Helpful hints

  • Substitute 1/4 medium red bell pepper for each tomato half if desired. Potassium is 12 mg lower.
  • Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, and other legumes are high in potassium and phosphorus. Small amounts can be included in a healthy kidney diet to increase fiber. Each boat contains approximately 1/6 cup of chickpeas.
  • Removing the pulp from tomatoes reduces the potassium content.
