What is your opinion on the oxalate content of spinach?

There is a myth that some green leafy vegetables are high in oxalates and therefore harmful. This is completely wrong and prevents many people from getting some of the powerful and necessary nutrients and healing properties provided by foods believed to be high in oxalates.

Oxalates are not the problem they are made out to be. Oxalates are found in every single fruit and vegetable on the planet. The vast array of nutrients in high-oxalate green leafy vegetables are some of the most nutritious we have. Medical studies and science have yet to discover that there are antioxalates in fruits, vegetables, and green leafy vegetables that prevent oxalates from causing us the damage they are currently believed to do. In reality, these foods do us no harm, but rather provide us with important healing nutrients such as phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals.

I'm allergic to oranges, what can I substitute?

You can add lemon or lime juice.

Is spinach better raw or cooked?

Raw spinach is the most nutritious and healthy. All green leafy vegetables (lettuce, kale, spinach) are best eaten raw.

Can frozen spinach be used for this soup?

Ideally, the spinach should be fresh and raw in this soup.

Should tomatoes be avoided because they are from the Potato family?

If you've heard that potato plants make conditions like arthritis worse, you can dispel that misconception. Potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and eggplants, when ripe, have no negative effect on health. Exactly the opposite! These amazing foods boost health with their nutrients and healing properties. They are exactly what you need when you are facing an illness.

The current theory is that these foods are high in alkaloids that cause inflammation, but not the alkaloids that cause inflammation. The problem is not the fruit that grows on the potato plants. We need to look at the other ingredients that are served with these foods. In the case of ketchup and ketchup, there's often high-fructose corn syrup, and where there's tomato, you'll often find pasta or a slice of sandwich bread.
