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!
Cukebook is a nutrition-forward resource that provides recipes, guides, and nutrition tools for people living with chronic kidney disease. Cukebook is backed by the non-profit “Culinary Nutrition for Kidneys, Inc.“. Once joined, members are given their own dashboard where they can save and organize recipes, create meal plans, and do in-depth nutrition research using our food analyzer.
