Breakfast Trail Mix

Not only do I have CKD Stage 3, but also too much calcium. What would be the appropriate breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals for me? Dietitian comment: Because your calcium is high it's best to avoid products with calcium additives. Many milk substitutes and cereal products contain added calcium. Read the ingredient label and try to stick to fresh foods whenever possible. Dairy products are high in calcium so limit to the amount recommended by your dietitian.

Breakfast Trail Mix

I speak for myself only here. I found eating this dry wasn't pleasant. As a cereal it was fine. What I did was omit the Cocoa Puffs and sub with Puffed Rice Cereal. I then mixed it all with 2 TBSP. Honey, 1 TBSP Lemon Rind and 1 TBSP Splenda brown sugar substitute. Tossed in a 350 oven for 10 minutes, mixed it and baked again at 350, watching it carefully for another 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. When it came out I tossed in 1/3 cup dried cranberries and TADA homemade granola. 3/4 cup is a serving and good as a snack or with some milk substitute. Of course consult your dietitian to see if this is okay for you!
