According to National Kidney Foundation, broccoli is a high potassium food and is therefore a NO-NO. Why is a dietitian writing and DaVita publishing this recipe? If not DaVita, who am I supposed to follow? Moderator Comment: The DaVita dietitian team does allow broccoli in their diet guidelines and patient education materials since a 1/2 cup portion has only 115 to 188 mg potassium, depending on if it is fresh or frozen cooked, and if it is chopped, florets or spears. You can include broccoli in a low potassium diet. If you follow the recipe guidelines for 3/4 cup your potassium is 237 mg a serving, an acceptable amount for a low potassium vegetable dish. When evaluating recipes, it is important to look at the total nutrient amount per serving as opposed to each individual ingredient in the recipe.
