In brief: DASH diet
(google dash diet for hypertension).
The specific dietary restrictions depend on how severe your kidney disease and what your labs look like. Generally, we recommend: low sodium (salt), low potassium (depends on blood potassium level) and low phosphorus diet. Some experts recommend a low protein diet but this is controversial.

In addition to that mentioned above; it is best to take less salt, less proteins, but plentry of micronutrients including vitamins (especially vitamin D) and minerals.
