Q:

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!
A:

It is the time to be grateful for all the good in life with family and friends. It is also the time to share delicious traditional food! Sometimes, this holiday feast can be large in portion and loaded with sugar, salt, fat, etc. But we can bring a healthy Thanksgiving dinner to the table if we make a few changes to the recipe!

 

Turkey

Classic main course for Thanksgiving! Here are some tips to make the popular turkey dish a bit healthier. Choose natural fresh or frozen turkey over ones that are seasoned, basted, or pre-stuffed to avoid having too many additives. Herb-roasted turkey can be a good choice. If a stuffed turkey is preferred, consider adding lemon, apple, onion, garlic, rosemary, and sage.

 

Pumpkin Pie

Another popular and traditional dessert on Thanksgiving. Tasty, but this one can be tricky for people with kidney problems. Kidney Kitchen has offered an alternative pumpkin dessert recipe so everyone can join the celebration! If pumpkin pie is a must-have dessert, limit the portion size.

Therefore, muscle mass and diet can affect creatinine generation. For example, a muscular person or a person who cr

If the urine shows pink, red, or even brownish-red color instead of pale yellow, the first thing is to recall is the discolored urine caused by red pigments from medications or food like beetroots and red dragon fruit. If not, maybe it’s time to think about the possibility of blood present in the urine.   Blood in the urine is just a symptom, and sometimes it is not possible to see blood in the urine with naked eyes. A lab test is required to check for red blood
