Rationale: The normal magnesium level is 1.6 to 2.6 mg/dL. Common food sources of magnesium include avocado, canned white tuna, cauliflower, green leafy vegetables such as spinach and broccoli, milk, oatmeal, peanut butter, peas, pork, beef, chicken, potatoes, raisins, and yogurt. Bacon is high in sodium. Oranges are high in potassium. Test-Taking Strategy: Focus on the subject, foods high in magnesium. Read each food item and recall that bacon is high in sodium and oranges are high in potassium. Review the food items high in magnesium if you had difficulty with this question.
