I would say that, on average, spinach in particular would result in a net loss of minerals, because it is SO high in oxalate. Most (though not all) other oxalate-containing foods are nowhere near this high. As for your other questions, I'll tackle... (more)

You would not get enough variety of nutrients and vitamins. Eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables is healthier. Add in some broccoli, kale, tomatoes and peppers and now we are talking about a diet. (more)
