Don’t hold back on the sweet potato casserole this season, because sweet potatoes are considered a potassium-rich food and provide you with fiber, protein, and antioxidants as well. Aside from the classic casserole at Thanksgiving, you can enjoy this vegetable mashed, roasted, as fries, in a soup or chili, or cut up and sauteed with some of your other favorite vegetables.


12. White Beans

Potassium per 1/2 cup, cooked: 500 milligrams (10.6% DV)

All types of beans are healthy because they are nutrient-dense and contain high levels of things like fiber and protein, and many types of beans are considered high in potassium too. White beans fall into this category with over 10% of your daily value of potassium with each serving, and they’re mild in flavor so they can be cooked into any soup or chili for added nutrients.
