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.

Hi Prenovaters! This week, you must have had sweets on your mind as Chocolate Brownies topped our Food-Grading Engine searches. If you're looking to satisfy a sweet tooth while managing your kidney diet, try Vanilla Wafers instead. Eight vanilla wafers will give you 25% of the potassium of one medium chocolate brownie and much less sugar.
