HimalaSalt Giveaway – Pink Salt of the Himalayas

PhotobucketCongrats to Paul of California!  He won the HimalaSalt Giveaway.  Enjoy it, Paul!

I thoroughly enjoy cooking.  There’s something therapeutic about the process now that I cook with as many natural, organic foods as I can.  Picking out the right ingredients, searching for the freshest items and the best recipes are all part of the fun for me, right down to the spices.  If there’s one thing I’ve learned, everything you add to the recipe makes a difference, either for the good or for the bad–right down to the salt.  This most basic ingredient probably gets looked over more than any other one.  After all, it’s just salt, right?  If you say that, you’ve probably never had the pleasure of experiencing a good, high-quality salt.

HimalaSalt is pink sea salt from the Himalayas.  It’s 250 million years old and is more pure than any other salt.  In fact, the mineral content (that’s what makes it a beautiful pink) actually restores the alkaline balance in our bodies, a balance very similar to that of the ocean.  This is what made it so exciting for me to try.  There’s something very “back-to-the-earth” about taking that first taste because you realize just how long this salt has been in preparation and how pure it really is.  I have tasted good salts before, and it’s eye opening to find out there’s such a difference.  But this?  This is seriously good stuff.

You know how impressive I find some companies due to their high ethical and quality standard.  Sustainable Sourcing, the company behind HimalaSalt, is just this sort of company.  Here is a little about who they are:

HimalaSalt™ is the Purest Salt on Earth™. While there are many pink Himalayan sea salts on the market, HimalaSalt™is the only Ethically Sourced, Artisan Made Himalayan Pink Sea Salt that is Kosher Certified, Green-e Certified (made by 100% renewable wind and solar energy), sustainably packaged, with 5% of profits going to the environment and back to the source community.

Impressed?  I sure am!  And Sustainable Sourcing wants to give one of you the chance to try their product for free.  They’re giving away one Green Gift Kit, which includes their Organic Peppercorn & HimalaSalt Trio. All three are refillable grinders filled with the highest grade organic Himalayan pink sea salt, green peppercorns, and pink peppercorns. They’re beautiful grinders that will make a great finishing touch to a table set for your best recipes.  If you want to skip the contest and buy yourself the set, it’s on sale now for $29.75, originally $35.

  1. I never knew there were so many types of peppercorns. Pink peppercorns from Brazil is something totally new to me. Apparently it’s an heirloom plant. Just when I grasp this, read on your site of green peppercorns from India, Heirloom Cubeb Pepper from Indonesia, and Heirloom Long Pepper from Bali. This with white and black peppers, which I am familar with.

    You have such a wonderful site. Educational, wonderful organic products – good for one and yummy! Thank you for giving consumers the options for salts, and peppers.

  2. This product is 250 million years old……………..impressive….can’t wait to try it

  3. the Rainbow Peppercorn Blend sounds really tasty! i never realized how many types of peppercorn there is. I didn’t realize how processed table salt is!

  4. If you remember your Old Testament, Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt. Lucky man that lot. A whole pillar! Or was it a pillar of rainbow peppercorns? Anyhow, We’re salt&pepperaholics around these parts and I am really excited to learn of the variety of products you carry. Thanks for existing!

    Gazpachots last blog post..The end of chatter…

  5. I learned that you can grate blocks of salt for food. Call me naive, but it had simply never occurred to me that salt for use on food can come in blocks. I currently use the bigger crystals in my grinder, but I love the look of the HimalaSalt Zen Cubes – pretty, natural and sustainable sourcing… wow.

  6. i never realized how unnatural table salt was, i can’t believe they strip it of all it’s nutrients and add fillers, yucky!

  7. I was not aware of this of fact from their site: “Iodized table salt contains dextrose derived from corn, one of the most common allergens.” I had no idea that iodized table salt contained dextrose. Great prize, would love to try this!

  8. I learned that HimalaSalt only uses crystals that are clear, rose, or pale pink in color.

  9. Using HimalaSalt, the finest of all Himalayan sea salts, helps to:
    # Anti-aging; rids the body of acidic wastes that cause degeneration

    Thanks :)

  10. HimalaSalt Organic Four Peppercorn Blend … I would like to try as we love fresh ground pepper!

  11. I’d like to try the Pink Peppercorns. I think they would add an interesting flavors to foods.

    Neat stuff on this site!

  12. Pink salt, how sheik!!!! Now you can color coordinate the food with the seasonings. Ingenious!

  13. People have become so addicted to salt and other unhealthy items that it is nice to find a product that will fullfill that salt craving without doiong the damage to the body that regular everyday table salt can do. I thank you for bringing this to everyone’s attention!
    In my eyes anything that helps people become healthier is obviously a great idea. The Zen Cube is very unique and something I would love to own.

  14. I am a nurse, work 12 hours. I might work 60 hours a week. This HimalaRose Healing Rituals Bath Salt sounds nice. I would love to see if it would help after long hours of work.
