Bring fun and flavor back to the kitchen!

Q&A with Celebrity Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr.

Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr.

Fresenius Medical Care is sponsoring Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr., star of the Food Network show “Big Daddy’s House,” who brings his passion for big, bold flavors and fun family cooking to dialysis patients as part of our Healthy Lifestyles initiative.

New BBQ Recipes and Food Tips for the Dialysis Diet

Chef McCargo has developed three new recipes that are ideal for feeding a crowd and appropriate for the dialysis diet. "These new dishes are ideal for get-togethers," says Robin Russell, lead dietitian for FMCNA's North Texas region, who often collaborates with Chef McCargo. "Getting out and about and being social is important for dialysis patients' quality of life, and Chef McCargo's recipes are fun, full of flavor, and people just don't expect that with such a restricted diet." Try some of these easy-to-make recipes this summer: Chilled Veggie and Shrimp Noodle Salad, Adobo Marinated Tilapia Tapas, and Smoky Salmon Dip.
