Kidney Friendly Recipes – Certified by Registered Dietitian

Looking for kidney friendly recipes you can trust?  If you or a loved one suffer from early stage CKD, you probably already know the importance of monitoring your diet.  Limiting sodium, phosphorus and sugars are important for your health, but can also make cooking delicious food a challenge. Well – you are in luck, because this collection of recipes will give you a lot of choices to spice up your meal planning.

So where do these kidney friendly recipes come from?

Carla Spencer, a Registered Dietitian, specializes in helping patients with early stage chronic kidney disease.  With a lifetime of experience consulting and cooking, she has amassed a trove of recipes for all occasions.  These recipes have all been personally prepared and tested by Carla.  Not only does she make sure they taste good – but the ingredients and nutrition analysis is also carefully monitored to make sure they are truly kidney friendly.

What makes these kidney friendly recipes unique?

Unlike most recipe websites – our kidney friendly recipes display real-time nutritional analysis, calculated from the exact ingredients listed in the recipe.  Occasionally, recipes will call for a name-brand specialty item, and the nutrition information is based on that specific item.  You will know exactly what you are preparing and eating.

Are these recipes safe for the DASH diet or ADA diet?

Not only are these recipes great for CKD diets, but the nutritional requirements also make them ideal for diets related to heart disease and diabetes.  The DASH diet and guidelines from the American Diabetes Association also require restrictions in sodium and sugar intake.  These kidney friendly recipes are completely safe and appropriate for these diets as well.  They are also great for anyone wanting to create healthier menus for their family.
