Lately, I’ve been thinking about electrolytes because my new fitness plan tells me–at the end of the day–if I’ve met my nutritional requirements.
I’m absolutely deficient in potassium. Who knew that one needs 4.7 grams a day!
That’s a lot of potassium. Apparently, I don’t eat many foods that contain potassium.
And I need to. Potassium builds proteins, aids the heart, breaks down carbohydrates, helps you grow, assists neurotransmitters, and maintains normal blood pressure.
I need more bananas. I need more nuts and beans. I need more spinach and maybe even some dried apricots. Why not throw in some mushrooms, potatoes, avocados, and fish?
I had no idea what I was missing until someone told me.
Living with flair means we eat our bananas and apricots. Those little electrolytes do big things.
What potassium rich foods do you love?
