So. As far as the spinach-mandarin salad goes. Are you all saying that it is okay to eat if prepared as the dietitian comment or what: Dietitian comment: 1/2 cup raw spinach has only 84 mg potassium. 1/2 cup cooked spinach has 419 mg potassium. For cooked greens the lower potassium choices are collards (213 mg), mustard greens (141 mg) and turnip greens (184 mg). It's recommended to limit to only 1/2 cup. Dietitian comment: Yes, that is correct. The key is portion control.
