“My colleague, Edith Yang, did a wonderful job in simplifying the complexity of chronic kidney disease nutritional needs in this book. As a nephrology nurse practitioner, it is important to me that my patients work with a registered dietician who can guide them in making the right choices and options in their diet plan according to the five stages of chronic kidney disease. Not only are these recipes meeting the CKD nutritional needs, but they also give readers creative, delicious, and enjoyable meals to optimize their health. I am beyond happy to recommend this cookbook to all my patients.” —Mary Tu, MSN, NP-BC, nephrology specialty

“Edith Yang has created a remarkably helpful guide for those with CKD and their caregivers! Not only are Edith's recipes delicious and approachable, but her expert tips will help you build your knowledge of kidney disease, make informed decisions about your diet, and ease your worries.” —Lizzie Streit, MS, RDN, LD, author of Vegetable Cookbook for Vegetarians and A Complete Guide to Natural Vitamins
