subitutions for the diet because of medical reason
Posted Friday, March 30, 2012 at 3:42 PM

I have had kidney stones. What can I use for greens when they say no dark green greens?

You could focus on the lower oxalate greens like cabbage, broccoli, and bok choy. Even kale is lower than spinach, for example. You can find similar nutrients, such as calcium, in your beans.

You could also drink or eat nettles - they are known to dissolve kidney stones and be an overall great tonic for the kidneys.
