Cruciferous vegetables are power foods for your kidneys

Cabbage, kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower are all from the cruciferous family of vegetables. They’re on the alkaline side, making your diet less acidic and providing less pressure on your kidneys. Plus, they are loaded with vitamins A and C, as well as calcium and other important minerals. Try cauliflower or Brussels sprouts roasted to bring out their natural sweetness. Raw cabbage can be tossed with a simple vinaigrette for a low calorie and flavorful side salad. You can also replace salty and fatty snacks with healthier alternatives like kale chips.

By keeping these convenient and healthy foods on hand, you can enjoy a wide range of meals and snacks that are good for your kidney health. It is also important to keep to a varied and healthy diet that avoids the foods that negatively impact your kidneys. By watching what you eat, you can improve your kidney health and avoid complications.

To get you on the road to eating more of these types of vegetables, our recipe of the month is Roasted Balsamic Brussel Sprouts!
