My doctor was so happy today, I’ve never seen him that happy! I did what you told me when you told me to. I still can eat my favorite foods and my eGFR number went up, my potassium and cholesterol are good, and my A1C went down to normal. I am so happy! I told him I had some help and gave him your name. Thank you!

BASIC ESSENTIALS (BASICS):
about the major nutrient players in CKD, you know 'em... potassium, phosphorus, sodium, protein, carbs, and we talk about fluid intake too.
general nutrient guidelines to follow until specific, personalized restriction numbers are received. Not everyone has their specific numbers so we help you out in the mean time.

all the various food groups, and many more that you haven't considered, but need to be. Not kidding. Foods you haven't thought about. like yeast.... who really thinks about the nutritional value of yeast?? um... WE do! And now you are going to know too.
how to use the comprehensive, categorized food reference sheets for quick and easy food choices and substitutions (over 25 food topics covered). This is a huge component. Ya can't execute a safe and simplified kidney diet if you don't have all the information you need.
nearly impossible to find insider tips and information that most people don't know, but help to ease the stresses of CKD eating. My mind was blown when I discovered these gold nuggets. A huge sigh of relief was had. Now I want to whisper them to you too!
the best resources to find accurate nutritional information for ingredients and products. Ya hafta know where to look. It took years of digging but, we found them!
how to create personal substitute food lists for quick, safe, and reliable ingredient swaps. There is no way you are going to like every food that someone else does so why use someone else's list? Let's get you your own.

Most people are dealing with additional health problems, and if you have CKD, it is nearly a guarantee that a new one will show up. We show you how to easily manage that with a few shifts, tweaks, and quick adjustments. No sweat, no worries.
how to calculate nutrients and find missing nutrient amounts. You need to know what's in foods you're eating, right? if it isn't showing on the label, we can show you how to easily figure it out.

Either way, when you make any change to a recipe, like switching out an ingredient, let's make sure you have this tool in your kit so you know how to determine the new nutritional amounts and assure you are within your needs.

how to calculate your personalized base guideline meal and snack numbers, guaranteeing you safely leave room for those snacks and desserts. You cannot safely choose recipes to use, or even create recipes, if you don't know how much you can have per meal of each of those nutrients you must monitor. This is a huge, huge key to making sure you are keeping your kidneys smiling.
how to shift those numbers and adjust meals when outside of their normal routine, like a family gathering or holidays. It happens; we all have our cheat days so, let us show you how to super easily prepare for and enjoy them.
