Apple Zucchini Bread

I've just started on the kidney friendly diet and made the zucchini apple bread it is delicious! I was pleasantly surprised! My son who does not have to watch elements in his diet ate a piece and thought it was really good too, so thumbs up for this recipe!

C'mon guys - who can eat 1/2 slice. Sometimes your portion sizes are totally unrealistic. When portion sizes aren't realistic, people over-do. Better to change the portion size & nutrient values to represent what people would normally eat. The government has just required food manufacturers to label their products with realistic serving sizes, I would like to see Davita follow suit please. Low rating because of preceding comment. Dietitian comment: I think you misunderstood the portion size. It is one slice, 1/2 inch, not 1/2 slice. The recipe makes 2 loaves of bread, or 18 slices per loaf.

this bread recipie has white flour, processed white good; Dietitian comment: You could substitute whole wheat flour. The potassium and phosphorus will be higher but you do gain fiber and additional nutrients.

Something is not quite right on the amount of flour shown in the ingredient list and the amount of flour actually used in the recipe. Someone should take another look at it. Dietitian comment: Thanks for letting us know. The flour in the bread batter is 3-1/2 cups instead of 1/2 cup.
