Celtic Sea Salt - Why I Use It

I've talked here on the blog quite a bit about avoiding processed foods. I think a lot of us are trying to avoid processed foods lately. But have you ever thought about whether or not your salt is processed?

If you're using typical table salt, you are likely not benefitting from it, and it may even be harmful. Why not switch to a high quality sea salt that has many benefits and still, of course, will flavor your food?

This is the brand I  use.  I buy a big bag online and it requires a special grinder because it is a coarse, moist salt. This is the grinder I use.

Here are some reasons why you should switch to a high quality salt, such as Celtic Sea Salt:

  • Celtic sea salt is not processed
  • It has a delicious, subtle saltiness that is different than regular table salt
  • provides over 80 vital trace minerals
  • helps balance electrolyte levels
  • no additives and nothing is removed to alter it from its original state

This is a more expensive salt, but you will use less of it.   Also, since most people use salt every day, why wouldn't you want to use a salt that has health benefits? It's a no-brainer! There are other high quality salts such as Pink Himalayan.  If any of you use a sea salt other that Celtic, I would love to hear what it is and why you use it!
