I want to give blood tomorrow but in the past few years I always get rejected because my iron level is just a bit too low. What foods can I eat that will allow me to quickly absorb iron into my blood? I've read lists of high iron foods online but my sense is that absorption rates are just as important as how much iron the food actually has. I was thinking of making liver and onions for dinner. What else can I do to get some iron in my blood and keep it there until mid-day tomorrow?
