Real Salt Review and giveaway {CLOSED}

I hope everyone had a great long weekend, besides being off of work for most of us and grilling out and enjoying the day,  I hope everyone was thinking about all the men and women we have lost while serving this country! 

 So why not kick off the short work week after a holiday with a giveaway!! 

Have you ever walked through the grocery store and come across the brand Real Salt and wondered what's the difference?  Isn't salt bad for you?  Or if you haven't seen Real Salt in the stores you may wondering what it is anyway?

Redmond Trading Company have sent me Real Salt products to test out and are so nice to also be giving away some of these products as well.  Redmond makes a lot of natural products that are definitely worth trying, if you haven't seen my Bentonite Clay Review come check it out as well.   http://sloganadventures.blogspot.com/2014/04/make-your-own-mud-pies-inside-and.html

I'm a big fan of their products, so it's great to share products that are not only good for us, but products that I believe in to help live a healthier, more natural lifestyle!

Let's talk about Salt!!

Ok so there are a lot of options for salt out there, there is sea salt, table salt, Real salt, Himalayan pink salt, and the list goes on with choices.  So how do you choose?

Reading labels is important to know whether or not your salt has been processed or refined, yep even salt out there is processed.   Salt is not naturally white, chemicals make it white! So here we are buying organic food and then sprinkling some flavor on it with salt and what do you know you may be adding chemicals onto it?! Now I know, I know, we can't 100% stay away from chemicals and additives, but your best option is to find salt that is unrefined and not processed.  In Real Salt's information booklet about the salt, they have listed all the ingredients that you may find on the labels of salt to know whether or not it is processed and refined.  

That's a long list and did anyone else see that they will put Dextrose (sugar) in salt?  Even take a peek at those so called healthy "sea salt," they can have additives in there too! 

So what does that mean for Real Salt?  Real Salt is unrefined and not processed so the trace minerals are still present in the salt.  Trace minerals are minerals that our body needs, they are important for the immune system, as well as your metabolism.

Now you know that Real Salt is unrefined and natural but where does it come from? Real Salt also gives a description in their informational booklet of how the salt is mined. They state, "Real Salt is currently harvested about 300 feet below the surface of the earth.  We carefully follow the food-grade veins and harvest the salt using carbide-tipped equipment that basically scrapes the salt off the walls of the mine.  From there, the salt is screened and crushed to side before being shipped to our food-grade facility in Northern Utah.  Real Salt is packaged after passing through a final automatic screening to be sure no metal residue or contaminants were introduced during the process." Real Salt is pinkish in color and they say has a"sweet" taste to it. The Salt is right in Utah! 

Your next question probably is, I thought salt was bad for you? We need salts and minerals for optimal health and it's the additives and the missing trace minerals in salt after it's been processed that are not great for us.  Obviously you don't want too much and now according to research, not enough sodium intake is not great for you either.  Out body is made up of 72% salt water, we do need salt in our life!

Now on to the good stuff, I've tried it, I really like it and we have replaced all of our salt with Real Salt.  They were gracious on sending me Real Salt, Onion Salt, Garlic Salt, and Seasoning Salt.  Besides replacing our regular salt with Real Salt, we have been LOVING the seasoning salt, it's my personal favorite.  We have been using it on burgers and corn and really anything we would like to season and throw on the grill.  They pack on awesome taste and flavor!   They do taste different than the normal brands you would buy, but in a good way.  I've been working on a recipe recreating a dip I LOVED in Sedona that involves corn and the seasoning salt.  I'm hoping to share it soon with all of you once it's PERFECT. 

Here is a picture of the goods :)

They also have Real Salt Bath Salts too, what a great way to relax and detox in the tub and it's so relaxing! There are still so many Real Salt products I want to try still!
