Sometimes you just need more iron in your diet, here are some ways to naturally increase your iron intake ...
NaeKid's Beef Liver and Onions
1 package of the cheapest and greasiest bacon you can find
1 package (or two) of fresh beef liver
Couple large onions
“Superstore's” Tequila and Habanero BBQ sauce (ya, its hot!)
In very large cast-iron pan with fitting cast-iron lid, place about half-package of bacon into pan and let simmer on low till the oils are rendered out, then set soft bacon aside. Cut the onions into half-rings and saute in the bacon fat in the pan till golden brown, then set the onions aside. Place the fresh beef liver into the remaining bacon fat, place the bacon on top of the liver and then the onion on top of the bacon. Pour generous amount of BBQ sauce onto onions, bacon and liver. Cover and let cook. Squeegie bacon and onion to the side, flip liver and place bacon and onion on top of liver again, pour generous amount of BBQ on again and re-cover with heavy lid.
When liver is cooked through, serve on place with side of cooked beets and spinach salad.

Ready or not, trouble comes. Being prepared for it and having the right attitude to deal with the issues is what makes us prepared. Having stuff is just a bonus!
The problem with society today is that the people who deserve the beating are not given the beating they deserve.
If possible buy only organic organ meats,espeically livers and gizzards becaue these are the cleaning systems where all the chemicles go or are stored.
Soon as I can get to the organic store I'll try this recipe out,sounds good.
Lol, I thought this was about iron overload, didn't look at which forum it was in. I tend towards iron overload myself.
Sounds awesome, I love liver although the way some people cook it is not for me, I like it cooked THROUGH like mentioned. I really think we should be eating more organ meat to get back to a more traditional and healthy diet.
Beets have become one of my favorite vegetables lately as well. I find myself substituting swisschard for spinach most of the time, it isn't much different but I prefer the taste for some reason.
