Iron-rich/protein-rich vegan freezable meals!

My sister just had a baby two weeks ago and is breastfeeding, and I'm taking over cooking dinner for her, her husband, and me while I'm visiting. I'm looking for quick-ish, iron-rich vegan meals I can make for them that I can also make extra of to freeze for when I'm not around. Also taking suggestions for brands and types of pre-cooked meat that are healthy, good, and commonly available. [more inside]

Can you make a warped cast-iron skillet perfectly flat again?

Speaking of cast-iron skillets, I have two, and they worked brilliantly on a gas stove. But now that I have a flat-topped glass stove, they work less well because they're not perfectly flat. One is a bit convexly rounded on the outside, so some of it gets hotter than the rest; the other is concave on the outer bottom and sort of mounded on the inner bottom, so that oil pools around the edges, around the mound, if you can picture that. Both pans work great for baking stuff like cornbread, but not so good for steaks or such. So I've got two pans I love but now understand why I could buy them cheap at thrift shops. Question: Is there any way to make the bottoms of these pans perfectly flat again so they'll cook well?

Is it possible to get too much iron ("too much" meaning when one starts suffering detrimental effects) just from eating a lot of foods rich in iron? [more inside]
