Here's some good charts:

Pumpkin seeds are really easy to come by this time of year, and they are a great source. We just made some pumpkin bread today and I roasted the seeds. Its so easy

Chlorophyll is great, and you can buy a big bottle that'll last you a month for less than $10. Just add 2tbsp to your OJ in the morning, and make sure that it isn't calcium-fortified OJ since calcium blocks iron absorption. If you're not vegan, then also make sure that you don't consume a lot of dairy (totaling more than 300mg calcium) when you eat your iron rich foods.
