The Kidney Friendly Diet Cookbook: Recipes For A PreDialysis Kidney Disease Lifestyle

The Kidney Friendly Diet Cookbook: Recipes For A Pre-Dialysis Kidney Disease Lifestyle

Welcome, to my first review of a cookbook for renal diets.   This particular cookbook is specifically targeted at predialysis kidney disease patients and should be followed accordingly.  The book is easy to read and is color coded by type of food.  The large print format is very readable for eyes that are not so good. The author does provide some color photos of the foods but not every recipes has a photo, I do not find that to be a very big deal, at least for me.

 Qualified For Renal Diets

The one thing that I can say after all my research is the the author appears to be very qualified and has a website on renal diets.  As a registered dietitian, she seems to have experience with renal disease patients and also diabetes patients and many times these two conditions run together.

Now, let’s get to the recipes.  As I have prepared several of the recipes they are very easy to understand and prepare. I do like that all the nutritionals are available for every recipe and that this allows each particular user the option to pick and choose the recipes that are right for them.  Potassium and phosphorus are clearly stated as well as all the other essential nutritionals as per the normal guidelines for renal diets.

I find that cookbooks in this category a bit higher priced than certain other categories but the information is much more detailed and well worth the price.  Many predialysis patients would spend many tireless hours searching for this many recipes so, I say it is well worth the money.

Please find the cookbook for renal diets here if you wish to give it a try, I think you will like it.
