Summer cookout recipes for a kidney diet
The end of summer is approaching, and August and September weekends are best times to stay out of the kitchen and plan a few last summer cookouts. One great way to stick to your kidney diet and still enjoy a backyard cookout is to host it at your house. While some cookout side dishes can be pitfalls for the dialysis diet, if you serve a variety of healthy foods that you can enjoy, as well as take your phosphorus binders, you can have a great time eating and mingling with friends and family. You’ll find a delicious array of kidney-friendly grill recipes on DaVita.com. From burgers and seafood to chicken and beef, there are a number of creative recipes using all sorts of flavorings to perk up your party. For side dishes, check out appetizers and snacks and no cook recipe selections. If you can’t imagine a cookout without potato salad, you can try the kidney diet recipe for Picnic Potato Salad, a lower potassium potato version of this popular recipe.
Let your guests know what dishes you’ll be serving and invite them to bring other items. For close family and friends, if you’re comfortable doing so, tell them you’ll be serving kidney diet approved foods and if they would like to support your menu, let them know they can find kidney-friendly recipes at DaVita.com. Think about including a summer cookout celebration for the upcoming Labor Day. Check out last year’s Labor Day Kidney Diet Tips for Kidney Patients to Stay on Track.
