The American Association of Kidney Patients Adds More Delicious Recipes to its Cookbook
Tampa, Fla.: – The American Association of Kidney Patients (AAKP) is pleased to announce eight additional recipes to the first edition of the AAKP Delicious! cookbook. AAKP developed the recipes for individuals with kidney disease and their family members who want to improve their health and manage their illness.
The recipes are meal solutions for kidney patients regardless of their disease stage. Each recipe and portion size is careful reviewed by renal dietitians to ensure they are low in sodium, potassium and phosphorus and are either high or low in protein. “Few things bring people together like a flavorful, homemade meal, and meals cooked at home are often more healthy and cost-effective”, said AAKP Executive Director Gary Green. “The recipes in AAKP Delicious! are created for the entire family, not just the patient.”
There is no such thing as a one fits all kidney diet. Each meal within the recipe book is labeled whether it’s healthy for a CKD patient (non-dialysis), dialysis patient, transplant patient, diabetic patient or a combination of conditions. Patients are encouraged to adjust each meal to fit their health condition and cooking tips are also included on recipes to help get you started. AAKP insists a kidney diet needs to be individualized for each patient and nothing can replace the advice a patient receives from their registered dietitian or doctor.
The AAKP Delicious! recipe book, which was developed in partnership with Embed Inc., is $10 each. This one-time fee covers the cost of all the recipes created for the first edition of this book. To place your order, visit www.aakp.org/store.html or call 1-800-749-2257 ext.3. People who have previously purchased the recipe book will automatically receive the eight new recipes free of charge.
This kidney-friendly cookbook is proudly sponsored by AbbVie and its educational materials have been favorably reviewed by Renal Dietitians, a dietetic practice group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
AAKP is the voluntary, patient organization, which for more than 40 years, has been dedicated to improving the quality of life of kidney patients through education, advocacy and the fostering of patient communities. The programs offered by AAKP inform and inspire patients and their families to better understand their condition, adjust more readily to their circumstances, and assume more normal, productive lives in their communities.
