Product Description

Coarse sea salt is a natural product obtained directly from seawater. It offers plenty of health benefits that processed salt cannot give you. There is a lot of research that proves processed salt to be highly detrimental to your overall wellbeing. This product doesn’t have such a negative effect on your health, so it becomes the safe alternative to this most popular of spices.

Health Benefits

Despite the fact that the amounts of coarse sea salt in your food will be miniscule, it can do you much good as the nutrients it contains are highly concentrated. It has so many of them that adding just a bit of this salt to your food will make your body stronger as a whole by increasing your natural defenses. Aside from a major impact on your immune system, sea salt offers the following health benefits:

  • It promotes weight loss.
    Sea salt triggers the production of digestive juices. Therefore, it helps your body digest food faster, which helps to control weight gain as well as prevents constipation and other unpleasant digestive disorders.
  • It helps treating some skin conditions.
    You can not only eat coarse sea salt but put it in your bath water as well. This will help with the treatment of eczema, psoriasis, body acne, and other similar conditions. A bath like this opens up the pores, reduces inflammation, improves blood circulation, and promotes healing.
  • It helps relieve the symptoms of asthma.
    According to some people, sprinkling a bit of sea salt on your tongue and drinking a glass of water right after can help in case of an asthma attack just as much as using an inhaler can. While it’s not an accepted treatment method, you can use this approach in a situation where a suitable medication is unavailable. The anti-inflammatory effect of sea salt slows down the production of phlegm, making it easier to breathe.
  • It reduces the risk of osteoporosis.
    Your body actually stores over 1/4 of the salt you consume in the bones. Therefore, adding coarse sea salt to your meals will help you maintain bone density.
  • It helps relieve muscle spasms.
    Sea salt contains large amounts of potassium, which helps to both relieve and prevent muscle pains and spasms.
  • It alleviates depression.
    Sea salt helps your body retain serotonin and melatonin. Both these hormones make you feel happier and help keep depression at bay.

Wraps

Wraps

Ingredients

SWEET POTATOES

  • 2 large sweet potatoes (~300 g | organic when possible)
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) grape seed oil
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • optional: pinch cayenne pepper


CHICKPEAS

  • 1 15-ounce (425 g) can chickpeas, rinsed, drained and thoroughly dried in a towel
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) grape seed oil
  • 1 tsp fresh or dried thyme
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • scant 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • optional: Healthy pinch each ground coriander + cardamom


FOR SERVING optional

  • 4 Garlic Herb Flatbreads (or store-bought flatbreads or pita)
  • Garlic Dill Hummus Sauce
  • Toasted sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds
  • Dried cranberries, chopped
  • Fresh arugula or parsley


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Thoroughly wash and dry sweet potatoes, then slice (skin on) into bite-sized rounds/pieces.
  3. Add to a mixing bowl with grape seed oil, thyme, cinnamon, sea salt and cayenne (optional). Toss to coat, then arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  4. To the same mixing bowl, add rinsed, dried chickpeas, and grape seed oil, thyme, cinnamon, cumin, paprika, sea salt, and coriander + cardamom (optional).
  5. Toss to coat, then arrange on baking sheet with sweet potatoes where space permits. (Depending on size of baking sheet, you may need to use a second to accommodate all potatoes and chickpeas).
  6. Bake for a total of 25 minutes, flipping/stirring once at the 15-minute mark to ensure even cooking. You’ll know they’re done when the potatoes are fork tender, and the chickpeas are golden brown, dehydrated, and slightly crispy. Remove from oven and set aside.
  7. In the meantime, prepare toppings and dressing (if using).
  8. Once potatoes and chickpeas are finished baking, wrap flatbreads in a damp towel and warm in the still warm oven for 1-2 minutes (or in the microwave for 30 seconds) to soften and make more pliable.
  9. To assemble, top each wrap with a portion of sweet potatoes and chickpeas. Add desired toppings, such as dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, arugula, and Garlic-Dill Hummus Sauce (recipe link above).
  10. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep separately in the refrigerator up to 3 days.

Broccoli fritters

Broccoli fritters

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup Chickpea Flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or more for cooking


Directions:

Place broccoli florets, onion, cilantro and garlic in batches in a food processor and process until crumbly (looks like rice grains). Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in chickpea flour, flaxseed meal, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt. Mix well and squeeze together like you are forming a dough. Heat oil on medium in a large skillet. Form into patties about 1/4 cup, place fritters in the skillet, reduce heat to low and cook fritters on each side for about 4 minutes until golden brown. These are lightly fried and not deep fried. What I do is cover the skillet after I turn them to make sure the fritters are well cooked in the middle. Delicious served with guacamole.

Dried Cherry, Almond + Chocolate Chip Granola Bars (Gluten Free + Vegan)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • ¾ cup puffed brown rice
  • ½ cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ¾ cup dried cherries, roughly chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅓ cup creamy almond butter
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup dairy-free mini chocolate chips
  • 2 oz. dairy-free dark chocolate (chopped or in chips)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Flaky sea salt, optional

 

Directions:

  1. Line an 8×8” square pan with parchment paper and lightly grease with coconut oil. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the rolled oats, puffed rice, toasted almonds, chia seeds, and kosher salt.
  3. Stir together the almond butter and maple syrup in a small microwave-safe bowl or liquid measuring cup. Microwave the mixture for 30 seconds – it should be hot and pour easily. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the almond butter/maple syrup mixture over the dry oat mixture and stir until all of the dry ingredients are coated. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
  5. Pour the sticky mixture into the prepared pan and then use a flat-bottomed drinking glass, measuring cup, or spatula to press the mixture into a firm, even layer in the pan. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before cutting into 10 granola bars.
  6. After the bars are cut, combine the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Use a fork to drizzle the chocolate over the bars, or put the melted chocolate in a small Ziplock bag and snip the corner to drizzle over the bars. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt, if desired.
  7. Store the granola bars in a sealed bag or container in the refrigerator for 2 weeks.

 

Enjoy!
