P.S. If you click on the team name above, it takes you to the home page. Scroll down and near the bottom there is a library of information, and a thread topic RENAL DIET FOR BEGINNERS that has some general guidelines for things you can put on your menu plan that will be safer choices, just in case your dietician didn't give you ideas about that.
It's info from one of those free classes I mentioned.

You're definitely heading in the right direction, emoticon emoticon

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

I am SO glad! The renal dieticians (kidney specialists) can also tell you about potassium, sodium (aka salt) and other things you need to be wary of, they are a HUGE help, and I'm happy you went!

I went to a dietitian today who specialises in kidney issues and she actually made up a menu plan for me. I see I had it a little wrong, its not NO protein, its low protein. The diet sheet is going to make it soooo much easier for me for the starting phase, but thank you all, I will definitely visit the vegan site and see what it entails.

I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.

If you're looking for ideas for MEAT free meals, try going to the library for vegan recipes, they use a lot of beans and tofu, which are high in protein, but you can skirt around that, use them sparingly or whatever.
Personally, I like a veggie stir-fry or a chopped salad, either of which can be eaten alone or with rice or a tortilla...

That's a tough one. There really isn't such a thing as a NO protein diet. If it was ever alive, plant or animal, it's got protein in it. Even broccoli, there's 2.8 grams in a cup.

Low protein is important especially in crucial phases, but protein is also an essential nutrient for survival~ if it were me, I would ask my doctor about the free classes that are offered to kidney patients with a referral from the doctor... and ask for a referral to immediately see a renal nutrition specialist. They work with dialysis patients primarily, but can be very helpful in trying to prevent a slide into that state as well. Also, check out the websites for AAKP and DaVita for pamphlets and recipe ideas, and check out the beginner's thread on this team for other things you can do to help your kidneys...
...and keep posting, 'cause it always helps to have someone to just listen!

Good luck!

Does anyone have some protein free meals. Im a little tired of brocolli and cabbage but cannot eat ANY protein for the next while.

Someone on another team mentioned EAS protein products and I was looking for information on it to see if it was something that would benefit kidney patients or not-- I didn't find the answer I was looking for exactly... and I'm not sure I've got the right category for this information... but I thought this might be helpful for some of us who have issues getting enough of the kidney-friendly calories and protein. Here's what I found:

the National Kidney Foundation has this portion of their website dedicated to people on dialysis--some great recipes, from the look of it!

This is my adaptation from my sister's bread recipe, which I believe she said was from Betty Crocker...

This is the deal: There are some great recipes on SparkRecipes.com, but... finding one that's kidney friendly isn't all that easy, even so, so I'm trying something new.

This will be a sticky topic, with low sodium, low potassium, low phospate or whatever, recipes that we come across or invent, and want to share, and which can be submitted to SparkRecipes for other folks as well...

We'll see how it works, and if we like it, we'll keep it, okay?
Here's my first contribution:
