DaVita®, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. (NYSE:DVA) and a leading provider of kidney care services, announced a collection of recipes sure to satisfy kidney-friendly diets and taste buds this holiday season. The “DaVita Holiday Kidney Diet Delights” cooking collection includes nine kidney-friendly recipes submitted by DaVita dietitians and is available for download at no cost at DaVita.com/cookbook. “Because of the extensive array of food, the holidays can be difficult when an individual or a member of their family is following a kidney diet,” said Sara Colman, registered dietitian with DaVita. “We put together this holiday cooking collection because it provides kidney-friendly recipes that will make holiday meal planning a breeze.” People with chronic kidney disease must control their protein, phosphorus, sodium, potassium and fluid intake. Diet tips found in the cooking collection provided by Colman and other DaVita dietitians can help patients stay healthy while navigating holiday get-togethers centered on food and drink. In addition to the downloadable holiday cooking collection, DaVita also provides nearly 30 Thanksgiving recipes on DaVita.com including salads, mashed potatoes, stuffing, desserts and hot holiday cider.
