      the best way by far is to just use lite salt. bonus is that you reduce your sodium intake while increasing the amount of salt you can use on your meals.

      completely sodium free is not a good idea. minimum should be 30/70 sodium/potassium.

    Same way keto people get theirs
    Avacado
    Mushrooms
    Spinach

    Very versatile ingredients that aren't calorically significant and don't require an entree made around then.

    As for entrees though porkloin or fish like tuna or mackrel.

    But yeah a lot of food trackers don't really have accurate potassium info so you could be getting enough already. It's really not a hard micro to get enough of if you eat mostly fresh foods.

    The Rdi for potassium is totally made up. It just so happens healthy whole foods tend to be high in potassium. If you're hitting your other micros then don't even worry about potassium so long as you're hitting half or more of the supposed Rdi

    Why do people always say bananas are high potassium when you have to eat like 10 to get your daily needs?

      Because they're high relative to most other foods. No food is super high in potassium all by itself.

    Dude, you really don't need to worry about getting "optimal" levels of potassium. Most people only get around 800-1500mg a day and they're fine.

    Each large potato is 1.6g. That's the absolute, cheapest way to get it. Eat it with a bit of butter, binch of salt yum.
