What can I drink to increase my iron intake? I have been drinking green tea but have learned that this inhibits iron uptake.

In brief: Real nutrition

No beverage except blood or iron-fortified drinks will provide iron.
If you are a non-supplementing vegetarian please reconsider. If you are iron deficient at your age, you have cancer until proved otherwise. Forgive my frankness; your physician owes it to you to be equally up front with you. In the meantime, get with a scientific nutritionist. You are right about the tea, by the way
