  1. This looks like a good stir-fry recipe. I was checking labels on the coconut aminos in the grocery store – the sodium content was similar to the “lite” (reduced sodium) soy sauce so I stuck with the low sodium soy sauce since it was less expensive.

      Makes sense! The sodium content of coconut aminos varies dramatically by brand! Keep an eye out for different brands and check their sodium content to see if you can find anything lower!

      Hi Joy. Everyone has different potassium goals for kidney disease. A “low” potassium diet is sometimes defined as 2,000mg of potassium per day. So, because this recipe is nearly an entire meal, I classify it as low potassium. But, it is critical to work with a dietitian who knows your lab values and current eating patterns to figure out what is best for you!
