Add a lean protein of your choice (eggs, chicken, turkey, pulses, beans, lentils, reduced-fat hummus) and your favourite salad vegetables (peppers, radishes, cucumber, sweetcorn, cooked broccoli, red onions, spring onions, peas, grated carrot). Mix and enjoy with a low fat dressing.

Kidney-friendly homemade soup* served with a wholemeal roll
Opt for high-fibre ingredients like vegetables, beans and lentils. Shop-bought soups tend to be high in salt, so try making your own.
To pack your meal with flavour, without adding salt, try adding spices, different types of pepper or a spoonful of toasted sesame oil to your soup.
