Talk about cliche. A pic of a kid with spaghetti in her nose? But this is special spaghetti. As I’ve mentioned in part 1 and part 2, I can’t get my child to eat. At our last checkup Dr. Barrow said Audrey is borderline anemic. He said to give her leafy greens. FAT CHANCE. I can barely get the kid to eat ice cream let alone LEAFY GREENS. Deep breaths, deep breaths.
So in order sneak iron into her diet without resulting to supplements, I’ve been cooking everything in a cast iron pan. According to Alice when you cook tomatoes or other acidic foods in iron, the amount of dietary iron jumps significantly (like from .6mg to 5.7mg ). For Audrey’s spaghetti, I browned some organic grassfed beef in my cast iron and then added classic organic marinara sauce over it and let it simmer on low for about a half hour. She ate it. Well, she ate some. V for Victory.
