So Easter dinner was yesterday and as always, my family ganged up on me and picked apart my diet. My grandma told me she seen on T.V the other day that elephants in the desert had dug their way down to a salt mine to lick the salt! Also, my uncle pointed out that deer lick the salt from the roads and he provides his cattle with a salt lick. My mom also has one available for our horses. I told them that I eat celery because it has natural sodium in it but didn't know what else to say...
Help! Is it true that animals crave salt for a biological reason or is it just an addiction? Should I be eating some kind of salt daily? I haven't been touching salt. Just raw fruits & veggies for 21 days now. I need some backup… I hate when my family makes me feel insecure about my decisions!
That's so true. I have been doing that somewhat intentionally AND unintentionally /: Thank you SO much! I love good book references ESPECIALLY when it has to do with psychology. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
I had a hilarious encounter last night with a family friend, who talked about how she'd been eating too much candy and stuff again.
10 minutes later when I started talking fruit she expressed concern about fruit hurting your teeth.
Candy ok, fruit not ok.
Beam me up Scotty.
Barefoot, in your situation it is good to compile the data, I just deal with people a lot differently :).
Eg, I hear vegans are deficient in B12 and iron or something, whilst American eaters are deficient in EVERYTHING ELSE.
Beam me up.
