Hello foodies. Happy memorial day in America and Happy Monday to everyone. So today I am fascinated by Salt.
It’s literal, and metaphoric meaning. Salt helps heighten the taste of things. My first real memory of salt was when I was about 7 years old. I heard the story of LOT’S wife turning around and turning to salt. I remember I did not want salt in my food because in my odd little mind, all the salt we use was a part of lots wife LITERALLY) lol. YAH! kids do have a wild imagination. Growing up in Nigeria we mostly used sea salt, but then iodized salt came into our system and became a “thing” and now that I am here, I am back to sea salt because for me it’s about eating as natural as possible when you can help it and when it is affordable. As I grow and learn about foods, their properties and effects on our body, my discovery about idolized salt versus sea salt made me choose sea salt as my new salting choice. It took some time to get used to the measurement as with sea salt, it seems you need more that with iodized salt. I use SEA SALT for one simple reason: it is salt in and from it’s natural state, that is not processed. And that works for my body.
So do share with us. Do you use sea salt or iodized salt?
Have a great week. And remember in all that you choose to nourish your body with,
