Stage 3 Kidney Disease and Diet: What can I eat?

Hello, mimcg. When my hubby was still alive and the kids were still home there would've been no way for me to adhere to a vegetarian renal diet. I grew up in a hunter-gatherer culture which relied heavily on venison and small game which now are a no-no for me, although they weren't back then. Now that I live alone I can cook the way I need to.

Venison is not the same as beef neither is small game. I ate them growing up. As long as animal flesh, at the top of the list is beef, is not your daily protein, you should be okay. I do not know what is in beef that makes it so unhealthy, it could be the way they are raised today, on the fast track to get them to the stockyards and not grass fed. If anyone wants animal flesh it should be less than a fourth of the meal. I eat some cheese (grass fed), plain yogurt, and a small amount of hummus, nuts, seeds, eggs, chicken or shrimp. No one else has to do this. (I only have to cook for one, me.)

When I was in the hospital with an open wound, unable to eat regular foods, the doctors were surprised how fast I was healing just from the amount of plain yogurt and cheese I was eating. So they must be good for me, don't know about anyone else. I know yogurt has "stuff" in it that is good for the gut and that is where my surgery was.
