Bob’s Red Mill Veggie Soup Mix – Free Shipping! + Iron Deficiency and London’s 3-Year Checkup
If you’re eating vegan on a budget, then buying in bulk is a great way to save. This deal is for 7.25 pounds of veggie soup mix for just $11.87 + free shipping!
The price is great, but my favorite thing about this soup mix is that it has 22% of the recommended daily value of iron! That’s really high for iron!
In fact, London recently had her 3-year checkup. Her pediatrician had blood work done to test her nutrition levels out of curiosity because London is vegan. One of the things they tested for, and which the doctor seemed concerned about with her being vegan, was iron. I’m happy to say that her blood work results came back great and everything was normal! If you’re vegan and/or raising a vegan kid, try your best to read nutrition labels and make sure you’re getting a lot of vitamins.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency in the United States, and the leading cause of anemia. So, it’s not only vegans who need to make sure they get enough iron! Although it’s a common nutritional deficiency, it’s a serious one. Iron does a lot for your body, including helping muscles to store and use oxygen.
I rely on lentils for a good portion of our iron. The 1.5 pound bags of Bob’s Red Mill Lentils at my local grocery store are $5-6 each, making this about half that price! Lentils alone only have 15% of the DV for iron per serving. With this soup mix having 22%, not only are you saving money but you get more bang-for-your-buck nutritionally! YAY

Are You Raising a Vegan Child/Children?…
Are you raising your child/children vegan? Does their pediatrician seem extra-concerned about their diet?
London’s pediatrician seems unfamiliar with a vegan diet and always orders extra blood work to monitor her nutrition levels. At first I was slightly offended, but now I’m happy that she does the extra tests. London has always checked out 100% healthy and I believe that she will help to change her Dr.’s initial assumption that vegans are malnourished.
I’d love to hear your experience with pediatricians and raising vegan kids!
