                                                     Eat Right for Chronic Kidney Disease!


Limited resources, negativity, and fear plays an important role in nutrition and Kidney disease.  My personal experience and  passion to  serve others  motivated me to become actively and passionately involved in, It Only Takes 1 one.  It is the goal of this organization to inform, advocate and collaborate to improve to improve kidney health while encouraging others to save a life and be a donor.


You   may need to modify what you eat to manage your chronic kidney disease (CKD).  You should try to eat a balance of different types of food, with the right amounts of protein, carbohydrates, fresh fruit and vegetables.  Another part of a healthy diet is to maintain portion control.  One of the best things you can do to prevent health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes is to limit fluid, eat low protein diet, limit salt, phosphorous, and potassium.  We, at It Only Takes 1 One, take pride in offering samples of yummy smoothies, and juices. Cook foods from scratch instead of  "fast" foods or frozen dinners and canned foods.  Use spices, herb and sodium -free seasonings in place of salt. Choose heart-healthy foods to help protect your blood vessels, heart, and kidneys.


Choose Healthy Snacks-Skip salty chips and choose  Pump up snack time  with salt free popcorn,  deviled eggs, tuna salad, or shrimp with pasta.  Desserts~ Chose sherbet (sorbet) or gelatin.   Beverages~ Drink water, coffee, tea, low sodium mineral water and lemonade, fruit juices and fruit juice.  Avoid cured, smoked and pickled meals such as bologna, salami, and corn beef as they are very high in salt.
