I make something similar to this this most mornings but leave out whole eggs and milk and make it into a scramble instead of an omlette

I liked the green bell pepper with the egg but nothing else was really spectacular.

Can Almond milk be used instead of soy milk? Dietitian comment: Yes. Check the ingredient list and select one without phosphate additives.

so, it's are frozen shredded hash browns lower in potassium and safe to use? Dietitian comment: No, it's the amount included. 2 tablespoons is small enough that the recipe serving is still in a kidney-friendly range for potassium. If you did soak or double boil the hash brown the potassium is even lower.

This recipe sounds great for a vegetarian, which I am. Whole egg has some acid, so I might use just the whites, add salsa & 2 or 3 corn tortillas.

I am a newly diagnosed sarcoidosis patient, seeking low-calcium recipes. Where can I find the recommended food choice chart, i.e., #Protein choices, # vegetable choices, etc., until I can get into see an RD? I know the renal patient has to follow a similar plan and need a little guidance until I make it to that appointment. Many thanks.Dietitian comment: You can order from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics at The 2 publications are "A Healthy Food Guide for People with Chronic Kidney Disease" and "A Healthy Food Guide for People on Dialysis".

I don't understand the meaning ofRenal and Renal Diabetic food choices. Can someone explain this to me..Thanks Dietitian comment: Food choices are a system developed by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Council on Renal Nutrition for kidney diet meal planning. Patients who are following a meal plan from their dietitians use the food choices to match the number of choices recommended in their meal plan. It's an alternative to adding up all the numbers for potassium, sodium, protein, etc.

I did not have hash browns so subsituted fresh mushrooms and added a teaspoon of skinny cow cheese, and served with a flour tortilla. It had a sweet flavor, and was very tasty.

Taste delicous. Perfect for the size of my appetite (eat small size meals). Like the idea of a combination of omelet filled with cooked hash brown potatoes and veggies.
