Who We Are

About the Creator

Hello! I'm Anthony Valentine and I have a chronic kidney disease called IGA Nephropathy. I was diagnosed with CKD in April 2017.

In 2013 I graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Culinary Arts & Nutrition, which makes figuring out this whole CKD diet a little bit easier.

On January 31st, 2019 I received a kidney from my mother, giving me a chance at life again. Post-transplant life will never be the same, and my diet has to be spot on if I want my new kidney to last. I created Cukebook to document my recipes, nutrition guides, and products that I love. Feel free to contact me with any questions, and I hope you join our growing community!
