LOS ANGELES, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- U.S. actor, singer and composer Isaac Hayes has written the forward and is promoting a cookbook geared for people with chronic kidney disease.
Following the death of close friend and fellow soul music legend Barry White from chronic kidney disease, Hayes said he hoped the his promotion of the cookbook would give people with chronic kidney disease and their loved ones a good reason to revive their passions for food and life.
"Kidney Friendly Comfort Foods: A Collection of Recipes for Eating Well with Chronic Kidney Disease," is a cookbook that gives a low-phosphorus spin on some old favorites, according to Hayes, who is also a celebrity chef.
Diet is a key part of managing kidney disease and an associated condition known as hyperphosphatemia -- high blood phosphorus levels.
The cookbook is free and is available by contacting (866) 896-6152 or via the Web sites PhosphorusControl.com or isaachayes.com.
