New! Today’s Kidney Diet Roasted Recipes Cookbook

Labor Day marks the end of summer and ushers in cooler weather. When cooler days and nights arrive it’s time to warm up the kitchen. This includes using the oven for roasting and one-pan meals. Time to try some new roasted recipes!

The newest Today’s Kidney Diet Roasted Recipes cookbook from DaVita contains 14 roasted recipes. We’ve included roasted salads, main courses, sides and desserts. Try Roasted Carrot and Cauliflower Salad or Slow-Roasted Beef Pot Roast with Carrots and Turnips. If you are looking for a one-pan meal try one of the sheet pan dinners like Sheet Pan Chicken, Green Beans and Potato Dinner or Sheet Pan Sirloin Tips with Squash and Pineapple.

One of my favorites is the Roasted Maple Cinnamon Pears. Add whipped cream to make it a dessert or top with homemade granola and Greek yogurt for a healthy breakfast. Try the kidney-friendly Apple Cinnamon Maple Granola recipe on

In addition to the roasted recipes this cookbook contains helpful information on roasting, ways to utilize roasted meat leftovers, menu items to serve with a roast, and tips for roasting fruit. An added bonus, our Today’s Kidney Diet: Quick Reference Guide will help you choose the ideal foods for your stage of chronic kidney disease (CKD).
