  1. Hi Lauren! Haha I love how you explain your dad’s look! Been there too 🙂 now my family just goes along with me and LOVEs the salt on all food. My favorite way…prepare yourself its going to be strange..plain! After I do my sauna I NEEd salt, so I just pour a little into my hand and eat it 🙂 other then that, I like salmon roe brined in sea salt..and fermented veggies!

  2. Hey I love this giveaway, so great and I love the stuff here on your blog.
    I’m a regular salt user and I love mixing up my own varieties too with spices and flavorings. This would make a great base for some new salt mixtures for me! Thanks!
    BTW, I have a recipe contest going on this month if you’re interested in entering. I think your stuff would look great! 🙂

  3. I think I got similar looks from co-workers when not only talking about the importance of eating egg yolks for health, but also then to salt them with sea salt on top of that…oh boy! Lol! Would be ever so happy to win a bag of the stuff!

  4. I almost flipped when I saw the price of a 16 ounce bag of Real Salt at my local HFS……bought it anyway….over $8.00, but well worth it. Am interested in finding a more economical way to purchase, but I am concerned that it may “lose its savor” if I get too much and do not use it fast enough. Other than that, Real Salt and Celtic Sea Salt are all that we use. Real Salt pours the best….

  5. We’ve just been introduced to Real Salt, so I’m still experimenting. The crunchiness was a bit off-putting the first time I tried it, so I’ve been a bit hesitant to introduce it to my very picky husband. We need to make healthy changes, so I’m looking for ideas.

  6. Sea salt is my salt of choice when it comes to eating. I use it in everything: salad dressing, smoothies, desserts, main entrees, and so much more. My 7 year old recently discovered how good it tastes on a fresh cucumber and he likes to bring them to school as a snack..finally! He wanted nothing to do with cucumbers before LOL 🙂

  7. I’m just learning about Sea Salt – so I’m not sure what my favorite way is! I’m re-educating about the healing powers of food & trying to erase all the traditional SAD (Standard American Diet) rules that aren’t working. I’d love to try it.

  8. I love salt on everything so I’m not sure what my favorite way to eat it is, but I just had whole milk yogurt with my sauteed broccoli last night and I drizzled EVOO and real salt on it. Delicious!

  9. HI – I love your website! I am going to try the carrot whip recipe soon, looks wonderful! We just found out how much cauliflower tastes like potato – and the family doesn’t miss them. We’re learning a lot about changing our diet for the better. I agree with you, using sea salt – is very healthy, and in most recipes too – so I am glad you are having this giveaway because we will be out soon! Thanks! [SMILE]…

  10. I like to make a glaze with raw honey and ghee. Add sea salt, and spread it on anything that needs a sweet and salty accent. I spread some on bacon-wrapped green bundles last night. Yum! I want to try it on some walnuts…

  11. I mix it with coconut oil and peppermint oil and brush my teeth. I mix it with purified water and honey and put on my face for 5-10 minutes before I get in the shower. And obviously use it on my food!

  12. Ah! Salt. Love it! Was so relieved when I found out that sea salt and other real salts were actually good for me ’cause I am one of those people who craves salt. As I’m doing GAPS Intro right now, being able to liberally salt my food is keeping me sane!

  13. I would love to win one of these, but then I would love to win most of the real food and natural product items that I find of interest on the sites that I have chosen to read posts on! LOL! I want to incorporate sea salt into my diet for all of the trace mineral benefits that I have read about to promote natural health.
