8 Incredible Egg Recipes for the Kidney Diet
If you're looking for a quick protein source for a meal or snack, cook up an egg or egg white recipe. Eggs are a great source of inexpensive, high-quality protein that can be eaten at any meal of the day. From hard-boiled and deviled eggs, to smoothies and omelets, you can stretch the usefulness of eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Egg whites are 100 percent protein and are low in cholesterol and phosphorus. Egg yolks have higher levels of cholesterol and phosphorus, so if these are a concern, don't eat the yolk.
