Potassium From Other Foods Beside Vegetables

Posted on: January 7, 2009

If you are not the veggie type of person, there are many fruits that contain a high amount of potassium. These are especially true in the berry and melon families. Watermelon, raspberries, bananas, Logan berries, papaya, mandarin oranges, and strawberries are all great sources of potassium. If your are a fish eater, cod, flounder, salmon, and bream have huge amounts of potassium and if you have a silver spoon, lobsters, shellfish, and crab is a more expensive source but a good source of potassium.


To throw a little bran in your diet that has good sources of potassium you an try: rolled oats, whole wheat, brown rice, whole rye, amaranth, bulgar, millet, kamut, buckwheat, teff, and spelt. For meats you have a wide variety of potassium sources. These include beef, chicken livers, meat paste, rabbit, and moussaka. With all these choices it is easy to put a great meal together that is potassium rich.
