I’ve been adhering to this diet by consuming kale, zucchini, beet greens, green beans, snow peas, broccoflower, broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts baby lettuce and herb greens. Along with almond butter and buckwheat, I’m pretty sure that I consume a SIGNIFICANT amount of oxalates on a daily basis! My hope is, that I drink enough fluids to keep the oxalates moving out.
Are there any ‘candida diet’ safe suggestions for removing the oxalates from the kidneys while ingesting our lovely greens? Or are our selections of ‘candida starving’ vegetables getting narrowed down to just a few items in order to create a low oxalate diet?
Keep in mind that when Hope made that post she was ‘very’ pregnant with her baby girl, and she was not following a regular Candida ‘strict’ diet for that reason, plus Hope had experienced several other problems during her pregnancy.
The foods below supposedly have the highest amounts of oxalates:
spinach, rhubarb, Swiss chard, beets, wheat germ, chocolate, peanuts, okra, sweet potatoes, liver, grits, grapes, green pepper, celery, strawberries and black tea.
If you have reason to believe that your oxalate level is above average, or you know that you already have a problem, then avoiding those foods altogether would make a world of difference.
As far as prevention is concerned, you’re already practicing the best form of prevention; keeping properly hydrated is by far the best. Concentrated urine, which can take place without enough hydration, is far more likely to form solid crystals than when the environment is well hydrated.
