Is all red meat bad? I think this website here been very husband has a Dr.but we were never put on any diet . we were told to lower salt.he has one kidney and it has went from 3 to 5 creative. Dietitian comment: The best red meats to include on a kidney diet are the leanest cuts. Read DaVita Dietitian Shannon's Kidney Diet Tips Q&A forum post about the best choices at[INVALID]?7616-Should-red-meat-be-avoided-on-the-kidney-diet. A second consideration is how much meat to include. A healthy diet includes no more than 6 ounces meat, poultry of seafood daily. If on a lower protein diet this amount may be less.

Can chicken breast be substituted for the turkey breast. Dietitian comment: Definitely! The nutrients are approximately the same.
