Hello! I am new to Chowhound and need help with meal plans. I was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease (38% function) and was told I have to go an a low protein and low potassium diet. A couple months ago I did see a dietician hoping that she would give me some meal plans to follow but just got a list of low potassium foods. I am not the best meal planner and need help. My nephrologist said I can only have 60g of protein a day. He also told me to stay away from dairy, nuts, melons, oranges, tomatoes, Potatoes, chocolate, beans, bananas, prunes, raisins, processed meat (he recommended plant based), pasta (even though I do have 2 cups cooked with pesto now and then), colas, no other bread besides white, corn and some others. I'm getting a little tired of rice cakes, rice krispie treats, mashed cauliflower and cucumber sandwiches. Any help would be appreciated!
