Though apples do contain potassium, they are not at the top of the potassium rich food chain. One small apple contains 159 milligrams of potassium, which is a good start to adding to the recommended daily dose of potassium of 1600-2000 milligrams.
If you are looking for a power packed potassium diet add acorn squash, which according the Mayo Clinic tops the list at a whopping 896 milligrams of potassium. Additional healthful choices include lentils, green leafy vegetables such as spinach, citrus fruits, melons, raisins, and yogurt.
