Salt…for all seasons

selWe’ve all heard of people who are solid and reliable and referred to as the “salt of the earth“. It’s kudos to them, for without question salt is one of the world’s humblest, most  valuable gifts. Esteemed for centuries, common table salt (or NaCl as it’s referred to chemically), is a savoury flavour ‘must’. Today, discreet salt-seekers are prone to choosing sea salt or rock salt (like Himalayan pink salt) (my favorites). Salt derived from the sea or ground from a rock salt like Himalayan salt, can deliver health-boosting trace minerals or elements like potassium, magnesium, zinc and calcium, while not ‘taking over’ food but adding more delicate flavour than regular iodized salt. Sprinkle some on a bowl of plain popped corn or in your next stir-fry.  EcoWatch and Healthline provide a good overview of various salts on the market and what to expect in terms of benefits.

Aside from salts we eat, mineral salt blends for aching muscles and a home-spa treatment year-round are a great health treat. Look for natural blends and beauty products that provide rich minerals directly from renowned sites like Israel’s Dead Sea, (I love Ahava products). The Body Shop’s Mediterranean Sea Salt Body Scrub is another awesome body treat. Don’t write off salt. Discover its goodness — for mind, body and soul…
