Thus the National Institutes of Health recommend getting potassium from food, avoiding supplements except at your doctor's direction.

|Allowance of Change|
|How do you feel about change? Do you resist or do you surrender? Many of us resist change because we fear the feeling of “not being in control.” However, the very dynamic nature of life means that things are almost always going to change at some point. So how can we embrace these changes? Perhaps it’s as simple as adjusting our attitude to one where we willingly allow and welcome the change to happen.
|Steamed Asparagus with Lemon Butter|
|Category: Side Dishes|
Description: Lemon with Asparagus make a wonderful zesty team.
Asparagus is an alkaline food which is rich in protein but low in calories and carbohydrates. Although it's available all year round, asparagus usually is most found and best in spring and is harvested when it is about 6 to 8 inches tall. It is an excellent source of potassium, folic acid, vitamins A, C and K, and traces of vitamin B complex. A good source of dietary fiber, asparagus is also rich in niacin, phosphorus and very low sodium. And my favourite health benefit of asparagus and certainly most impressive is that it is one of those few vegetables that actually has the calcium and magnesium in the ideal ratio of 2:1.
