Curing anemia: a healthy & simple dish from camote tops leaves

Anemia is a condition in which you lack enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to your body's tissues. Having anemia can make you feel tired and weak. There are many forms of anemia, each with its own cause. Anemia can be temporary or long term, and it can range from mild to severe.

I am anemic ever since but I hate taking up commercial medicines. So instead I always include iron-rich foods in my daily diet. One of my favorite natural cure for anemia is the camote tops leaves.

These green leafy tops have the highest content of total polyphenolic, among other commercial vegetables studied. It has an excellent source of antioxidative compounds mainly, polyphenolic which protects the human body from oxidative stress associated with many diseases, including cancer and cardiovascular diseases. It is a good source of protein, minerals, dietary fiber, and nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, sodium, phosphorous, sulfur, iron, and zinc.

Here's a simple recipe that I really enjoy. It's really affordable, so easy to prepare and cook, plus it is really very healthy and can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Adobong Talbos ng Camote w/ Tofu


200 gms camote tops leaves
1 pc tofu
3 cloves garlic 
1 small onion
40ml soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
20ml cane vinegar
2 tbsps vegetable oil


1. Wash the leaves thoroughly. Set aside.
2. Fry the tofu until brown then cut into cubes. Set aside.
3. Saute garlic in 2 tbsps vegetable oil until brown, add onion, soy sauce and oyster sauce, stir for 5 seconds then add the tofu. Continue stirring for a minute.
4. Add the camote leaves and simmer for 3 to 5 mins or until the leaves are cooked.
5. Lastly add the cane vinegar.

Here's the product:

You may garnish it with fresh tomatoes and onion leeks for a more appetizing dish. I have it for lunch today and I only spend around Php25.00 for all the ingredients.

Come on guys, anemic or not it's a must try!
