Today’s Kidney Diet: Salads & Soups Cookbook is Ready!

The newest Today’s Kidney Diet: Salads and Soups cookbook is ready to download. This cookbook has a great combination of fresh salads and favorite soups. Meet your daily produce quota by planning a soup and salad meal combo or by adding one of each to lunch and dinner.

Salads & Soups Recipes

Some suggested pairings include Grab ‘n’ Go Southwestern Salad with Southwestern Posole; Cranberry Apple Salad with Turkey, Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup; and Crunchy Couscous Salad with Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup.

In addition to salad and soup recipes, our Salads and Soups cookbook contains four bread recipes. After trying Caraway Rye Bread and Flour Tortillas, you may add homemade bread to your weekly food preparation plan.

Salad and Soup Tips

You’ll also find some great tips and ideas, such as how to turn a salad into a superfoods meal. Learn how to make your own low-sodium broth and healthy salad dressings. Read food safety tips designed to keep you safe from food-borne illnesses. And see how much sodium can be reduced when you make salad and soup at home compared to items from a restaurant or grocery store.

One of my favorite recipes in this cookbook is Jicama Fabulous. Jicama and carrots make it crunchy, grapes add natural sweetness, and the apple cider and citrus juice dressing pull together the flavors for a perfectly delightful combination.
