Favorite 4th of July Kidney-friendly Picnic Recipes
Fireworks, outdoor games and friendly gatherings are a great way to kick off the first holiday of the summer. Naturally, when people get together there’s bound to be food. It can be a challenge to stick to a kidney-friendly eating plan when attending 4th of July picnics and cookouts. To help with planning, here are a few picnic-favorite recipes—including muffins, salads, chicken and cookies—to bring along so you can enjoy the festivities and not pay for it by feeling bad later.
These are just a small sampling of the kidney-friendly recipes on DaVita.com—take a look for other mouthwatering recipes. Make sure you bring a variety of foods that you can enjoy to your July 4th picnic. If you’re going to share pot-luck-style, double check which fruits and vegetables are high in potassium and which foods are high in phosphorus so you can limit or avoid them. And, pack your phosphorus binders in your picnic basket so you’ll remember to take them.
Make sure it’s a happy and safe 4th of July with delicious picnic foods and good times with friends and family.
