I can't find ground celery seeds. Is there anything else I can sub in its place? Dietitian comment: You can pulse celery seen in a blender or food processor to grind or omit from the recipe. I think that would work since there are so many other seasonings included.

What is Marjoram? Dietitian comment: It is an herb similar to oregano. You can substitute oregano if it is unavailable.

I find it very difficult to know what to eat even though I am aware not to eat food with much sodium or potassium, I think that I get confused a out how much protein to eat. Dietitian comment: It is confusing since different stages of kidney disease require different dietary focus. If possible work with a dietitian to learn about the best diet choices for your own needs.
