New Year's Challenge: Small Changes (Day two)

Continuing on with the series of small, simple changes to help you reach your health and wellness goals, today’s change is about garlic salt.

Garlic salt is an easy and quick way to boost the flavor of your food without adding any extra calories. Eggs, grilled chicken, steamed veggies all come to life with a sprinkle from a bottle. However, pre-mixed spices tend to be of low quality and any health benefits are typically diminished. Instead of reaching for garlic salt, opt for a separate garlic powder and sea salt.

You may think all salts are created equal, but there’s a big difference between table salt and a sea salt. Table salt is more heavily processed to eliminate minerals and usually contains an additive to prevent clumping. Sea salt, on the other hand, has a wealth of nutritional benefits:

  1. Rich in trace minerals

  2. Prevents dehydration and balances fluids

  3. Loaded with electrolytes

  4. Promotes brain, muscle, and nervous system function

  5. Supports digestive health

  6. Promotes nutrient absorption

In addition to reaping all those health benefits, the two bottles will last longer and enable you to control and create the flavor combination you want.
