    Try kale chips. theyre easy to make.

    Lay kale on a cookie sheet with a little olive oil in a 300 degree oven and sprinkle with salt pepper and if you wnt a little garlic powder and powdered rosemary.

    Apricots are very high in potassium :

    apricots: 1 cup (175 g) has 427 mg Potassium , 79 calories
    bananas: 118 g has 422 mg Potassium , 105 calories
    dates: 1 cup (147g) has 964 mg Potassium, 414 calories -- this is basically candy, but I love them too.

    Every calorie counts when you are trying to get lean.

    2 cups of apricots would be 854 mg potassium at only 158 calories.

    Plantain chips!
    1 medium plantain has about twice as much potassium as a banana.

    Hey Y'all, thank you sooooo much.
    (Probably the happiest social interaction I'm going to get today before leaving for a 4-hour project management class.)

    Maybe I can stop by Sprouts grocery store on the way home and see if they have plantains, kale chips, and dried apricots.

    About two weeks ago I was looking for apricots at Whole Foods. I didn't see them. I did buy a jar of apricot juice which has about 8 servings.

    That does not sound correct.
    Besides, tomatoes are in the nightshade family which can be problematic for some people.
    I try to stay away from nightshades.

    I'm just curious why you mention snack foods. If you're so concerned with your potassium intake you should be including the suggestions above in your regular scheduled meals, not in something you will improvise between them.

    I do include potassium-rich foods in my regular scheduled meals. Snack food for me just means fun to eat.
    Surprisingly, I do not snack much.

    However, in my Saturday class when we're going through 50 to 75 questions, the instructor offers us a big, thick dark chocolate cookie from the Hilton Doubletree guest desk and I accept. He told us when we take our 4-hour exam to bring some protein to put on top of our locker and when we take a break after 90 minutes, have some protein to avoid burnout.

    OK, back to when I regularly snack.

    After a long day, when I come home and eat a low animal protein dinner and watch American Ninja Warrior, I want to snack immediately after dinner - or extend the dinner into snacking.
