    Re: kidney recipe book

    I bought this very book a couple of weeks ago and was so very disappointed in it. There is a total of 15 recipes in it which includes everything I can't eat on Walser's diet plan for preserving kidney function. Including tofu, meat substitutes, strange things I've not heard of like Tuno? Evidently a fake tuna. I was sorry I purchased the book.

    I did find another book I was quite interested in having. Written by a dietitian with a child who had PKU. She created low protein recipes for the child and had published a book making the recipes compatible for kidney patients also, listing all the nutrients in the recipes. I went to order it, found it wasn't available at Amazon.com so went the website offering it. https://www.myspecialdiet.com/Shop/Detail.aspx?p=117 The book cost $47! I thought that was too expensive. Still thinking on it. I would love to view it, but that's pretty costly, I thought. The book is: Apples to Zucchini: A Collection of Favorite
    Low Protein Recipes (2005) by Virginia Schuett and Dorothy Corry I did find a page where they had some sample recipes here: http://www.lowprodiet.org/viewSample.htm , with a few more listed on the left side of that page.

    Anybody heard of or have this book? If you have, did you find it helpful/useful? $47...... boy, fighting CKD can sure get expensive, huh?

          Thanks, eyeliner. I didn't think of ebay as I always use amazon for buying books. I'll check that out!

            Just checked on ebay. At first there were 2 hits but neither was the book I was looking for. They were by different authors. But thanks again for trying to help me!

              Why is tofu a no-no?

                tofu is a no-no because it's a soy product (as in dried soybean) and because of the sodium content.

                  for me, soy products = ankles like balloons.

                  i had tofu in a salad some time back and thought my ankles would never get back to normal. haven't had tofu since.

                  read labels - it a "must" for kidney disease.

                      Hello all,

                      Years ago I ate tofu.. and then stopped... I had also used soy milk with my granola.. in the morning.. and found out this is a no no, too. I now buy Rice Dream.. and it's just as good..

                      There is also a Rice bread... I went to buy it yesterday as it was advertised in the flyer, but this store didn't have it.. I bought Rice cakes instead...

                      Nice to meet you all and I look forward to discussing more with you..

                        Hi ya'll,
                        I'm new in this area of PD, it hasn't slowed me downs so far. I look forward to seeing healthy diets on this sight. After years of veggie diets now I find out most staples are not healthy for us. Jim

                            does this book worth it's price ($47) ? or are they any free shared books in this community ? it is great if we can share those ideas.
