GRILLED CHICKEN & SALAD

Chicken is a good source of protein for dialysis patients. Although some patients need to watch their protein intake, the body requires an adequate amount of high-quality protein to function properly. 

Skinless chicken breast is adequately low in phosphorus, potassium, and sodium and can be used to prepare a delicious main for lunch with a salad on the side. For the salad, it is good to include vegetables that are rich in antioxidants, as it will help increase the quality of dialysis. 

Consult your doctor or renal dietician regarding the suitable meal portion size for your body for your optimum intake of nutrients.

Salt-Free Pizza

SALT- FREE PIZZA

Who says pizza isn’t good for you? It’s actually a great addition to a dialysis diet. Dialysis patients can enjoy a pizza for lunch by making sure everything is prepared from scratch to ensure it’s prepared with zero salt. The cheese used will already add just the right amount of salt needed to taste, so a salt-free pizza is a great option. Then, by careful selection of the vegetables and rationing the amount of meat, the pizza can be prepared easily within the dietary requirements of a dialysis patient.
