Diet restrictions sometimes have us avoiding foods unnecessarily. Take salt. Salt has nutritive value. Unfortunately, sodium, a component of salt, gets added to a lot of processed foods, taking our food further from nature and putting the sodium balance in our bodies out of whack. Natural salt isn’t the culprit. Real salt, adds flavor and texture. It comes in large, easy to use crystals and delicately milled bits. It picks up veggies and seasons dishes. It can even add a dash of surprise by appearing unexpectedly. For example, in a dish of ice cream!
- I have several girlfriends in Weight Watchers. I’ve never participated in any weight loss program, so I don’t really know how they actually work.
- But I do know that food is tracked on a point scale. And that things you can eat have a lower number on the point scale than things you shouldn’t eat.
- And there are rules — a lot of rules. Each week you have to weigh-in and track the pounds you’ve either lost or gained.
