This is not a book, it is a pamphlet. I was very disappointed. If the index had been included in the description, it would have helped.
I have been searching for a cookbook that actually cares about people with renal dysfunction. The authors are a nurse and her sister who has renal disease. It's obvious that they know what is healthy and more importantly, what still tastes good. There are pictures of every recipe, which really helps when you are making the dishes. I've now made about half of the recipes and I've loved how simple and delicious they are. I can't thank the authors enough for this thoughtful, creative, and delicious collection of recipes!
First, I am new to CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease). Ms. Stanley is on hemodialysis -- and the diet for patients on dialysis is different from people who are trying to manage CKD with diet. I was disappointed, first, by the lack of Nutritional Facts (i.e., amount of potassium, phosphorus and protein) for the recipes provided (especially since Ms. Stanley collaborated with her sister Lolo, a cancer nurse, to write the book, both of them know the importance of defining amounts of potassium, etc., in recipes/foods for CKD and dialysis patients). Second, it is a very skinny book (40 pages of recipes, and each recipe takes an entire page) for the price. I am returning it. It may help people who want a few extra recipes if they are on dialysis, but there is nothing in this book that a beginner using the internet could not find.
