Kidney Diet Tips

Preparing for Thanksgiving

08964-COMM-WP-Google+Hangout_Facebook_InstagramHalloween kicked off the fall holiday season with sweet treats and fun. Fast forward a month and here we are at Thanksgiving—the savory food, family and friend-focused holiday. In addition to reflecting on what we are thankful for, Thanksgiving brings more food choices with bigger than usual meals, yummy tempting desserts and leftovers.

For anyone following a special diet—for kidney, diabetes, or heart health—this food-focused holiday can be stressful and even cause health issues related to dietary indulgences. That’s why it’s important to prepare ahead and arm yourself with a plan for this 4-day holiday weekend.
