I get leg cramps at night and I heard that potassium and calcium would help. I've been taking supplements and I think they've been helping.

If it is to be, it is up to me.

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

My father-in-law is on dialysis. He has to limit his potassium, so, here is a list of high potassium foods:

arthichokes, beans(pinto, kidney, peas, navy, red, black, ect.), beets(fresh), brussels sprouts, kohlrabi, lentils, mushrooms, parsnip, potatoes, pumpkin, rutabaga, spinach, succotash (who wants to eat that?), tomatoes, vegetable juice, winter squash, yams/sweet potatoes, apricots, avocado, bananas (of course), cantaloupe, casaba melon, dates, dried fruit, honeydew melon, kiwi, mango, nectarine, oranges, papaya, pomegranate, prunes, pummelo (what's that?), strawberries, star fruit(which he is supposed to avoid all together), peaches, raisins, and figs.

These are the highest in potassium. Hope this helps.

Yes, bananas are the best, but oranges and orange juice is also good. But the link probably has mony that none of us would even think of.

Here is a link that will give you some ideas. Bananas came to mind and potatoes with skin. Of course you'd have to leave off the sour cream and butter but they are good with some salsa.

As I look over my meals and totals each day I am seeing that I am to high in sodium and not eating enough foods with potassium in them. Does anyone know what foods are high in potassium?
