Kidney Diet Tips

Today’s Kidney Diet Autumn Favorites Cookbook

Autumn brings in a change of menu from grilled and chilled dishes to warm stews, slow cooker one-pot meals and desserts flavored with apple and pumpkin pie spices.

DaVita’s latest seasonal cookbook is Today’s Kidney Diet (TKD) Autumn Favorites. Think fall produce, roasted meats and vegetables and sweet fall treats.

Featured recipes include savory hearty dishes like Braised Short Ribs, Slow Rotisserie Style Chicken and Easy Crock-Pot® Beef Stroganoff, plus add-on sides like Cabbage Salad, Cranberry and Roasted Garlic Risotto (shown in the video below) and Roasted Cauliflower. Satisfy your sweet tooth with Apple Zucchini Bread or Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars.

These kidney-friendly recipes focus on limiting sodium, potassium and phosphorus while keeping great taste. Try them as part of a plan to more easily stay on track as you transition from summer to fall meals.

In addition to recipes, this cookbook provides portion control tips, recipe modification tips using the 25 percent rule, Farmer’s market fall favorites, plus salt-saving tips.
