Notes

Kidney Stone Diet Safe Tips: I do like a smoothie as a way to get my added calcium. Kefir is a drinkable yogurt. And it is lactose-free as well. If you do not do dairy, use your favorite calcium-fortified non-dairy beverage for this smoothie. I get plain, non-fat, as smoothies can really pack on the calories if you don’t pay attention. This has a little oxalate from the strawberries but not to worry as the calcium is so high! There are so many fruits and veggies you can have on a lower oxalate diet. Keep the total of oxalate under 100 (unless your doc has instructed you otherwise) and get your calcium each day. I spend most of my day bringing foods back into patient’s lives, as they thought they “had nothing to eat.” Simply not true! I like my smoothies to be almost like a milkshake so I put ice into mine, if you don’t then no ice for you! Your kitchen, your rules!
