When I was young and ate meat, my hemoglobin was always little too low. It rose after I stopped meat eating (but I still ate fish sometimes), and I didn't know very much about vegetarian food then. Now I have been lacto-ovo-vegetarian for many years, and I've never had any iron-problems during these years. For example lentils, soy-products, rye bread and nettle are very good vegetarian iron sources. To get protein, you should eat beans, seeds, nuts, and whole grain products.

You might just include some fortified foods in your diet somewhere or a supplement or two (B12 would be one of my concerns also) to make up for the lack in a veg diet.
