Are there any Blast recipes that will prevent kidney stones?

My wife and I just purchased a Nutribullet system and we like it so far. Any particular Nutriblast recipes which will aid in fighting the formation of kidney stones? My wife is prone to getting them, a family genetic predisposition. Please give us some advice if you can.

Dietitian's Answer

While the easiest way to help prevent kidney stones would be to avoid or greatly reduce the consumption of foods high in oxalic acid, I understand you don't want to miss out on all the other nutrients packed in those foods. While it isn't 100% full proof, some suggestions to help minimize the potential for stones include: Like you mentioned, drink plenty of water (fluid) each day 8-13 cups a day - especially before a high oxalic acid meal, avoid calcium supplements (unless a Dr. advised you to) but keep eating calcium-rich foods, keep salt and animal proteins low, cook your leafy greens (also adding calcium carbonate to your greens while cooking removes even more oxalate - 1 tsp of powder per pot of water). In addition, you can choose to Blast healthy foods that are low in oxalates. LOW OXALATE FOODS Fruits: Apples, avocados, banana, cherries, cranberries, melons (cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon), seedless grapes (red and green), peaches, pear, plums. Vegetables: Asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumbers; iceberg and Romaine lettuce; radishes, mushrooms, onions (yellow and white); squash (zucchini, acorn, and yellow); red sweet peppers, turnips (root), water chestnuts. Beverages: Spring and filtered water, chamomille tea, ginger ale, beer, apple juice, apple cider. Grains: White and wild rice; barley. Herbs and Spices: Basil, cilantro, mustard, nutmeg, white pepper, saffron, tarragon, vanilla, salt. Nuts, Peas and Seeds: Coconut; black-eyed peas, green peas, and yellow split peas; flax seeds. http://www.upmc.com/patients-visitors/education/nutrition/pages/low-oxalate-diet.aspx You can read more about it here: http://whfoods.org/genpage.php?tname=george&dbid=48

After having another style juicer for 20 years (now on the shelf) - I learned that 1/2 a pear and 1 apple seeded (with filtered or coconut water) before bedtime - was good for both Kidney stones and gallstones.
Plus my NB600 keeps all the fiber in - what a great benefit!
