One week meal planner

Being on a low protein diet can be tough, and often one of the biggest hurdles can be deciding what to eat. Being organised and writing down what you plan for each week is a great way to help you stick to your low protein diet. Once you have decided on your week’s meals and snacks, write yourself a shopping list to take with you to the supermarket.

NOTE: If you are prescribed a protein substitute or supplement by your dietitian, it is very important that you take the full amount of this alongside your meals and snacks
