I take my binders with this dish for breakfast.  Blueberry has a lot of benefits and is low in potassium.  Egg white protein gets you your protein without phosphorus.  The yogurt has phosphorus but it also has protein.  I get about 25 grams of protein from the powder and another ten grams from the yogurt.  The whipped cream has that dreaded sugar additive, but the phosphorus and potassium levels are low.  Stir this stuff up and enjoy!  I consider it renal friendly.   :yahoo; :yahoo; :yahoo; :2thumbsup; :2thumbsup; :2thumbsup; :clap; :clap; :clap;

I buy a big jug of protein powder, what it's 'made from I've no idea, never looked too close at the label other than to make sure it wasn't wacked out on Phosphorus or potassium.

I add two heaping teaspoons to my one large cup of coffee every morning.  I also add one heaping spoon of espresso mix (mocha).  The combination gives me my caffeine with a hit oc chocolate and smoothed out by the vanilla protein powder acting much like creamer.  Not Bad!  Before Dialysis I had a pot every morning so this is quite the change.

Lately I've indulged in a blueberry muffin.  Though I often think I should switch to something better.  I don't really need the calories in that flour.  Not sure how I would do with Blueberry Yogurt, I would have to buy a large tub of plain so I could set my own portion size, then add fresh berries.  That way I could switch between the different berries as I like them all.

It would be neat if I could lose some more of this jelly roll that hangs above my belt.

That sounds very good but I couldn't justify that much coffee in the morning.  I have to keep morning coffee consumption to 6 oz in order to have anything else to drink during the day.

LOL  I just have that ONE cup of coffe and the rest of the day I have to satisfy myself with a single mouthful of water at a time.

Today I cheated.  I drank a WHOLE can of Lemon/Lime soda.  First one in years.

It was GOOD!

I'll pay for that later. Like Monday's treatment.

I know the feeling.  I was not feeling particularly good one evening after dialysis so I convinced myself that it was okay to drink that entire 8oz of gingerale.  I did paid for it on the next dialysis day.  It was REALLY, REALLY tasty.

I found a 10oz insulated drinking bottle recently that I fill up with the current beverage of choice and take with me to dialysis.  Through trial and error I have discovered that I can drink as much of that as I want during dialysis as long as I quit an hour before treatment ends.  The first two hours will remove it along with whatever else I have drunk on my off day(s).  If I follow that rule then what I drank does not show up on the weigh out.

My clinic give us a cup of tea and cookies, and assume we are bringing a sandwich (they used to supply the sandwich before funding was cut). They then increase the liquid they take off to take this extra into consideration so that your dry weight is correct even with the extra input.

Every once in a great while I will pick up a second cup of coffee and a sausage egg biscuit on the way to clinic.  When I step on the scale I make sure to be holding that cup of coffee in my hand so to include that weight in figuring my take-off.

So far so good.

One of the main reasons I switched from hemo to PD was the fluid restriction.  I drink when I feel like it.  I cut down on my fluids by cutting down on my sodium intake.  Life is easier without the strains and cramps of hemo, but I do spend 10 1/2 hours or more a day doing dialysis.  That's a lot of time.  I actually feel really good because I'm exercising too when I'm not on the nod from anemia.  And every morning I have to take 21 liters of fluid bags to the garage sink and dump them.  I go through 3 big bags of fluid every night.  I really like Jane Fonda's level one aerobic video on youtube that includes stretching.  I'm trying to walk more to stimulate new vein creation.  I sprint in place now because I read it helps create new pathways for the brain.  I used to have a genius IQ, but I'm average at best thanks to my drug and drink abuse in my youth.  I'd love to become smart again so I can finish my two writing projects.  My wife just got back from Italy so I'm not lonely anymore.  I am so blessed to have such a wonderful wife.  Even though I am on dialysis I savor each day of life.   :guitar: :guitar: :guitar: :guitar: :clap; :rofl; :2thumbsup; :yahoo;

This sounds good.  :P  My husband loves blueberries. I'd love to make this for him. Can you give the measurements you use for the ingredients? Thanks for sharing!
