Although it sounds very exotic, couscous is nothing but broken wheat cooked in water or milk, something that everybody can prepare easily at home. A traditional food of Northern Africa, it is a great source of iron. Minty Couscous is a flavourful variant in which couscous is enhanced with chopped veggies, coriander and mint, along with a dash of lemon juice.The ingredients accompanying the couscous pull in sufficient vitamin C to enhance the absorption of iron and improve blood circulation.
