16 Foods High in Potassium

15. Salmon (and other fish varieties).

Salmon is quite possibly one of the healthiest meats you could eat. Considered to be a lean protein source, salmon goes well with a wide range of vegetables as well, making this an easy meat to pair with other side dishes. A typical serving of salmon, which is around three ounces (most restaurants serve at least four ounces), contains over 500 mg of potassium, which is unheard of when it comes to meat. Consider eating four ounce servings of salmon a few times per week to help increase your potassium intake every day. For best results, consider adding fresh potatoes and a fresh vegetable to make this a complete potassium rich meal.
