Potassium-Rich Potatoes

Researchers have found white potatoes to be the largest and most affordable source of potassium of all fruits and vegetables; the cost of of potassium-rich white potatoes was half that of most other vegetables.

Potassium is a key electrolyte that maintains the body's fluid levels. The balance between sodium and potassium helps regulate blood pressure and heartbeat. Too much sodium and not enough potassium results in high blood pressure.

The study, presented at the American Dietetic Association's Food & Nutrition Conference, also found that people who consumed baked, boiled and roasted potatoes had higher intakes of potassium and vitamin C and consumed more total vegetables compared to those who did not consume potatoes.

Potassium-rich fruits include cantaloupe, bananas, oranges, strawberries, apricots, avocado, tomatoes, and papayas; vegetables, in addition to potatoes, are cabbage, brussels sprouts, bell peppers, okra, cucumber, eggplant, squash, and spinach. Other plant-based sources include lima beans, parsley, turmeric, nuts and seeds.

Fuel for Dancing

Crystal Silmi teaches and performs a unique fusion style of belly dance. She became vegan in reaction to the alarming reports about horrifying treatment of cattle and statistics on how factory farming is the key contributor to climate change. She feels strongly that choosing veganism empowers her; she feels she’s making a difference, and she is quick to point out its benefits. Crystal believes that her vegan diet fuels her very energetic lifestyle and career.

ďThe dancing that I do tends to be super fast paced and requires a lot of stamina. I dare to say that I am more fit and have more energy than many of my non vegan dance counterparts.Ē
