An Alternative for Table Salt from Suzanne Kuss, SOYA200
This is a recipe that I make, along with some information for those interested. I use this instead of regular table salt, because of the important minerals that it contains.
It’s drilled into us that we need to get our vitamins, but what isn’t stressed is that you ALSO need many important minerals to be able to absorb the vitamins you are ingesting!
Himalayan pink sea salt isn’t your average table salt. Hand-harvested and minimally processed, it contains 84 minerals and trace elements that are highly beneficial for the body including magnesium, calcium, copper, potassium and iron.
Dulse Flakes (seaweed flakes) are a beneficial super food. Dulse is high in Vitamins and Minerals – Specifically Vitamins B6, B12, A, Iron, Potassium, Phosphorus, and Manganese. It helps heal poor digestive systems, rebuilds and maintains all glands in the body, cleanses the body of heavy metals. It’s also high in calcium, fibre, and protein. It helps support healthy brain function. For those who are dealing with hypothyroidism, it’s very high in Iodine for healthy Thyroid Function.
Seaweed Salt is a nutrient rich food that can be used wherever salt is called for. Use it in your cooking or as a “table salt”
The seaweed in the salt will actually help in cooking. For example, if you cook your beans or lentils, put it in your water and it will help to break down the enzymes for easier digestion.
1 cup of pink Himalayan Sea Salt
1/8 cup of dulse flakes. (or any seaweed)
Mix up in a food processor and let dry in oven at 200 degrees for 2 hours. Remix and place in an airtight container to ENJOY! This is a much healthier alternative for those who like to use salt.
