What vegetables (that are in season right now) are wickedly high in iron? Broccoli and spinach are all that come to mind, and those are winter vegetables.
