Well for one, I don't eat a lot of processed foods which is where a bulk of Americans sodium intake comes from. For two, it makes food taste good, and to me, that is high on the priority list. I just got back from Iceland and learned that it is known for having stellar sea salt. Most of the Icelandic salt comes from the Westfjords of Iceland using a centuries old method using geothermal energy and it's a 100 percent sustainable. Iceland sells a variety of salts; plain sea salt, licorice salt, birch smoked salt, berry salt, mixed herb salt, seaweed salt, rhubarb salt and lava salt colored with activated charcoal (shout out to Bubba).
Well after a week of eating fresh bread served with Icelandic salt sprinkled on Icelandic butter (don't even get me started on how good that stuff is! On a mission to find it now) I began thinking, what is good salt? Should I just stick to my course Kosher salt or is sea salt really that much healthier?
These are my favorites~
