Happy Monday! I hope everyone continues to be well. My husband is now working from home until further notice, my son and I are still at essential work jobs. I have CKD and am a nurse, so I am starting to feel a little unsettled at continuing to work. I will continue to work as long as I can and as long as I feel it is safe to do so. I will be looking at Family Medical Leave rules just in case. I have created a family care plan for my family to follow should I get sick. If you would like to know how to create one for your family use the contact form below to message me for a free meet and greet via email.
Now is a great time to learn more about Mindfulness and how it can help you in many ways. As I stated the other day I am now enrolled in a Mindfulness certificate course, so I look forward to offering that as an option for customers. I have seen several activities to help improve self-confidence, under Mindfulness topics. One of them is to write a love letter to yourself. I think this is a great base starting point for anyone trying to boost their confidence or self-image. Try it, and see how much you love and respect yourself.
Here is my family meal plan for the week of 3/29/2020- 04/05/2020 with modifications for my CKD.
Sunday 3/29/2020: Hot dogs. I did not eat this. I worked so I took peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Monday: Pork chops with brown fried rice and a vegetable. Pork chops for CKD is 3 ounces, 1/3 of a cup of brown rice and a vegetable. If you have potassium issues choose a low potassium veggie or only eat a 1/2 portion. If you are not diabetic or need to lose weight you can probably eat more than a 1/3 cup of rice.
Tuesday: Oven-baked chicken, sweet potatoes, and salad. Use low sodium seasoning to bake the chicken. 1/2 of a sweet potato or 1/3 of a cup of mashed sweet potato, and a side salad with low potassium veggies.
Thursday: Kielbasa hash brown soup with celery and carrots. I have not decided yet how I am making this so I will update after.
Friday: Grilled cheese and chicken noodle soup. I will not be eating this as I will be at work. So I will take a peanut butter sandwich and a banana.
Saturday: Sausage and cheese croissants, scrambled eggs and fruit. This is essentially breakfast for dinner. I will eat one croissant with a minimal amount of cheese and one breakfast sausage. If I have scrambled eggs it will be one to two eggs depending on how much protein and phosphorus I have already consumed that day. Fruit will most likely be a banana, but if you have potassium issues pick a lower potassium fruit.
