I was at an event recently and came across the 1 chef  (One Pound)  basically quick recipes costing a pound (currently 1.30 dollars)..

Although not kidney recipes some could certainly  be adapted..  Check it out:

Also he has a new book coming out early next year with 60 new recipes.

Hello JW77,
Thanks for posting it and I was just getting excited about this great idea of recipes to cook 1 or $1-meals and so I tried to access the site,
but unfortunately my (rather aged) computer did not manage to get any access to the site... ???
Best wishes from Kristina. :grouphug;

Link worked on my laptop running Windows XP.

Try it another time Kristina, as it could have been a server problem anywhere between you and the site.

The kidney friendly part of this is everything is made from scratch so with a bit of oversight you can decrease the added phosphorus and the like.  Much better than the typical recipes here in the US that would use something like dried mushroom soup as a base which is loaded with minerals, salt, sugar and the like.

That first picture shown in the link looks like baked or scrambled eggs stuffed inside eggplant. My husband loves eggplant! I try to cook what I call "skillet dinners". I simply scramble some eggs in a skillet and add whatever sounds good (beef, onions, bell pepper, hamburger, spices). I like to keep things quick and simple. In other words, I am not a gourmet cook.

Long ago people ate more soups, and were much healthier.

It is a great excuse to sort of clean out the refrigerator, chop and toss it all in the pot, add water, boil and stir, season to taste.   Wonderful!

Modern society doesn't have the time to spend in the kitchen.  Everyone is too busy running to work, keeping up with the Jones, whatever.  So we eat whatever is quick, easy, and usually not so good for us.

A lot of people live in the fast lane - even if they don't want to be! 

I am fortunate that I usually have nice, healthy dinners, made-from scratch, meat raised by my family, gluten-free (because of my sister), and plenty of vegetables.  But, the only reason I do is because my husband & I moved in with my family to do NxStage!  My mom or sister generally cooks; I don't have the time.

I'm currently struggling with quick, easy, healthy lunch options - particularly for my husband.  He had a kidney stone this summer - turns out his calcium is really high.  The doctor wants him to lower his sodium intake (sodium & calcium interact).  There go the deli meat sandwiches, and the salsa/chips, and the Chinese place across from his work!  Even the "low sodium" canned soups are ridiculously high in sodium.  I think we settled on PB&J for now (and I'll check the sodium on the PB).  Funny thing is: I called his doctor's office and spoke to the nurse.  Asked her if his pTH level had been checked and she sounded surprised I would ask!  And no, they hadn't checked it.

To avoid the sodium from pre-packaged deli meats, my husband likes to make cold beef sandwiches from leftover pot roast. Same thing with leftover meatloaf. I always cook with leftovers in mind.  :P

At my local Kroger and Publix, they sell low sodium chicken lunch meat that has my nutritionist's stamp of approval. Major life saver.

Wife doesn't like me to cook much.  I never learned to cook 'small'.   Seems no matter which pan I start with I always end up with the BIG one, full.   Good thing I like left-overs.  She doesn't.   Baked Potato soup the other night.  Son and G'son came over.   Son pigged.  I still have right about a gallon left.

Local grocery has fryer chickens on sale, three days only, limit two.  I told her we both need to go all three days and stack a bunch in the freezer, and I can roast 3 on the grill.  Left over chicken I like!   She just looks at me funny, as if there is something wrong with me.

Dr appt today.  A1C is fine, but cholesterol has climbed by 100 points.  Not enough chicken and fish.   Too much beef and pork.   Sorry, I eat meat.   My protein is great.   I need to go fishing, a lot more.    Maybe that would also lower my blood pressure.
