Here we are in Football Season~ one of America’s favorite sports AND time for some serious snacking!  Unfortunately, football isn’t associated with healthy dining.  But don’t be discouraged – just arm yourself with dietary options knowledge!  So as you get ready to enjoy the game this weekend, make plans to prepare recipes that meet renal diet restrictions – low in potassium, phosphorus, salt and saturated fats.

Here are a few helpful football season recipe tips we’ve found through Fresenius Kidney Care:

  1. Use a dry rub, rather than marinade, to prepare spicy chicken or turkey wings for tailgate grilling. If more seasoning is needed, serve with Weber or other low-sodium barbecue sauce on the side.
  2. Skip the beans, which are high in potassium, when making chili. Instead, try a kidney-friendly version with turkey breast, sautéed onions, bell pepper and celery.
  3. Serve salmon dip with crunchy veggies, such as celery sticks or carrots, for a tasty, protein-rich chilled appetizer that’s low in sodium and phosphorus.
  4. Spice up turkey burgers with diced jalapeno peppers, lime and smoked mozzarella cheese, for a low-fat grilling alternatives.
