Iron is a vital nutrient to a healthy, functioning body. It is a key part of hemoglobin, the component of red blood cells that transports oxygen from your lungs and carries it throughout your body. Without sufficient iron, your body can’t make enough healthy oxygen-carrying red blood cells.

Furthermore, iron’s oxygen carrying function contributes to mental and physical performance, thus low levels may result in a lack of focus, increased irritability, and reduced athletic stamina.

Unfortunately for those who are vegetarian or vegan, getting a sufficient amount of iron can pose a major challenge. And for the rest of us omnivores, a little iron boost here or there will help us greatly (especially if you are like me and not very into red meat).

So I present the solution: this delectable chickpea quinoa bowl which packs about 30% of the recommended daily value of iron! The main contributing iron sources of the recipe are the chickpeas and quinoa which are overflowing with iron along with many other essential micronutrients.

This bowl is a powerful healthy amalgamation of balanced macros, vital nutrients, and plant based protein – enjoy!
