Big Changes

Yup, that’s right, I’m in Buffalo NY!

Recently I have gone through some life changes that have forced me to move and rather quickly. I only had less than a day to pack up and get here. I’m still in transition and I won’t be living on my own for at least several months. What that means for the blog is staggered updates as I won’t always have access to the kitchen to cook and photograph as I would like to.

I am going to take this time to ask people for recipes and their ideas. If you want to see your recipe on the blog either email me or click on Questions up above. 

I will also be featuring recipes from other dialysis recipes sites just so you have something to enjoy while I am getting things together. 

Keep being Awesome!

Big and Bold Taco Chicken Pizza and Guacamole

Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! Or as my friends call today; “Revenge of the 5th!” Just Google it. 

I was so excited when I was contacted by someone who represents Chef Aaron McCargo and asked to post his dialysis friendly recipes on my blog. I never thought I would be posting other peoples recipes on here but to be honest I love this guy! I mean it’s not often a celebrity chef takes time out of his busy day, even though he is being paid by Fresenius Medical Care, to come up with renal safe dishes that taste amazing.

Since the entire goal of this blog is to get really great tasting recipes that are renal friendly in the hands of dialysis patients so they will actually stick to their diet, I have decided to post his recipes.

Walking to a Transplant

I weigh 121 kg, or 266 lbs.

I have never had an issue with body image. That has just not ever been something that bothered me. What does bother me is the fact that my Nephrologist, my Nurse Practitioner, and my Nutritionist all tell me that I have to lose weight to get on the transplant list yet no one knows how much weight I am suppose to lose.

I don’t have very many options when it comes to exercise because I have a couple of herniated discs in my lower lumbar. The option that I do have that seems the lowest impact is, you guessed it, walking!

I have had this idea for a while now but I didn’t really think about it until two years ago when I saw a flyer for the local annual Kidney Walk.
