Kidney Health Week - Shop Savvy 25 May 2016

Did you know that eating plentiful vegetables, legumes, fruits and wholegrains can keep your kidneys healthy and prevent kidney stones?

May 22nd-28th is Australia's Kidney Health Week.

So let's put some of the above facts in to practice and care for our kidneys.

Here are some recipes you can try this week to up your veggies, legumes, fruits and/or wholegrains intake:

Simple Sweet Corn Soup

Nothing's better than a warming soup on a cold night.
It's the end of season for fresh corns but you can make them equally tasty with canned corns.

Savory Greens Stir Fry
Savory Greens Stir-Fry
You can whip this up in under 10 minutes; great for a weeknight dinner.

Red Lentil Burgers with Kale Pesto

I forgot to mention that the 28th of May is National Burger Day.
And yes you can enjoy a burger and care for your kidneys at the same time.
Kale's on sale at Coles this week, but you can also use spinach, basil, or other greens of your choice for the pesto. Try them on a bed of brown rice like the recipe states, or use some wholegrain burger buns to celebrate National Burger Day!
