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.

March is National Kidney Month

In recognition of National Kidney Month, Fresenius Medical Care is bringing Chef McCargo to several clinics across the U.S. to promote the importance of eating well, and show how people on dialysis can enjoy flavorful, delicious meals and still stick to their renal diet.  Chef McCargo notes that while patients are used to hearing about what they cannot eat, meals don't have to be boring or bland.  His "flavor of bold" cooking features fresh ingredients and seasonings.  Working with Fresenius renal dietitians, Chef McCargo has developed many recipes that dialysis patients and their families will enjoy 

Here are some of the recipes featured during National Kidney Month:

Buffalo Chicken Salad Stuffed Cucumber Cups

Crunchy Lemon Herbed Chicken

Jalapeno, Lime, and Smoked Mozzarella Turkey Burger

Smoky Salmon Dip
