New! Today’s Kidney Diet Cooking for One or Two

Have you ever made a new recipe only to find it made enough for a family of eight?  And you have a household of two! You can eat the same meal again for the next 3 nights, or you can freeze some of the leftovers. But what you really need is a collection of kidney-friendly recipes that make only a few portions. Get ready—the latest Today’s Kidney Diet Cooking for One or Two cookbook is here.

The aim of this cookbook is to supply small households with a collection of tasty, easy to make recipes that don’t include lots of leftovers or waste. Knowing exactly how much food to buy and prepare helps you to save money, plus may make meal preparation easier and enjoyable.

Love apples? Start the day off with an Apple Onion Omelet or Quick and Easy Apple Oatmeal Custard, or make Quick Microwaved Cinnamon Apples for breakfast or dessert. Are chicken and fish your go-to protein choices? Tuna Noodle Casserole, Broiled Cod with Cucumber Sauce, Chicken Veronique and Glazed Cornish Game Hen are top choice small volume recipes to try.

My favorite recipe, Bagel with Egg and Salmon, is both healthy and delicious. This superstar recipe is so scrumptious-looking it was chosen for the cookbook cover! 

In addition to the one or two dish recipes, TKD Cooking for One or Two offers leftover storage tips, ideas for no-recipe meals with only 3 main ingredients, and tips on cooking for a single household.
