Kidney Friendly Meat Loaf Recipe – Make your own!

Kidney Friendly Meatloaf

Hi Folks, this week I want to share our recipe for a kidney friendly meatloaf with you. Many of the recipes you find are for less common items, but, almost everyone likes and eats meatloaf.  Our recipe is quite delicious, especially with our “meatloaf sauce”. The screenshot below shows a serving size of 120 grams. That’s about 4 ounces and is a bit much for me. I eat about 85 to 90 grams, or about 3 ounces of meat. It goes great with a baked potato or rice, and a vegetable such as green beans. And by the way, the meatloaf sauce tastes great on the rice or baked potato.  This is a great (and healthy) meal to have as your main meal.  It easily fits within most people’s dietary limits.  See the tracking information below.

Tracking A Kidney Friendly Meal

I also put together a “tracking” of a meal consisting of: meatloaf, meatloaf sauce, rice and green beans.  Assuming you are on the standard 2000 mg Potassium, 2000 mg Sodium, and 1000 mg Phosphorous, you have only used a quarter of your quota for one meal .  If you choose a small baked potato instead of rice, it will add about 425 mg of Potassium to the total.

  • Calories        320
  • Protein            19
  • Phosphorus 249
  • Potassium    527
  • Sodium         512
  • Sugars             10

Notice that I have only had 90 grams of meatloaf, not the standard serving size of 120 grams.  Quantities and weights are easily changed.

    Hi Theresa,

    Have you checked out our nutrition list? it’s free and gives all the nutrient values for many common foods. Also your husband should have a dietitian as part of his medical team. He or she should be able to help you develop a menu that fits, not just tell you how much or little to eat.

    Check out our nutrition list here:

    Good Luck, I know how hard it is.

    PS. My apologies for delay in responding, I was sick. 🙁
