Kidney Diet Just Got Easier: Free Online Tool Lends a Hand in the Kitchen   
November 28, 2011 – For people living with kidney disease, managing their diet feels like a full-time job. Today help arrived with www.kidneycommunitykitchen.ca. The Kidney Foundation of Canada launched a new online space called the Kidney Community Kitchen, designed specifically to reduce the burden of coping with kidney disease diets.

“The Kidney Community Kitchen is simply the best online tool I’ve used for managing the kidney diet,” said Patricia Treusch, who donated one of her kidneys to her 17-year-old son in 2007. “It meets the needs of those dealing with kidney disease and dialysis on so many levels. The first thing that comes to mind for me is the improved quality of life. It will help bring back the joy of healthy eating and sharing a meal, which is always important, but especially so during the holidays.”

Free and easy to use, www.kidneycommunitykitchen.ca provides a way to plan meals and track intake of critical nutrients. Some of its features include:

Dietitian-approved and kidney-friendly recipes
Drag-and-drop meal planner that tracks vital nutrients
Drag-and-drop, ready-to-go weekly meal plans created by dietitians
The ability to submit your recipes to be added and reviewed by dietitians
A way to ask nutritional questions of qualified dietitians
Forums for sharing stories, ideas and favourite recipes
Diabetic exchange amounts—good for people monitoring diabetic and renal diets
Tips, FAQs and other nutritional info about the kidney diet
More than 60 volunteers contributed hundreds of hours to the project through design consultations, recipe review, recipe testing and user testing. “Bilingual and ad-free, www.kidneycommunitykitchen.ca is a community effort that will make people’s lives easier and give them a better way to manage their diet,” said Paul Shay, National Executive Director of The Kidney Foundation of Canada.

The Kidney Community Kitchen was made possible by a generous bequest from the estate of James MacOwen Andrews.  Mr. Andrews had a keen interest in diet, nutrition and prevention of kidney disease and renal failure. He spent considerable effort researching and managing his diet as a result of his own kidney problems. He was frustrated that good information was hard to find. Thanks to his personal insight regarding the challenges of living with a kidney diet – and his generosity – www.kidneycommunitykitchen.ca is now available to help reduce the burden for others.

Anyone who is inspired by Mr. Andrews’s bequest and this new online resource to help reduce the burden of kidney disease can visit www.kidneycampaign.ca or www.kidney.ca/page.aspx?pid=658#bequest to find out how they, too, can make a difference.
