So I’ve been covering natural treatments for common ailments and the benefits of different foods so what about going one step further and discuss the benefits of what certain minerals and vitamins have on the foods. Let’s start with foods that are high in potassium. A few foods with the highest amounts of potassium would be found in bananas, lima beans, cantaloupe, orange juice, potatoes and yams, almonds, whole milk, salmon, black beans, apricots, avocados, brown rice, dates, figs, dried fruit, garlic, raisins, winter squash, spinach and wheat bran.
Foods that are high in potassium, have many benefits such as…
