I looked into the oxalate issue when I was putting a ton of spinach in my smoothies and it turns out its only a problem if you're actually predisposed to kidney stones. And the concerns with oxalates aren't present to the same degree in other green leafy veg.

Its the "everything in moderation" and "know your own body" rules

The best course of action for health, then, is to opt out of the green smoothie fad.

If you enjoy green leafy vegetables, enjoy them in moderation in salads (not huge ones every single day) or even better, cook them thoroughly and carefully drain and discard all the cooking water – never use it in soups and sauces! Be sure to serve cooked leafy greens with butter for maximum absorption of minerals.

Fewer greens, more butter: the clear pathway to health.

i agree with Tofulish, if you're predisposed to certain things then it might not be good to gorge on green smoothies but in general i think they are fine.

my mom recently found out she has a bladder full of stones and has to have lithotripsy after the New Year (which coincidentally is exactly one of the things the company i work for does!)

shes has kidney stones before and ended up in the ER the week of thanksgiving because she had another and then somehow (xray? u/s?) they discovered she had basically a "rock garden" in her bladder.

so she has to be careful eating high oxalate foods.

also how many green smoothies a day are they talking about? i have a hard time believing one a day can cause problems.

they must be on the anti-spinach agenda! ;-)

Why even give these trolls the web traffic? The article is old, the comments pretty much debunk it and it's from A Weston Price hack.

That blogger is anti-vaccination, anti-soy, and pro "real food" (Which is a meaningless term). That really would make me skip her blog all together. Vaccination information is not "propaganda." Neither soy nor sugar will kill you and raw milk is not a miracle food.

I also didn't see an explicit statement of their qualifications to be spouting off about any of that.

I thought I was giving a quick one line response to why the statement was bullshiitake. Sorry for feeding the troll!

Oops, sorry folks! It popped up on my FB feed, I didn't even notice it was from way back in May. I just couldn't believe the headline, and - well - I just learned a lot about the crazy lady and oxalates!

You can write this crepe about anything. Bananas can totally kill you! (if you are my dad)

If you got hit in the head really hard with a banana it would hurt. Bananas are dangerous things.

They are carbs. Like processed white flour and sugar.

Green smoothies are too freaky to even speak of. I like my veggies to crunch.

I usually put half a pound of spinach in my smoothie. I will probably be dead soon.

A smart, pretty lady once suggested that kale belonged on a plate, not in a beverage. She was spot on.
