I am one of the few people who don't like a salty taste, so I rarely salt my food at the table and use very little in cooking. If I'm eating out, I can't order soup, because their soup is usually too salty for my taste. I do, however, have high blood pressure, regardless.

I love green onions dipped in salt! And I can't eat eggs or tomatoes without salt.

I saw Meme's salt well on this thread and was reminded that I use salt very differently than most of my family and friends. I'm the only one I know that has salt in an open container ready to use, esp, in cooking - never measured. Someone also mentioned dipping vegetables in salt, same here - cuce chips last night when I was too lazy to make a proper salad

It look like my little china dish needs some cleaning from all the dipping and messing fingers going back in for more. I figure salt is a pretty good anti bacterial so I don't mind much...



Eat. More. Salt.

Tried dipping my celery in salt & went back for more! It's good. Now I'll have to try the green onions.

I just began reading The Salt Fix this week (yeah, late to the party). I’m perfectly ready to be convinced that salt is not the enemy based on all the other crazy dietary advice we’ve gotten over the decades, so the book is sort of “preaching to the choir” to me, even though I don’t actively measure my sodium intake.

However Dalby’s review of chapter 2 was interesting and I would have been curious about his take on other chapters. I admit I sort of skimmed the chapter myself as I had more interest in the clinical studies and less about prehistoric humans. I admit I was pretty turned off by the referral to the current great apes 🦍 as “pre-human” which was a big reason why I skipped most of that chapter.

So I’m still not too far into the book. I’m perfectly happy with the idea that sugar is the demon and salt is not. But I do wonder what other facts he may have twisted. I mean did he really cite an article in the *Daily Mail* as a reference??

Saw the cows today frantically licking the salt and mineral blocks. Grinding sounds as they tried to bite off chunks of it. I almost felt like joining in, but settled for some salty meat jerky
