“Get Healthier Kidneys In Minutes A Day Without Medicine, Without Costly Doctor or Specialist Visits, and Avoid Dialysis Now…”
Meal Plans Designed By Mathea Ford, Registered Dietitian, Food Lover, and Author of “Living With Chronic Kidney Disease: Predialysis” and “Create Your Own Kidney Diet: Stage 3 & 4″ and “The Kidney Friendly Diet Cookbook: Recipes For A Pre-Dialysis Kidney Disease Lifestyle” On Amazon…
If you have symptoms of kidney disease or you are care-taking a loved one with renal disease, you may not know what to do, and it’s understandable to be concerned.
But it doesn’t have to be a problem….
And you DON’T have to live the rest of your life eating bland, boring food!
When people come to me after learning they have kidney disease, I explain to them that they can get healthier kidneys just by changing their diet. They always look at me and say the same two things:
- I LOVE food. Please tell me that I don’t have to eat food that tastes like cardboard for the rest of my life.
- I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen. Actually I can’t spend hours in the kitchen every day. Who has time for that?!
This doesn’t surprise me. I actually discovered the need for convenient, tasty meal plans a few years ago in a taxi cab on my way to a conference for Dietitians.
Taxi Driver: “What are you in town for?”
Me: “I am going to a conference at the Marriott for Registered Dietitians”
Him: “Oh, you dietitians don’t know anything. You don’t care about what I have to do to eat healthy in my job. You have your plans, your charts, and your fake foods but you don’t even listen to what we say. You don’t understand that I can’t always eat perfect and I need to know how to make healthy choices in a lot of situations”
I was stunned, as I did not even know this person but he obviously felt I was part of a group of people who have not been helpful to him!
I had an Aha! moment that day and realized that medical professionals really do make it hard for people to control their diet while living in the real world.
Being someone who has kidney disease (or caring for a loved one), you know how frustrating it is when the doctor says – “Follow a low protein and low salt diet”.
Most people understand those guidelines in theory but the doctors very seldom explain to you HOW to do that. So you go home and you feel helpless and confused.
Simple rules like – “Stop eating red meat” or “eat more vegetables” are nice guidelines but not really clear enough to follow for a long time. How on earth do you do that while keeping up with everything else in life?
For instance, my taxi driver not only worked strange hours but he had to eat on the run in his car, too. He couldn’t just stop on a whim to eat lunch and magically have all the right foods.
He had to have a plan.
I decided then to make it my mission to help people by creating a meal plan that fits around real life and time constraints – and yet tastes yummy too.
The Solution: Delicious Meal Plans for Kidney Health
Designed as a pre-dialysis meal plan for real people living in the REAL WORLD, this plan meets the guidelines to make it a renal diet, but it does not limit you to tasteless, boring meals.
This weekly meal plan with recipes will help you to control your protein intake and you’ll feel full all day!
Here is what just one satisfied customer has said…..
“I love the recipes – and my husband’s improved lab results!”
I will tell you overall 95% of the items I cook we like. I have recommended your program to several people.
Because of what I’ve learned from you I am able to redo my personal family favorites.
My husband’s diabetic/renal issues have stabilized as per last doctors visits (October). I told the doctors what we have been doing. They were ok with it.
My husband who never liked fish has found out that he does that’s thanks to your recipes.
Thank you for all your service this past few months. I will still continue to recommend your program to others.

You won’t be bored, we have new recipes every week and a variety of meals – beef, chicken, turkey, vegetarian and fish.

