Olive Oil

8. Olive Oil

Olive oil not only contains healthy fats, it is entirely free of phosphorus. It is especially good for people with kidney disease because they tend to have trouble maintaining a healthy weight. The fat in olive oil is mostly a monounsaturated version called oleic acid, which can also reduce inflammation. It is good for cooking because it can withstand high temperatures, but also great in salad dressings.
