This slow cooked, all-in-one dish is both savory and sweet and is an ideal meal if you have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). The pork gets its wonderful fall flavor from the roasted carrots, onions, apples and cranberries and a little bit of thyme. Not only is this recipe low in sodium, potassium, and phosphorus, it is full of fiber and a great source of lean protein. Enjoy!
