Salt is not bad for you! The table salt that your doctor says to go off of because of high blood pressure. Table salt which has been processed, refined and ingredients added to it, like iodine. Iodine is needed in the body but only in small amounts and from natural sources. With as much salt as we use the amounts of iodine are causing thyroid problems.
You can switch to a mineral salt, Himalayan salt, sea salt and other things to cook with that taste great and actually have good benefits for you. But let’s face it, we have a very salt palate, so if you can start using less, your body will detox and get used to it. Less is more and your food will still taste great.
We use the brand Redmond Real Salt, that has the minerals intact. Costco also has a great option for sea salt.
