How to up the Iron in your Blood for a Double Red Donation

I like to give a Double Red. Women usually don't have enough iron in their blood to donate this way, so I have found a way. I eat a large portion of liver and onions the night before my donation which ups the iron in my blood for this special kind of donation. So if you like liver, then try eating it before you give blood and see if you qualify for a double the next time you go!
