Garlic and Sea Salt has moved!

To all of my readers, I have decided to combine my two blogs so Garlic and Sea Salt will now be a part of my Fragrant Vanilla Cake and all of my savory posts and recipes will be a part of that page.  I will keep this page here so that the past recipes will be available, but visit my blog, Fragrant Vanilla Cake for future ones!  Here is the link:

Salt is needed for life to begin as well as live and grow.

So since it is essential for living, I think that we should only eat and use nothing but pure whole unrefined sea salt for best nutrition. The biggest difference between salts to me would be refined or unrefined. I have come to find that some salts say 'Sea Salt' but are still refined.
Salt is an antimicrobial and anti-fungal. Our health starts in our gut/stomach. The balance of good bacteria and bad bacteria is the key. In terms of health unrefined salt is necessary to keep your insides pure and not feeding the bad bacteria.

I personally love the taste unrefined sea salt brings to foods! Replacing regular refined salt with whole sea salt in recipes can actually bring down your sodium intake. I start by replacing 1/4 tsp per 1tsp in the recipe and then an additional 1/4 tsp (to taste) after it is prepared.

As far as price goes, I do not think it is very expensive. I buy my unrefined salts from www.saltsworldwide.com rather than the grocery because most 'Sea Salts' are still refined. The prices are not overly priced but still not as inexpensive as regular table salt. The difference is in the nutritional value, health benefits as well as the taste, even by using less.
