Can you explain the usage of the renal food choices ? What's half a veggie low potassium? 1 fruit? Dietitian comment: The food choices are a system similar to the diabetes diet exchange system. A meal plan is created with designated number of servings from each food group. Each group has a defined amount of protein, potassium and phosphorus. The user follows this plan instead of tracking nutrients in each food they eat.

At first, I thought I read the recipe wrong when I read there was an apple with the eggs. Since the pan was hot, I did not use the oven. Taste Great.

I really enjoyed this! I used 2 eggs and a little less than a 1/4 cup of substitute egg white, no milk, used 3 tablespoons of water, used cooking spray to cook the eggs; cooked apple and onion in tablespoon of butter and added to the eggs once they were partially cooked and sprinkled some Ms. Dash Table Blend, added a little of the cheese, then sprinkled the remaining cheese once I folded the eggs and put it in the oven. I had a toasted english muffin with Braswell Red Bell Pepper Jelly, and water as my beverage. Putting the other half of the omelet in the fridge for tomorrow's breakfast. I will definitely be making this again!

Just signed on today. First impressions are great. I used the weekly planner and was surprised how liberal the meals were. Although different than what I am used to, I am going forward with their plan. I like the information in the recipes too.

hmm, never would have figured an apple in there, but not bad at all. i can switch with other fruit or vegetable too i guess.experimenting healthily.

great but isn't this too much sodium and potassium and protein? Moderator comment: Considering the calorie value and ingredients, no becouse if you add some bread and a beverage it makes a meal that is still in the kidney-friendly range. If you need lower protein you can reduce the eggs to 2 insead of 3.

We loved it! First time I read this recipe my husband crinkled his nose but had agreed it's a keeper. We used egg substitute and PAM spray & made it a scramble vs. on omelet in the oven.

This was absolutely delicious! I eliminated putting it in the oven by lifting the edges and letting the uncooked egg run into the pan. Next time I will try using swiss cheese and perhaps substitute a pear for the apple just for variety.
