Limiting favorite foods can make living a low-oxalate diet difficult, but finding replacements for certain foods you’re craving can help make it a little more palatable. For instance, swapping vegetable noodles, like spiralized zucchini, for regular or whole wheat noodles and adding calcium and lemon — which are both kidney-friendly options for a low-oxalate lifestyle — can create a flavorful dish to satisfy your pasta craving. Our Low-Oxalate Lemon Pepper Zoodles dish is a delicious way to celebrate National Kidney Month and support healthy kidney function for the entire family.
