Ever heard the phrase, “Too much of a good thing?” Well, it even applies to eating too much of what are deemed “healthy foods.” You may feel good that your diet consists of dark leafy greens, fruits and vegetables, but you can actually be overindulging in these healthy foods. In turn, they can harm you.

As it goes with most everything in life, moderation is the key, and healthy foods are not immune to this rule either.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about promoting healthy eating and believe that healthy foods can keep us well and strong. But just be weary if you’re enjoying too much of any of these items.


If it was good for Popeye, it must be good for us! I’m sure when you were growing up spinach was pushed at you time and again. Now that you’re older, you can appreciate it as a healthy food and a staple to a healthy diet. Unfortunately, though, even too much spinach can be bad for you (maybe Popeye should have seen a doctor at some point).

Spinach is a beneficial health food as it’s packed with protein, fiber and other vitamins and nutrients. Spinach is also high in oxalate – naturally found in food and the body. Too much oxalate can lead to kidney stones, and those who are prone to kidney stones should moderate their intake of not only spinach, but other foods that contain high amounts of oxalate.
