In brief: It's not

I am sorry you follow for the "perfect food" stuff.
Oxalate will not hurt you if you are healthy. Iron in spinach is bound to Phytates and is not available. Food choices are not the key to health despite all the silly stuff online. No food choice will benefit you as much as eating sensibly and exercising consistently and intensely. Glad you want to be healthy -- be discerning
