Food for those 5 days of Women- Spinach Coconut and Sesame dal

Do you have any idea about how much amount of blood is lost during menstrual cycle of women?
It is about 30-40ml in a normal women.

At this stage women requires iron.
As we all know iron helps in formation of new blood, it is the main component in hemoglobin.
During these five days food rich in iron is recommended for the women.

Women loose iron not only during menstrual cycle but also during pregnancy. Survey reviles that 80% pregnant women are anemic. Spinach contain Folic acid (vit B9), iron and very essential vitamin A that are very essential during pregnancy. Sesame is also rich source of iron.  

So I'm combining both to make a perfect combo that recovers iron and other minerals during those five days and pregnancy.
