I think it is human nature to strive for change and then find it is not easy to follow through. We need encouragement and reminders until our new endeavour becomes a habit. This is why I look at healthy eating as a journey. It doesn't happen overnight, but by adding one healthy ingredient at a time.
One basic ingredient that I have started using as part of a healthier diet is Sea Salt. This doesn't seem like a huge change but it took a little while before I was completely comfortable with it. Some sea salts are not white like regular table salt and they can clump together a bit. Now that I am used to it I don't even think about it.
Five reasons to switch to Sea Salt:
- Our bodies need salt. The chemical compound sodium chloride helps to regulate our fluid balance and helps our nerves and muscles to work properly
- Most table salt has been heat processed and stripped of it's natural trace minerals, bleached, then treated with a chemical anti-caking agent.
- For an alkaline diet sea salt is s great choice. It helps the body get rid of excess acid through elimination.
- Sea salt helps our bodies maintain a healthy electrolyte balance.
- Real sea salt contains an abundance of essential trace minerals, including calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, and iodine that are readily absorbed by our bodies.
