Melinda Keen, CNC, B.S. author educator and low oxalate recipe developer. Helping others heal by promoting oxalate awareness.
Melinda’s first cookbook, “Low Oxalate Fresh and Fast Cookbook” grew out of her love of cooking and the desire to help others prepare a variety of fresh and healthy low-oxalate meals. Her second cookbook, “Real Food Real Results” includes gluten-free, low-oxalate, and nutrient-rich recipes. Both of these cookbooks include recipes measuring less than 50 mg of oxalates each. Most healthcare providers advise limiting oxalate intake to less than 40-50 mg per day. For individuals that may want to lower their oxalate further each recipe can easily be modified by using a low oxalate foods list which can be found in her third book, “Living Low Oxalate”. This book is a resource book that reveals how oxalate rich foods are linked to bladder pain, kidney stones, joint pain and inflammation, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. This well researched, easy to read book explains what oxalates are, which foods contain this natural toxin and how they can adversely affect your health. Her experience with chronic illness and research on the potential ill effects of harmful foods led her to evaluate and rework her recipes which transformed her own life and health. Her newest release, “Tame The Flame Cookbook” offers more than 150 delicious, nutritious recipes that reduce chronic inflammation and caters to individuals with food sensitivities.
