Which brand would you recommend for bagels!? I cannot find any with a decent amount of sodium in them that would allow me to eat one for breakfast! Dietitian comment: You could opt for the mini-sized bagel to keep sodium lower or you could substitute toasted bread for the bagel.

I'm one of those odd ducks who needs to push potassium to keep my levels maintained. I love all these ingredients separately. Together they are fab. Try jalepeno cream cheese. Yum!

Love bagels with tomato, cream cheese and a hint of onion. Thinking about making this a staple of my dialysis diet, i.e. DD.

To further reduce potassium, use a couple 1/8 inch slices of tomato, or one 1/4 inch slice. Still tastes good.

Plain bagel? Some are more in sodium than others. Great breakfast includes coffee ! Dietitian comment:Plain bagels are sometimes higher in sodium than flavored so it's best to check the label and compare brands and options. Watch out for the supersized bagels[INVALID]almost 700 mg sodium in one bagel!

I was told tomatoes are the worst thing u can eat with kidney failure??? Moderator: True tomatoes and tomato products are high in potassium. Small amounts of tomato can easily be worked into kidney-friendly recipes. It's the total amount per serving that matters. The 1/4 inch tomato slice in this recipe contains 45 mg potassium.
