Helpful hints

  • Substitute whole wheat toast or a soft warm flour tortilla (fajita size) for sandwich thins.
  • One medium baking potato weighs about 12 ounces.
  • Double-cook technique for reducing potassium in potatoes: Peel potatoes and cut into thin slices, diced small or shred for hash browns. Place potato pieces in a pot of water and bring to a boil. Drain water then add fresh water. Bring water to a boil and cook potatoes until tender. Drain water and prepare potatoes as desired. The double cook method reduces potassium below 200 mg for a 100 gram portion (2/3 cup).
  • Another well-known technique for reducing potassium in potatoes is to cut up and soak potato pieces in water. To learn more about this technique read the article “Lowering Potassium in Potatoes” on DaVita.com.
