Kidney Health Gourmet Diet Guide & Cookbook
Dadvice TV's 4th favorite cookbook for those on a renal diet and wanting food that is Kidney and Diabetic friendly. Don't get too excited about the "Restaurant Guide" - it is barely half a page long and only has a few options for a few restaurants. The value of this book is the recipes. The recipes are easy to follow and quick to prepare, making this book a good choice for those limited time.
Smoothies for Kidney Health
Smoothies for Kidney Health is a very special recipe book. It is expertly put together by a kidney donor, who is a registered nurse, and her mom, the recipient of her kidney. Together, they have taken their knowledge and experience to create a resource for all those suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD).
Each recipe includes the potassium, phosphorus, calcium and other levels so that you can find just the right smoothies for your stage of CKD. Most recipes are great for stages 1-3a, with very few for stages 3b, 4 or 5.
