Read the Press Release HERE

Toss all the BS you hold in your hands right now, cos I am here to blow the doors open on CKD eating.

Hi, I’m Linda Blaylock, Nutritionist, Chef, Kidney Health Coach, Queen of CKD eating, and the creator of The How to Eat for CKD Method™

Yes, I’m the Queen of CKD eating, and I know how to rock this when it comes to picking your a$$ up off the floor after the professionals drop you, when the old, outdated information fails you, and the conflicting, this-sh1t-doesn’t-make-any-sense confusion slaps you in the face.

I am on a mission, people. A mission to teach the CKD community exactly how to eat within their dietary restrictions and preferences successfully and easily, for life.

Finally. It’s been a long time struggling and waiting for those answers that the professionals just can’t provide. This help is sorely needed, and I am here to deliver. Watching my husband’s labs remain stable all these years means we know what we are doing, we believe in it, and we know it’s going to work for you.

“I have no idea what to eat.”

“I am sick of conflicting information.”

“I need help but have no clue where to get it. “

“I am not giving up my favorite foods and meals.”

“It’s tooooo hard to figure out and follow.”


If anything on this list screams “Get outta my head! Have you been eavesdropping?” then we are absolutely in alignment, and you should consider yourself a How to Eat for CKD family member for life.

I believe that you can easily learn how to make those dietary changes.

If you have the commitment to learn it, you can do it.

I believe the real reason you haven’t been able to figure out this demanding and complicated diet is because the information available to you with a search online is only giving you old, outdated, and simplified information. There’s a complete process and a ton of information not given to you because it’s not a quick, one-pager of information to explain it. They dumb it down for you, just tell you not to eat a ton of foods or entire food groups, then toss their hands in the air and say, “it’s not my problem.”

The process, the information that they don’t want to explain is available. It’s available cos I’m the only one with the ba11s to come forward and take the time to show it to you. You deserve it. 

They tell you that you have a fatal (Yes, it’s fatal) disease, then toss you on your rump to figure out how to save your own life. Thanks for the sore a$$!

Let’s face it, you’re on your own.

But I can help you. I got you.


Look, I’m not feeding you lines or riling up your feathers here about me blowing open those doors. 

You want to know what’s happening?

Read the numerous testimonials on this page!

You will not find anything like this anywhere else. I’m not going to have you wading through BS and trying to decode and untangle things to arrive at a questionable answer.

I’m giving it to you straight. Who has time to waste??

Not sure? Don’t believe me?

CKD Berbere Chicken

Ya wondering who this weird person is that's blabbing your ear off?

It's sweet little me, Linda.

I am chef honors graduate of Escoffier School of Culinary Arts®, an ISSA® Certified Nutritionist, a certified kidney health coach, and a caregiver to my husband who has stage 3 kidney disease.

I have experience here, folks.

I was contracted with American Kidney Fund® for four years creating and testing recipes, providing educational content for their blog, and was an active advocate for Kidney Disease by meeting with representatives in my home state.

I have done informational webinars and cooking demonstrations for American Kidney Fund® and National Kidney Foundation®. I've been in Culinary Entrepreneurs® magazine, worked with dieticians to further client's kidney diet success. I also taught educational classes in my local area, I oversee three online support groups, and I do informational guest spots and cooking demonstrations for medical professionals wanting to learn more about the method and recommending it to patients.

If you want to know more, head on over to the next page.

I am going to go a bit in depth here. Grab a cup of coffee and settle in for a read.

If you fall asleep, that's fine (I fall asleep when I am reading too). Just pick up where you left off. Ready? Let's break this down for you...
