The health benefits of salmon make it an excellent choice for the kidney diet. Salmon is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids that help decrease chronic inflammation and protect against heart disease and cancer. In addition, salmon is low in saturated fat and is an excellent source of protein with all the essential amino acids needed for the body to work and maintain muscles.
The American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association recommend eating salmon or other high omega-3 fish sources 2-3 times a week. This DaVita.com recipe collection is a great place to start.
