Thinking about going meatless? Soy-based meals can help cut cholesterol and saturated fat in your kidney diet, and may save you money when you eat them as a replacement for sometimes more expensive meat-based meals. From tofu to tempeh, DaVita dietitians have created three tasty kidney-friendly, soy-based recipes to get you started. Additionally, you can simply replace meat and poultry with tofu, tempeh or textured soy protein to create your own vegetarian meals. As always, read the label and discuss incorporating soy into your diet with your dietitian.
