Helpful hints

  • If preferred use margarine instead of butter.
  • Any flavor jelly is acceptable.Serve with carrot sticks and apple slices.
  • Select low-sodium peanut butter to reduce sodium to 350 mg.
  • Peanut butter is a high potassium, high phosphorus ingredient but still works in a kidney diet as a substitute for meat. Portion control is important. 
  • Additional phosphate binder may be required if eaten as a snack---check with your renal dietitian.

What if I don't grill the sandwich and don't use the butter will the phosphorus or potassium numbers change? Dietitian comment: No the values for phosphorus and potassium will be about the same. If you reduce the peanut butter to 1 tablespoon the values are lower.

I thought that we weren't supposed to have peanut butter because of the phosphorous Dietitian comment: If it is the main protein source you can have reasonable amounts of peanut butter in place of meat.

how can this be safe? hi potassium hi phospherous (maybe) and hi sodium what is the difference between this and regular peanut butter? Dietitian comment: Peanut butter can be included in a kidney diet in controlled amounts and as a replacement for other protein source--that's what keeps the potassium and phosphorus within a kidney-friendly goal. The bread contributes most of the sodium but still less than 500 mg. You could add additional items like fruit, to complete the meal and still stay with 1/3 of the sodium for a 2000 mg sodium diet.

I found this has a little too much sodium for me so I just take 1 piece of bread, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and 1 teaspoon of jelly and eat it open faced with an apple on the side. Still good.

A lot of these recipes sound great but being new to dialysis I'm not ready to experiment yet. I am still learning from my nutritionist in my dialysis center.

It's actually easier to butter the tops of two pieces of bread and then toast in the toaster over, then put the PB&J on it and eat it. No pans to clean.
