I know, there are plenty of this recipe already posted, but this one is put out by the Alberta Kidney Foundation, and is specifically formulated for people who are in renal failure. This is lower in Potassium, therefore people like my Sweet EddieBear can enjoy a slice of pumpkin pie also. This came from Food Power: A book for kids with kidney disease.
