Hi…. Last year on June 9th 2006 I donated a kidney to a friend. I’m working on going totally raw for my health and trying to keep my BP low. I have no problems with the morning meal…. just throw everything in the blender(fruits, veggies,ground flaxseed and a tray of ice). Finding it a little harder with the evening meal. I’m still accustomed to cooked food for that meal, but I have found lots of raw recipes that have caught my eye.
Hi Dyan! What an amazing journey you have taken. Have the Dr.’s given you any specific instructions pertaining to diet? Do you have to eat a lower protein diet or avoid any vegetables in particular? I have a dehydrator and make things that might as well be cooked like nature burgers and cookies. I am new to this as well so getting organized is the hardest part for me right now. The taco meat is a great recipe that is like regular food, and the soups are just like the real thing. Good luck with everything!
All they said was don’t take ibuprofen(causes kidney damage even in healthy kidneys) and no contact sports. I ask about the perfect one kidney diet, but they said just eat healthy. I have given up meat… and I’m about 50% raw. I also get about an hour of walking in everyday. I feel great and after a year the scar is almost completely gone.
