Pass the salt, please!
I love the taste of pure, crystal salt, and those little white packets of processed table salt just won't do. Our bodies need a certain amount of salt daily, so why not give it the best you can? One of my fave choices is a light pink coloured rock salt from the Himalayan region, called (appropriately) Himalayan salt. Don't think any sleep was lost on naming that one. haha.
It's actually a very ANCIENT crystal salt, in fact, of the world’s salt crystals, Himalayan Crystal, at 250 Million years old, is the oldest. According to experts it is among the purest Salt Crystals in the world.
Located deep below the earth’s surface, Himalayan Crystal Salt was created when the primal sea—the place where scientists believe all life originated—was dried up by the energy of the sun and then compressed over millions of years by the pressure of the land masses that formed on top of it. 100% pure Himalayan Crystal Salt contains at least 84 of the same naturally occurring elements needed by the body and in the same proportion as in the body. Its inherent minerals and trace elements are available in colloidal form, which means that the body is able to absorb necessary minerals and elements.
So, no need to go without great flavor in your cooking, add a little of this to your food, and you'll be hooked forever, like me! =)
