Favorite Swaps: Pineapple for Papaya

Favorite Swaps: Pineapple for Papaya

Your Favorite Favorites


Summer is finally here! And in the spirit of vacation, you Prenovaters seem to be favoriting lots of tropical fruits in the Food-Grading Engine. Your top favorite was the sweet, exotic papaya.

Papaya is low-sodium and is filled with nutrients, meeting 80% of your daily Vitamin C needs. But, its moderate level of potassium could interfere with a strict kidney diet. Instead, try a cup of raw Pineapple chunks. They'll offer you less potassium with a similar low-sodium/high-vitamin profile.

*Remember to eat fruit in moderation if you have diabetes. These sweet fruits with a high glycemic index might not be ideal for you.

Favorite Swaps: Arizona for Lipton Iced Tea

Favorite Swaps: Arizona for Lipton Iced Tea

Although bottled Lipton Iced Tea  was a community favorite,  Arizona Iced Tea is a slightly better match for most kidney diets because it has less than half the potassium of Lipton. That being said, the added sugars in both brands mean that neither is an ideal choice- especially for people managing type 2 diabetes along with chronic kidney disease.
