Kale and arugula are two superfood vegetables for individuals dealing with kidney disease. Kale, especially, has gained enormous market share over the past years and more people are starting to include it into their diets. With some adding kale in their salads while others snack on kale chips.
If you’re suffering from kidney disease, kale may not be the best option to fit into a renal diet due to its high potassium content. For this purpose, many may need to stay away from kale or enjoy it in minimal amounts. To confirm this, one must always check their potassium levels and consult with their doctor.
Arugula, on the other hand, is a nutrient-dense green that is low in potassium, making it a great option for a kidney disease diet. You can even saute it with some olive oil or just eat it by itself. Arugula also goes well with sandwiches and burgers.
Most people will need to restrict kale from their diet but arugula is a great alternative. It’s also considered to be a superfood and is loaded with beneficial nutrients that are good for your body.
These are some small changes you can make to your renal diet to spice things up.
