What is considered a good potassium intake/daily for Stage 4 Kidney Disease? Dietitian comment: We recommend you ask your doctor for a diet prescription. In stage 4 CKD some patients have normal or even low potassium levels and others have high levels. If levels run high the usual potassium limit is 2,ooo mg daily.

Trying to juggle Weight Watchers for me and Renal for my husband. Can saturated fat and sugar be shown as well? Dietitian comment: Sorry we do not include those nutrients.

Made this for my mother-in-law. It was excellent. I used fresh vegetables because I hate broccoli stems, but frozen would be easier and a little more nutritious. Swapped half the stock for pasta water (helps it thicken and reduces salt). Also added some fresh herbs for flavor (basil, tarragon, oregano, extra garlic). For my wife, daughter and I, just added salt when it was done and were good to go. Really good, thank you.

Can this recipe be frozen for later use?? Dietitian comment: I have not tried it but my guess is it would freeze and reheat without any issues.

This sounds very good and i will make it but.....273 calories isnt enough for a man. I am losing too much weight. I am new to this and woukd appreciate suggestions on how to complete a meal. 48 carbs is too high for diabetes as im only allowed 35. I will have to have less of the main ingredient to allow for this. Is there somewhere on the site that show how to do,this? Dietitian comment: You can use the My Recipe Creations feature in DaVita Diet Helper to remake the recipe using the portions you need. It will provide the new nutrient values.

Ingredients list includes 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder but then it is never mentioned anywhere in the recipe. Where and when should it be added? Dietitian comment: Thanks for calling out the missing ingredient. The recipe now has garlic powder in the prep notes.

This was great! Very tasty. I added the parmesan cheese right into the sauce mix and heated it thru - made the sauce creamier.
