    Nowadays we’re also concerned about using vegetables which don’t contribute to calcium loss (osteoporosis), a better choice of greens would be kale , collards, bok choy not spinach, chard, or beet greens. These last three have long been known to remove calcium from our bones because of their oxalic acid content.

    Yikes, I didn’t know that spinach could leach calcium from your bones. Thanks for sharing that info.

    I wouldn’t use bok choy as it could impart a slippery or slimy feel to the soup. I really like this recipe, thank you!

    I had no idea spinach (which i love) could suck calcium from my bones.

    I love this bean recipe, but would add real onion & garlic to it rather than the powders. Might even add arugala at the very end instead of spinach.

    Thanks for sharing.
