New Cookbook: Small Spaces Cooking

Meals can be challenging to prep when you don’t have a lot of space to work with. You may have a small apartment, small kitchen in general, or you may even be camping without a lot of space or resources. The latest Today’s Kidney Diet cookbook, Small Spaces Cooking, offers recipes and ideas to prepare healthy, kidney-friendly meals with limited space or kitchen gadgets.

Cramped kitchen? No sweat.

DaVita dietitians have packed this cookbook with ideas for creating delicious and healthy meals, even if your kitchen is tiny. The key? Simple recipes with few ingredients, that you can prepare in all sorts of ways.

Forget fancy gadgets

This cookbook focuses on smart tools that maximize space. Think cutting boards that fit over your sink, stackable containers, hanging racks, nesting bowls and more. They’ll help you whip up tasty meals without feeling cluttered.

Versatile recipes

Love grilled food but stuck with a toaster oven? No problem. This cookbook shows you how to adapt recipes to your appliances. From breakfast to dessert, you’ll find ideas for every meal.
