So... has this list been of much use to you?C PERKINS wrote:i'm a vegan baby still - 3 mnths, 12 days, 14 hours... and not finding it easy as I used to survive on a junk food (albeit vegetarian) diet for most of my adult life.
It was therefore no consolation when the health shop owner, provided me with HEMP POWDER and QUINOA as staples, and per my request for something just delish to nibble on, presented me with dried go-ji berries.Ack!

I have been feeding my salt craving by guzzling buckets of these.
The unrefined sea salt that I've seen contains 90% sodium chloride. Not much lower in sodium than refined salt, so I wouldn't recommend anyone 'eat loads' of it.Papaya wrote:You might want to try switching to unrefined sea salt. This stuff is grey, not white, and feels sort of damp because it doesn't sprinkle. It can come coarse or fine. It has much lower sodium, so you can eat loads without getting into the risk category. It also has other good stuff - refined table salt has 2 elements, unrefined sea salt has about 83.
Lots of people purposely eat 1/2 teaspoon day minimum. I've switched to it completely and glad I did.

You will easily get all the above minerals from a good diet. I like salt but other than improving the taste of my dinner I don't think it's particularly beneficial even in its unrefined form.
I noticed that Goodness Direct lists this salt as 'organic'. Salt is an inorganic compound, a mineral; it comes from neither plant nor animal. How the f*** can it be considered organic in any way?!

are you serious? I thought it was common knowledge that 'organic' isn't a describer of the chemical compound of food, bur rather a describer of the manufacturing of it. otherwise all food would be organic, and surely that's not the case, right?
