We would have to substitute something else for the sausage as we have to watch the sodium content as well as fat content. Dietitian comment: Try the Homemade Pan Sausage or Homemade Turkey Sausage recipe on DaVita.com. Both are low in sodium. The Turkey Sausage has only 3 gram of fat per patty.

This looks good. Could you freeze the individual servings for use later?? Dietitian comment: I have not tried freezing it but if you wrap well it should work.

I love this! Make it as a treat. Even eat as a lunch with a small side salad.

Is almond milk kidney friendly? This sight is excellent! Dietitian comment: Thanks! With the explosion of nut milk beverages over the past few years, it seems there is no consistency between products in regards to protein, poitassium, phosphorus, sodium and calcium content. General guidelines are to check with your dietitian for specific products, read the nutrition label and ingredient list and select products without 'phos' additives and with lowesr potassium and phosphorus content.

This recipe looks very good. I am going to try it with some green chili sausage. I was wondering why one would use the non dairy creamer that is so full of chemicals, wouldn't that be hard on our kidneys? Moderator comment: The nondairy creamer substitutes milk to help lower the potassium and phosphorus. You could also use unenriched rice milk as a milk substitute.

I do not understand. I am a newly diagnosed PKD patient. I thought I needed to avoid protein and sodium. Eggs and sausage? I am so confused. Moderator comment: As you learn more about your individualized diet needs there will be less confusion. Kidney diet limitations will vary depending on stage of kidney disease, a person's size and their lab values and if on dialysis, the type of dialysis. The goal is to stay within your prescribed targets for nutrients such as protein, soidum, potassium and phosphorus. Calories, fat, cholesterol and carbohydrates may also be of concern depending on other diagnoses. Even some of the foods on the 'Limit or Avoid' list may be incorporated and still achieve daily targets. Ask your dietitian for help.

I was reluctant to try this at first but found that it tastes quite good! I was pleasantly surprised and will continue to make this dish! Thanks
