Will food in a stool specimen effect the results of a bacterial culture, c diff, and ova & parasite test? There is a lot of spinach in there.

In brief: No

Undigested food residue will not affect the tests you mentioned.

For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
