  1. Hi. I’m confused as I thought sweet potato was high oxolate? So hard to know what’s what! Thanks in advance x

    1. Hi Tessa. Thank you so much for your comment! Yes, potatoes and sweet potatoes are somewhat high in oxalate. However, since there is only 1 potato mixed in this ENTIRE dish, the actual oxalate content of each serving would be reasonable. The goal is not to NEVER eat most high oxalate foods, instead to control intake and be mindful of portion sizes when you do eat higher oxalate foods. Also, it is critical to pair meals with dairy for calcium to block that oxalate absorption. I hope this helps!
