I advise the eggs & cheese be organic to avoid their being from animals fed gmo corn & soy. Avocados are also a good food for weight gain and potatoes may help too. ...Read more
I am a pure vegetarian and wanted to know which fruits and vegetables I can eat to increase hemoglobin content in my body?
It depends...: This depends on whether you are deficient in iron, B12 or folate (folic acid); if so, then increasing your levels will increase hemoglobin; if not then it won't make a difference. There are no good vegetable sources of b12- you need to supplement with it. For good sources of iron see http://www. Vrg. Org/nutrition/iron. Php for folate (folic acid) sources see http://www.
