My husband is on a very low protein diet for his CKD...7g (1 oz protein) for breakfast, 1 oz. for lunch and 2 oz (14g) protein for supper. This protein must total, meat,fish,eggs, cheese and dairy. Grain proteins are not included in the above but he is allowed about 6-8 g of protein for this food group. Must watch potassium of course and follow with a list of low, med. & high potassium foods. I cannot make a chili which has beans and meat in it - too much protein. Also pasta is high in protein and I order from a hospital speciality shop, very low protein pasta - Aproten for his use. It is very expensive but as meat is minimal, it offsets the price. Any ideas for LOW protein lunches, suppers and appetizers? Moderator Note: Many of the recipes on this site can be reportioned to keep the amount of meat at 1 ounce per erving. The DaVita Diet Helper has a 50 gram protein that can be modified for a lower protein plan. Check the FAQs for tips on how to do this.
