Helpful hints

  • Use turkey or chicken leftover from a holiday meal.
  • Make a meatless salad by replacing chicken or turkey with either diced extra firm tofu and coarsely diced mushrooms or diced cooked egg white and coarsely diced mushrooms.
  • In the egg white variation, use the whites of hardboiled eggs or cooked pasteurized liquid egg whites.
  • Nuts are high in phosphorus and potassium. By limiting portion to 1/2 cup the walnuts add 32 mg phosphorus and 50 mg potassium per serving. Omit if desired.
  • Use low-fat sour cream and mayonnaise to cut fat grams in half.
