We all know how important it is to eat healthy food when you have chronic kidney disease (CKD), but how do you do this when financial demands have never been greater? In our new Eat Well Spend Less magazine, we show you that it is possible to eat kidney-friendly meals that are also tasty and low-cost.
This free magazine contains a host of valuable cost-saving hints and tips, all geared to help you get the most out of a limited budget, along with delicious and very low-cost recipes developed by Kidney Kitchen chef, Lizzie Morey. Some of our recipes cost as little as 80p per portion to make and we show you how to safely store left-overs for another day.
The recipes cater for all tastes; along with family favourites such as cottage pie, spaghetti bolognese, you’ll also find warming vegetarian options like vegetable crumble and chunky vegetable and pasta soup (delicious served with a Kidney Kitchen wholemeal roll). Most of these recipes can be cooked, divided up into portions and frozen. Planning ahead and freezing meals means you will have a ready-to-pop-in-the-microwave healthy and tasty meal to eat after a dialysis session, when cooking a meal from scratch is often the last thing on your mind.
You will also find information on what other help is available to you and your family through Kidney Care UK to support you through these tough times.
