Ok, can’t wait to show you what the foods hidden here are! And I can guarantee you that some of them are going to be a real surprise!
So let’s start with the top 5!
The number 5 healthiest food you NEED in your renal diet is… let’s see what’s in here… oh, wait… this is… oatmeal!
Yes, I really like oatmeal!
This superfood is packed with essential minerals, vitamins, fibers and antioxidants.
Oatmeal is the high-fiber morning meal that every kidney disease patient needs!
It’s benefits are so many you cannot forget to eat it for breakfast… or for a quick snack.
Oats have shown to improve your metabolism, aid with digestion and to help lowering blood cholesterol levels!
Oats are incredibly nutritious, they are actually a whole grain with a very well balanced nutrient composition!
The incredible health benefits of oats are mostly due to a nutrient of which oats are really rich: Beta-Glucan.
What is Beta-Glucan?
Beta glucan is a soluble fiber, probably one of the healthiest thing you can add to your diet ever, according to recent studies.
When you eat oatmeal, this miracle fiber partially dissolves in water and forms a thick, gel-like solution that will improve the health of your guts.
Now, having healthy guts is incredibly important for kidney disease patients.
Gut health can help control everything from your weight to your mood to brain health, inflammation and immune function.
Not only that, but cholesterol levels and blood sugar and insulin response are directly correlated to the health of the guts.
It is clear how this can impact the health of the kidneys too:
if you eat more oats, you will have less cholesterol and high blood pressure, the second leading cause of kidney damage, and less blood sugar, the first leading cause of kidney damage.
One cup of cooked oatmeal contains 158 calories, 27 grams of carbs, 6 grams of protein, 3.2 grams of fat and 4 grams of healthy dietary fiber. Oatmeal has just 142mg of potassium per cup, so it’s low in potassium.
It also has 20% of the daily recommended intake of Vitamin A, 18% of calcium, 77% of iron, 35% of vitamin b6 and 15% of magnesium.
Now, this is a lot of vitamins.
And, if you think that oats are too bland for your taste, don’t worry: here’s a very simple recipe to make them tasty! Actually this is how I eat them in the morning
I hope you liked my recipe… let’s go on with our top 5!
The number 4 healthiest food for our kidneys is… cauliflower!
This superfood is considered one of the healthiest veggies in our diet for all the benefits it has for our health: Cauliflower contains unique plant compounds proven to reduce the risk for cancer, heart disease and kidney disease.
Cauliflower is full of antioxidants: the more the antioxidants in your diet the better, since they can prevent and slow down the damage done by free radicals, reducing inflammation and damage done by kidney disease. So you want a lot of antioxidants in your diet.
And remember that plant based antioxidants are the best, not all antioxidants are created equal.
And cauliflower is a great choice when it comes to foods rich in antioxidants.
It’s very low in calories but rich in vitamins.
One cup or about 107 grams of cauliflower contains just 27 calories, 5 grams of carbs, 2 grams of protein and 2 grams of healthy dietary fiber.
It also contains almost every single vitamin and mineral that the body needs: there’s 85% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin C, 10% of vitamin B6, 20% of Vitamin K, 14% of folate, 8% of manganese and 4% magnesium.
It is also low in potassium, since a cup contains about 320mg.
And, if this isn’t enough, cauliflower is great as a substitute for other, less healthy foods like pasta or rice. This is especially useful for people suffering from diabetic kidney disease.
So let’s see how you can make the cauliflower rice, an incredible tasty and healthy way of eating cauliflower.
So basically you eat cauliflower instead of rice… less calories, less carbs and more health!
Now, the next food is going to be a bit of surprise, really can’t wait to show it to you.
The number 3 on our top 5 is… wait what is this… pasta? It can’t be pasta, right?
Well, this isn’t your regular pasta. This is a special kind of pasta, formulated just for kidney patients:
What makes this pasta so healthy for people with kidney disease?
This is aproteic pasta! Aproteic pasta is a zero or very low protein alternative to pasta that just as tasty as regular pasta!
But it’s a product specifically made and developed for people suffering from kidney disease.
So it’s not just protein free, it also has a reduced quantity of sodium, phosphorus and potassium.
So you get the taste of your favorite pasta dish but without the added protein!
And this is really useful for your kidney health because reducing protein intake is one of the best way to improve creatinine levels and kidney function.
There are studies proving this. We know that protein metabolism is one of the biggest threat to the health of the kidneys.
So, those looking to improve kidney function should always be very careful with the quantity of protein ingested. Because protein will put a great burden on the kidneys.
Now, eating less protein will usually mean renouncing to eat something we like, like maybe a steak or a nice roast beef.
But with this aproteic pasta all you have to do is to replace your usual pasta with this and you already removed some protein from your renal diet.
This will lighten the burden on the kidneys and if they don’t’ have to work so hard, they will last longer. And they will have a chance to improve.
Now, to make a pasta dish really suitable for kidney disease patients buying low protein pasta is not enough: there are a couple of other things to consider…
but let’s go on with our top 5! Things are getting hot right now, we are at the number 2!
Let’s see what’s in here! Eggplant! One of my favorites veggies, eggplant is the number 2 healthiest superfood! And you absolutely need to add this veggie to your renal diet!
Well, technically eggplant should be considered a fruit, since eggplant is a berry by botanical definition.
But what makes eggplant so healthy for our kidneys?
Thanks to The high amount of antioxidants and phytonutrients, Eggplant has a very powerful anti-inflammatory, depurative and detoxifying effect on the kidneys.
And all these benefits come at a very low calorie count, raw eggplant only has 20 calories per cup.
But it’s the detoxifying effect I want to focus on: eggplant is particularly rich in a very special flavonoid called nasunin.
According to several studies, nasunin fights inflammation and oxidative stress on the kidneys acting as an iron “chelator” and O2 scavenger. What it basically does is to help the body getting rid of poisonous agents and heavy metals like arsenic, mercury and lead.
So eggplant will help the body preventing a buildup of toxic substances and this of extreme importance for our kidney health.
1 cup of eggplant contains just about 20 calories, 4.8 grams of carbohydrates, 2.5 grams of fiber, and just 188mg of potassium and 2mg of sodium.
It also provides 5% of the RDA of vitamin B6, 3% of Vitamin C and 2% of magnesium.
Want to know how to make it delicious? Here’s my favorite eggplant recipe, the baba ganoush!
Yes, the baba ganoush is something absolutely worth a try!
