Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or just enjoy all the festivities this time of year, our renal-friendly brunch menu and tasty recipes will make this holiday season more delightful.
Many times people on a dialysis diet either feel they must deprive themselves of yummy holiday foods in order to keep their lab results in line, or decide to forget about their renal diet altogether this time of year. The good news is indulging in delicious foods doesn’t have to mean you miss out or go overboard. DaVita.com has asked our DaVita dietitian team to put together some holiday favorites for those on a dialysis diet as well as those who have chronic kidney disease (CKD) who are not on dialysis. (Naturally, portion control is advised, as well as discussing your holiday menu with your doctor or dietitian.)
Because you may want to host a holiday brunch for family and friends who are not on a renal diet, these recipes are low in sodium, phosphorus and potassium, but high on flavor. No one will ever know the foods you’re serving are renal-friendly unless you tell them. If you’re invited out for the holidays and need to bring a dish, you’ll be able to share a tasty treat with fellow party-goers and know it adheres to your dialysis diet. By limiting portions of higher protein foods, these recipes are also appropriate for those with chronic kidney disease who are not on dialysis.
We invite you to try the scrumptious recipes on our brunch menu. We’ve made it easy for you with a comprehensive grocery list and easy-to-follow recipes. Happy holidays.
