Food Swap Friday – Salt

Are you someone who adds salt to your meals? Salt is easily the most used seasoning – in fact, without it, most things would taste very bland.

But like with everything, moderation is key. Another crucial measure is what KIND of salt you use. Yes, all salt is harvested from salt water… but thats where the equality ends.

Salt not created equal

I personally prefer to use Sea Salt, or Pink Himalayan Salt, as those still retain their trace amounts of minerals, as opposed to table salt, which has been stripped of any trace minerals during processing. Table salt also contains additives, which I try to avoid as much as possible.

It’s a pretty simple swap we have here. Yes, prices are different, but I am of the belief that it is better to pay a little more for something better, without additives, than paying less for something that not only contains additives, but has been stripped of any benefits it may have.

What’s your take? What do you use for cooking?
