Creative Cooking for Renal Diabetic Diets

By TS Jordan, eHow Contributing Writer

A renal diabetic diet is helpful for someone suffering from a combination of kidney disease and diabetes. Requiring a delicate dietary touch to manage both conditions concurrently, the renal diabetic diet focuses on consumption of slow-digesting carbohydrates (fruits, veggies and whole grains), combined with restrictions on protein, sodium, phosphorous and potassium. While cooking under these limitations might be difficult for some, creative chefs will view renal diabetic dieting as a welcome culinary challenge.

      Renal Diabetic-Friendly Mac and Cheese
   1. Prepare the time-honored favorite of macaroni and cheese, tailored slightly to allow for compliance with a renal and diabetic diet. Boil two cups of whole wheat elbow pasta (or your favorite type of noodle). Whole wheat pasta has a lower glycemic index than refined flour pasta, making it more suitable for a diabetic diet. Combine the cooked noodles with a small jar of Kraft Pimento Cheese Spread made from cream cheese (to keep the sodium and phosphorous low enough for a renal diet). Season with a jar of green chilies (if you enjoy your food spicy), along with sprinkling on plenty of pepper as desired. One serving (a half cup) of this meal contains just 227 millgrams of sodium, 74 mg of phosphorous and 6 grams of protein, making it an easy-to-prepare meal that's a perfect fit in your diabetic and renal lifestyle.

      Chili and Rice
   2. Prepare chili and rice for a dinner that the whole family can enjoy, regardless of whether they are confined to a renal diabetic diet. Simply brown a pound of extra-lean (90- or 95-percent lean) ground beef in a pan, stirring in a cup of diced onion and a cup of diced green pepper into the pan as the meat cooks, which will soak up the small amount of fat and flavor the dish. Once cooked, pour the meat, onion and pepper into a Crock-Pot, adding in a can of salt-free tomato paste, a half cup of pinto beans, three cups of water and two tablespoons of garlic powder. Stir well, allowing the mixture to simmer for several hours before serving. Before dinner, prepare three cups of brown rice. Place the brown rice on a plate and pour a serving of chili over it. This recipe makes seven servings of chili, with each containing just 15 grams of protein, 63 milligrams of sodium, 144 mg of phosphorous and 497 mg of potassium, and is slow-digesting enough to keep your blood sugar under control.
