Replacing the peanut butter last week was great for me. I think I got rid of or at least reduced my love for peanut butter. This week I want to get rid of Goldfish (my non-clean eating weakness) and replacing it with.... 100 calorie kettle popcorn.

Haven't had salt in years, thought the sodium in things was good enough.

I should say I haven't had IODINE in years..now I have a goiter and they are checking it for cancer. I wish I would have known that all processed food does not have the needed iodine. USE SALT, even half a teaspoon a day is enough.

I am committed to me..really committed to me for the first time, in like EVER!

Please do some research on NuSalt! Why use that when You can use real sea and earth salt? I'm serious; NuSalt has some real issues and some serious side effects attached to it. Please look into it; there are lots of articles on the web explaining the hazards.

This "NuSalt" is just another one of those products made to make money on people's fears. Our bodies NEED sodium. BUT our bodies need the proper balance of sodium/magnesium/potassium/etc./etc. The table salt that you and I have been eating is mostly just sodium. The salt in most all packaged/commercial foods is mostly just sodium. THAT is what has caused the terrible imbalance. Sodium by itself can cause high blood pressure. Our bodies need REAL food, not highly refined, split off pieces that are cheap to manufacture.

Real salt, as in sea salt, has all the minerals needed for balance. We must consume that salt; it's our body's natural need. Balanced salt is also found in many foods.

NuSalt is potassium chloride. When a person needs an extra burst of potassium, like for leg cramps, the the one that the knowledgeable doctors recommend is potassium citrate NOT potassium chloride. This NuSalt is produced by people and companies that are NOT educated in nutritional health. They are quite educated in how to make money!

My big point is: don't think you can substitute one unhealthy manufactured product with another unhealthy manufactured product and expect to improve your health.

Both my dh and I (and quite a few friends) use plenty of salt and none of us has high blood pressure. We use whole, real salt. It tastes so much better; no kidding!

Just caring about you,
-annie

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

This week I'm still working on taking caffeine out of my diet and putting vitamins, fruits and veggies into it. I'm adding some natural almond butter to the fruit for some good fat and protein. That should give me a shot in the arm. I seriously have bad caffeine addiction, sometimes 600-800 milligrams a day, so this is hard, but I'm succeeding!

Now there's a great swap. Funny, I just dumped a whole boxful of Tupperware. Gave it to a church rummage sale. I've been slowly gathering glass containers most of which are washed out jars from bought items. They work so good for so many things. I also purchased some Pyrex containers one at a time over the last 2 years; Love 'em!
Oh, and I got some awesome 2 cup glass containers with lids by the dozen from an on line store for pretty cheap. I think they were from Crate & Barrel. $20 plus shipping.
