“approximately 98% of Americans are not meeting the recommended potassium intake. A Western diet is likely to blame, as it favors processed foods over whole plant foods such as fruits, vegetables, beans and nuts”

Bananas are good for potassium

I have no idea. I’d like to think yes

My problem with your poll is that I dont keep track of how much potassium I eat. I think a lot of people may not keep track either.

I only took about half of that recommended potassium and felt great afterwards yesterday.
I had two bananas, two baked potatoes, beans and oat cereal

I get my vitamins and minerals tested every 6 months and only add supplements as needed

That sounds like a lot of potassium how do you even get that much??

I’ll try to see how I feel after two cans of beans, two bananas, baked potatoe and rest with celery to get that 4700mg

“Heating causes the cell walls of vegetables to break down more readily and release vitamins and minerals such as potassium . … Cooking releases minerals, increasing the amount of potassium , calcium and magnesium available for your body.”

I’m gonna start eating more potassium foods. I bought a bunch of bananas today, peeled all 4 of them, but they were all rotten and bruised inside. So I binned them. Tomorrow I’ll get more from a different place.

It’s interesting about potassium, thanks for posting.
