Are you getting enough potassium in your diet? Many people don’t think about this valuable nutrient too much, but failing to get the potassium you need leads to many significant health problems. Such problems include high blood pressure, arthritis, digestive problems, infertility, and even some forms of cancer.
The good news is that there are many delicious ways to get the potassium you need to stay healthy. If you’re dining at our Bothell Japanese restaurant, keep an eye out for the following strong sources of potassium:
- Seafood: Most fish and other forms of seafood are strong in potassium, with the best choices coming in the form of tuna, halibut, salmon, and other fatty fish.
- Soy: Unprocessed soy, like the kind you might find in inari sushi, edamame, and agedashi tofu, is a good source of potassium.
- Green Vegetables: Leafy greens are rich in potassium. Try some seaweed salad, or any sushi with nori.
- Avocado: Avocados are one of the best sources of potassium. One avocado is known to have more than twice the potassium found in a banana.
