Picking Up Potassium

More than 65 million adults in America have high blood pressure, putting them at risk of heart attack, stroke, and kidney failure. According to the National Institutes of Health, one of the risk factors for high blood pressure is not consuming enough potassium. To maintain an adequate level, the American Heart Association suggests eating these potassium-rich foods:
• Dried Fruits: Raisins, prunes, apricots, and dates
• Fresh Fruits: Bananas, strawberries, watermelon, and cantaloupe
• Fresh Vegetables: Beets, greens, peas, tomatoes, and mushrooms
• Lean Meat: Turkey, fish, and beef
• Fresh Juices: Orange, grapefruit, prune, and apricot
