Vegetarian diets can meet the higher protein needs of a dialysis patient.

Protein-enriched foods for vegetarians on a kidney diet may include:

  • Meat analogs (meat substitutes such as soy burgers, tofu, hot dogs and deli slices)
  • Soy products (tofu, tempeh)
  • Beans and lentils
  • Nuts and nut butter
  • Eggs and egg substitutes
  • Dairy products
  • Grains

The protein and nutrient content can vary for tofu products, soymilks and meat analogs. Check product labels for the specific nutrient content per serving (such as protein, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, etc.). Powder and liquid protein supplements may be an option for patients with who are unable to meet their protein needs by food alone.
