Double boil potatoes to remove potassium (one medium whole baked potato contains a whopping 926 mg of potassium – almost 1/3rd of the daily allowance for someone following a low potassium diet!). Peeling potatoes; followed by soaking or double boiling potatoes can reduce potassium by about half. Portion size remains important to consider as ½ cup soaked or double boiled potatoes will still contain ~200 mg potassium.
Chocolate is a high phosphorous food but this recipe uses only a small amount. If using frozen zucchini, thaw first. To freeze, simply grate raw zucchini into bags and freeze in 2 cups (500 mL) portions.