If you want to know specifics, this plan gives you (at each meal – which includes the entree and side dish or dishes) a meal that contains less than 750 calories for the evening meal, less than 21 gm of protein, and less than 675 mg sodium and 750 mg Potassium. This provides the established appropriate amount for a renal pre-dialysis diet to eat. It follows the nationally recognized standards for your needs, and is what your doctor wants you to do!
Information on the meal plan is shown by recipe, and each grouping meets the restrictions for your renal pre-dialysis diet meal plan.
When you get your meal plan each week, you also get an itemized grocery list for the meal plan which means you save gas from less trips to the grocery store because you have a plan to follow. You also do not have to read all the labels and try to figure out right there in the store if something is OK for your diet – you’ll save time.
In addition, to complete the plan – you’ll get a selection template for your breakfast and lunch meals. You’ll see suggested foods (and amounts) that fit into the different categories.
It’s as simple as putting the meal together using the sheet and you are always ready to eat while keeping your diet in check!
The shopping/grocery lists are easy to take to the store, or just give to someone to shop for you. Cross out what you don’t need and your shopping list for dinners for the week is ready. The only things you have to add are the items you plan to eat for breakfast, snacks, and lunches.
Two grocery lists are provided, for each week. One is arranged by store location and one is done by meal. The first will allow you to shop for all 7 meals for the week and the second will give you the flexibility to choose just the meals you like and shop for those meals only.
This Menu Plan is RESULTS ORIENTED.
Here is what ANOTHER satisfied member said…..
“The Results My Dad Got Were Amazing!”
Dear Mathea: I just wanted to THANK YOU and let you know what happened. My father has been following your diet plan for a couple of months now. My mom has been using the recipes I purchased from your website. They both agree that the recipes are easy to prepare and very tasty.
Here comes the best part….. my Dad, who was at a GFR level of 18 when he started your diet plan is now at a level 23. His creatine level dropped over 1 whole point and his A1C level is now in the blue zone having dropped from 6.8 to 5.7 – which the doctor says is terrific!! My parents could not be happier!
My Dad is confident that he can avoid dialysis if he sticks with your diet plan. His doctors were so impressed, they asked for your information so they could share it with other patients.
If your diet plans work this well for a 78 year old man with high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney and heart disease, I can only imagine how well they would work for a younger person with less severe issues. You are definitely providing a valuable service to people who would have been lost in trying to figure out a diet plan without your direction.
It’s so nice to hear my Dad so excited about his blood results when only a few months ago he was frightened at the thought that he would have to go on dialysis. Please feel free to use me as a reference to anyone who questions whether or not your diet plans work. The results were amazing and we are hoping that my Dad’s levels continue to improve as he remains on the diet. Thanks again!!

You know that this is important to your health because you have done the research and understand that not following a meal plan that is specially designed for your condition is detrimental!
I understand that it seems like an overwhelming task just to plan your meals – NO MORE!
If you don’t sign up, you will go back to struggling every day and wondering if what you are eating is the right thing for you.
You may even progress to Stage 3 or 4 or even dialysis much more quickly than if you did not follow a well planned renal diet.
You don’t want to continue to spin your wheels and not move in the right direction to have a better quality of life, do you?
I certainly don’t want you to!
Looking forward to your success,
P. S. If you could do one thing to make your days a little easier and your health better in the same actions, this would be it! You can save time by having well designed meals laid out for you, grocery lists that include all the things that you need (in case someone else does the shopping), and a whole lot of peace of mind that you are on the right path to healing your kidneys… Get the pre-dialysis diet meal plans and get started now!
Q. What if I don’t eat a certain food?
A. The food plans are completely customizable. If you don’t like chicken or onions, no worries. There will still be plenty of options available for you.
Q. Is this the right program for me?
A. We have three different menu plans.
- Pre-Dialysis Menu Plan. (The menu plan on this page.) Choose this option if you want a kidney healthy diet, are not on dialysis, and do not have diabetes. Even if you are pre-diabetic, this is the menu plan for you as eating a kidney healthy diet is also great for your blood sugar.
- Renal Diabetic Menu Plan. This is for you if you are diabetic, want a healthy renal diet, and are not on dialysis. It is a more restrictive plan that should only be used by diabetic patients.
- Dialysis Menu Plan. Only choose the dialysis menu plan if you are currently on dialysis.
