13 Awesome Apple Recipes for a Kidney Diet

There may be some truth to the old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Packed with antioxidants that help inhibit inflammation and decrease oxidation, several research studies have said that apples can lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. Apples are also beneficial for people with kidney disease who follow a low-potassium diet—one medium apple contains only 158 mg of potassium and almost 4 grams of fiber, plus it is naturally in its own 100-calorie package. From breakfast to dessert, you’re sure to find an awesome apple recipe to add to your personal collection.
