16 Foods High in Potassium


16. Clams.

In addition to salmon, clams are another protein source that are considered to be lean and a delicacy in many locations around the country. Clams are loaded with valuable vitamins and minerals and potassium is the highlight of these. Three ounces of clams (which is a good amount) contains over 500 mg of potassium per serving, which makes clams one of the best meats (in addition to salmon) to enjoy for increasing potassium content in your diet. Consider ordering fresh clams the next time you are out at your favorite restaurant or consider steaming or boiling a fresh batch if you have the culinary know how.
