Default Re: Q: foods that are high in iron but low in cholestral?

I am vegetarian and for a couple of years until last year I was severely anemic. I had terrible side effects from it including my acid reflux being much worse than it is now. I had to take iron supplements (ferrous sulfate) twice a day for 4 months to get back to normal and continue to take iron supplements two or three times per week. I try to eat beans, green leafy veggies to get iron but my doctor recommended that I continue to take the supplements a couple of days per week and more during my period. I buy generic iron supplements at the drug store for about $4.00 for 100 tablets so it is very inexpensive.
