GIVING UP THE SALT ADDICTION
salt is addictive, it masks the true flavor of foods, if you are used to eat certain foods with salt,
most likely, they will not taste good if leave it out
BUT WE NEED SALT?
there is nothing good in salt we can not get from plants
and what we get from plants is better digestible and bioavailible for us
we get more than enough sodium on a plant based diet
HOW TO OVERCOME THE ADDICTION
there are two ways to give up salt: a slow transition or a jump into the salt-free water
psychologically, both ways have pros and cons and you are the one who knows whats easier for you
HOW SUBSTITUTES CAN HELP
substitutes like celery salt can help you using less salt or no salt at all
the salty taste of celery will help with the salt cravings, i promise!
HOW TO SUBSTITUTE SALT IF YOU ARE CRAVING IT
my fav: celery salt or fresh celery, shopped
lemon juice, lime juice, orange juice
herbs (fresh or dry)
onion/garlic (fresh, died, chives)
tomatoes, fresh or dehydrated
DO I HAVE TO SUBSTITUTE SALT FOREVER?
no, the taste buts change, here more info on that

HOW TO MAKE CELERY SALT
it’s easily made in a dehydrator or in an oven at low temperature
in this video i show you all the steps
WAS IT EASY FOR ME TO GIVE UP SALT?
no, not at all, salt was my worse food addiction and it was pretty hard for me to enjoy salads,
but then: i found celery salt!
the salt craving disappeared after 2 weeks of excluding regular salt from my diet
i live (almost) salt-free since 2011
i will have salt when i dine out in raw food restaurants and the salt is already incorporated into a dish
sometimes i eat storehouse organic kale chips or raw vegan cheese, both have salt while i’m in the states
in costa rica i live 100% salt free
HOW TO AVOID SALT EFFECTIVELY
prepare your food yourself (fresher, cheaper, you can do all organic)
if you buy processed food, read the labels, salt is an easy to identify, often the last on the list
try to ask at the restaurants not to add salt & always have your substitutes at hand
