Delish Dinner Ideas for Dialysis Diets

It’s a good idea to go for a protein, a vegetable and a healthy starch for dinner. You can’t go wrong with comfort food. The more satisfying it is, the more likely you are to enjoy eating it. And remember, you can have eggs any time of the day. They are the perfect food. So there’s nothing wrong with a nice frittata for dinner. And for those of you who are on dialysis, replenishing protein after treatment is especially important. So dig in as soon as you can after your treatment.
