The power of Himalayan pink Salt

Hello guys!

Today I wanna share a little bit of my previous habits and what I do today for a healthier eating routine...

Me and my grandma: Portuguese background

Coming from a Portuguese background, I grew up eating very well seasoned and salty dishes as my Mom was taught to cook this way. About that time i loved this kind of food because I was used to eat that way, but as I wanted change my  eating habits I've been trying to reduce the amount of salt in my meals.

These are my grandparents and I in Portugal last year

I researched for the heathiest salt, and my favorite one has been the "Himalayan salt" ever since. First time I bought it , I didn't know it was THAT good and I'll tell you why... Here it comes the FUN part: there is a way to have a little salt, much flavor and less worries at the same time!!

Himalayan salt has millions of years under intense tectonic pressure creating an environment of zero exposure to impurities. It's free from that many toxins / pollutants that pervade other forms of ocean salt . So PURE as it is, that's the best for you cause refining is not needed.

My favorite brand!

As important as the "pureness " are the benefits to your health and body:

  • Promotes stable PH balance in the cells, including the brain;
  • Controls the water levels within the body, regulating for proper functioning;
  • It encourages excellent blood sugar health;
  • Aids and reduces the common sigs of aging;
  • Increases absorption capacities of food elements within the intestinal tract;
  • It lows incidence of sinus problems;
  • Reduces muscle cramps;
  • Increases bone strenght;
  • It even prevents cellulite in comparison with regular table salt;
  • Naturally helps healthy sleep patterns;
  • It contains the same 84 natural minerals and elements found in the human body.
Little pink good rocks!

If all this isn't good enough, be aware that tremendous amounts of energy  must be waste to metabolize chemical table salt and to keep the body at optimum fluid balance. Studies show that for each gram of table salt your system cannot process, your body will use over 20 times the amount of cellular water to neutralize the sodium chloride in chemically-treated salt, what easily leads to cellulite, rheumatism, arthrits, gout as well as kidney stones.  Instead choose pink Himalayan salt and avoid that.

Hope the Himalayan salt light pink color will "brighten" your dishes too!!

5 Foods That I Eat Every Day

1. Cucumber

I juice it every morning with other vegetables. It is so hydrating for the skin. Cucumber will make your skin look young and fresh.


I use kale in my salads as a green base; I add other veggies as well. Or I use it in my green smoothies (banana, apple 1 cup of water and kale). The other way to use kale is to juice it with other veggies and fruits. Kale contains lots of fiber, vitamins K and C, calcium.

3.Himalayan Pink Salt

Your body needs 1 teaspoon a day of a high quality salt. I love Pink salt, it is full of minerals and it makes everything tastes better! I add a pinch of Pink Salt at the very end, so I don’t destroy vitamins and minerals in a cooking process.

4. Olive Oil

Our bodies need a good fat to keep us healthy and slim. Choose Organic Cold Press Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Toss it in your salad instead of mayonnaise or any other commercial dressings. I use 2 – 4 Tablespoons a day.


Every morning I squeeze a fresh lemon in a glass of water for an extra detox. Contains Vitamin C for immune system, but the best quality of a lemon is that it keeps our body alkaline.

This is not the only food that I eat! Those 5 foods I include in my diet every single day TOGETHER with other whole foods: fruits, veggies, nuts, fish, brown rice, whole wheat pasta, dark chocolate, green tea, organic coffee and last but not least – pure clean water!
