Mostly Lovin’: Himalayan Pink Salt


OK so I am aware that many of my fellow “bloggers” have been bleating on about extolling the virtues of Himalayan Pink Salt for quite some time. Yes, I am somewhat late to the party but I finally had to find out for myself just what all the fuss is about so I wandered down to my local whole foods store.
Pink salt contains the vital minerals such as iron, potassium and magnesium, which are I am told essential to good health. “Mined in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan by Tribal virgins (OK, so I made that bit up), it contains an almost identical set of elements as those in our body – and get this…in the same proportions that occur in our blood. Apparently it is just this high mineral content which causes the distinctive rose pink colour. As for flavour, there is a real roundness to the taste which definitely enhances foods. It seem to draw out the true essence off foods i.e. French fries are quite simply divine sprinkled with the pink stuff. Guacamole is sublime but don’t take my word for it. If you like me have a tendency to be a little heavy-handed with the white stuff make the switch to pink and you won’t look back! x

I love Himalayan pink salt too! Blended with Epsom and Dead Sea Salt it also makes a wonderful bath soak! Great blog V!
