Cajun-Style Black Beans and Rice

Iron is responsible for delivering oxygen to body cells, and without oxygen, the cells won't provide the energy we need to do daily activities. Although iron from meat, poultry, and fish is absorbed most efficiently by the body, foods like soybeans are a good source of iron too. Adding Vitamin C to a meal that contains iron will help boost the absorption of that iron, and sweet peppers are surprisingly high in Vitamin C.
