How can I make this with egg whites? With Stage 3, I try to avoid whole eggs. Also, can we use 1/2 of an Avacado? Again, the potassium is rather high (which has been a constant problem for me.
You could definitely just sub egg whites for whole egg. I’d probably just add an extra white to make up for the missing volume of the yolks. If you cut the avocado, it might be hard to keep it together since there will be less “goop”. Honestly, mayo would be a much lower potassium option than the avocado, if potassium is a concern for you!
it would be really nice if you could adjust the quantity I am just one person and a one person household
Thank you for the suggestion!
Eggs can be eaten about 2 x a week at stage 3 renal disease. Of course limited salt. I miss the salt. Making salmon patties for lunch. Water crackers & Brie cheese.
This looks delicious and I’ve always loved egg salad but I’ve been told not to eat eggs with Stage 3A CKD?
Everyone has different nutrition recommendations for kidney disease. Here is an article that goes over how a “renal diet” is different for everyone! My guess is you are able to fit eggs in to a diet for CKD stage 3A, but certainly ask your dietitian what is best for you!
