Salt: Go with the Pink!

Call me crazy, but my favorite variety of salt is not white. It’s pink. Light pastel, pretty pink. But I don’t just go for this salt because it’s “pretty”. I love Himalayan Pink Salt because it has lots of flavor and has a few nutritional benefits that I love! Over 84 minerals, trace elements and a wide variety of therapeutic properties (though unconfirmed) Find out more..

“Himalayan Pink Salt has a rich mineral content that includes over 84 minerals and trace elements such as: calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron. This salt is recognized for its beautiful pink color, high mineral content, and its therapeutic properties. ” - Mountain Rose

Now don’t start thinking that this salt is exotic, rare and expensive. While yes, it’s more expensive than table salt – it isn’t bad. In fact you can find Pink salt grinders for sale at Trader Joe’s for under $4. Freshly ground pink salt will add flavor and minerals to your food.

SaltWorks says “Himalayan salt has long been praised for its healing benefits; and is known for stimulating circulation, soothing sore muscles, helping to reduce acid reflux, lowering blood pressure, and removing toxins. “

You can buy pink salt in extra fine -> extra coarse grained varieties. You can even buy varieties specifically for beauty uses (pink salt scrub anyone?) Salt Works price for pink fine gourmet use salt is $19/5lb bag.

I am always noticing that my favorite healthy brands (like DrCow raw cashew cheese) use pink salt in their ingredients.

So give pink salt a try! It might be your new ingredient fave.

Other fun salt varieties include :

*smoked salt
*grey salt
*black salt
*herb-infused salt
*dead sea salt
* and of course plain old table salt..

Get creative with your recipes and try a new variety of salt. You may be surprised by how the flavor changes and enhances based on the variety of salt you use.
