Here is link for foods high in potassium:

Here is a link for foods high in magnesium:
www.algaecal.com/magnesium-foods.html

The nutritional information is probably an estimate or average of these particular foods so make sure when you enter the food information in the food tracker to search for Ex: California Navel Orange rather than Valencia Orange. You can look @ the little stickers attached to the fruit in order to figure out what variety of fruit or veggie it is. There's not a big difference but I prefer to be exact.

"The beauty of the Gospel message is not that we shall not suffer, but rather that regardless of the level and intensity of our suffering, God is always there by our side, and will always give us the strength to stand and not fail. In fact I would go as far as to say that the most effective witness to the lost, is the life of a suffering Christian, that overflows with joy, peace and love, rather than bitterness and self-pity.

If you are using salt in your diet...use Lite Salt.
It contains 1/2 the sodium, but give gives you 350 mg
of potassium for 1/4 teas. Regular salt does not contain potassium.

I love the nutrition tracker. It gives me alot more information than just a calorie count. I manage to stay in all my ranges except I am falling WAY short on potassium and magnesium even with adding in my supplements. I know I need more potassium because my blood levels tend to be low because of my high blood pressure meds. Any ideas? I'd have to eat a whole tree of bananas to get my potassium from the 200's to the 4000's.
