A potassium deficiency means that the cells, nerves and
muscles of the body will not function properly.
Banana, a great in-between snack, rich in potassium and easy to consume during "potassium draining" sporting events like marathons and long bicycle rides.
Broccolli has hefty portions of potassium so add to your diet along with sweet potato, cherries and salmon.
Concoct your own salad using avocado pear, almonds, some chopped uncooked spinach - all natural sources of potassium and mix with whatever takes your fancy like cherry tomatoes and chopped onions.

The poor potato, instinctively labeled as fattening, contains twice as much potassium as the banana.
Potatoes are healthy!
Not only are they low in fat, but one medium size potato contains only one-and-a-half servings of carbohydrates (dieticians recommend 4 daily servings) - meaning they are not too high in kilojoules after all (498 kilojoules a potato).
This inexpensive vegetable provides fiber if eaten with the skin and contains high levels of chromium and potassium which aid brain function.
They don't contain wheat so are a great alternative to bread.
