    Our community suppose to be getting together & have BBQ ..(pork) sandwiches,baked beans,chips.....everything bad.....this afternoon.....towing with what to do....what to eat of this.....oh & there will be lots of desserts to choose from.......... Making me feel down right now thinking about it..... I'm one of these---- I'm either on or off..... If I start eating whatever I want every time there is a occasion I'm so afraid I'll be completely off! I want to go -- but struggling with anything good to eat already on the plan....... Any suggestions fellow kidney friends??

    good morning Jpet, a cookout sounds fun :-) I hope you enjoy it, good to get out and visit with people. GFR of 35 isn't too bad, it means your kidneys are still functioning, just not at peak. really, you can eat whatever you want, in MODERATION.............. that is the key. your lab reports will tell you what to cut back on if necessary.

      I find if I make one of my favorite dishes it helps . I can enjoy small amounts of foods offered and fill up on my safer foods this way I can share ,enjoy and visit without feeling so left out.

        We had a turkey burger from Carl's Jr. He got his without tomato or pickle and very little sauce. I forgot to tell the girl to put his on a regular bun though instead of that grain bun they use. oops....

          Today I made him thinly sliced pork loin chops (these things were paper thin) cooked them up in some rice vinegar and no salt seasoning, steamed rice with chopped onion inside and sliced cucumber with lemon.

          For dinner he is on his own because I will be at work until 10:00pm.

            Grilled Salmon with lemon, fresh dill and pepper
            55-80 cal. per ounce--50mg sodium per 3 oz.(no salt added)

            Fresh Green Beans with sauteed mushrooms, onions and garlic in a little olive oil
            Gr. Beans - Low potassium group, low calorie vegi

            White Rice--not yet sure how I will jazz it up

            Gonna splurge with a dessert of sliced strawberries, rhubarb sauce and cool whip.
            Strawberries and rhubarb are both in the low potassium group. A little REAL sugar added.

            Note-my potassium is within a healthy range
