I work for a large organic/natural grocer in New England, and I'm surprised daily how people still don't get it! Doing what I can to save the world!!!

I'm sure I'll find all the information I need. Currently wondering about raw nut butters compared to just eating the nuts and turning them to butter with ya teeeeeth.
Dunno, I'm excited. I probably will not be a huge participant, but I'm eager to come and learn. I've already had four servings of fruit before 10am and I'm gonna go for a bike ride 8)))))

I actually don't know any wholesalers..I would love to find some though because I get almost all my produce from Whole foods ( with the exception of dates-I buy those in bulk). And I would love to have any sort of discount on produce hahah, so count yourself lucky!
Science has pretty clearly showed us that outside the natural sodium found in food, even moderate salt intake is harmful, leeching minerals from the bones, raising blood pressure and even killing us if we ingest enough of it. You can read more about the reasons to avoid salt in this article, but I think the most compelling reason is that as long as you're eating it, you'll never know how good plain food can really taste. There is an unbelievably delicious level of flavor that the average person never gets to experience because they're constantly eating salt. The more salt you eat, the more your taste buds adjust to it, meaning that you'll require an ever greater amount to get the same flavor. This is why heavy salt users say food without salt is bland. They keep adding more salt to get more flavor, unaware they're losing ground with every kernel of salt. The truth is that their food may be packed with flavor, but they're unable to notice any of it because their taste buds are deadened by salt use. Luckily, the body adapts quickly to the removal of salt and other flavor stimulants, and within 30 days a sufficient number of your taste buds will have been replaced that you'll start noticing all sorts of new flavor nuances in your favorite fruits and vegetables. I remember the first time I bit into a garden-grown tomato after not having one -or any salt - for over a year. The juices coursing over my tongue had more levels of taste than I'd ever noticed before. The flesh seemed smokey and sweet, and every variety offered something new. Just thinking about tomatoes is making my mouth water. Do you like tomatoes that much? You could. Completely cut salt out of your diet for a month and see what happens; I think you'll enjoy the result.
I believe Andrew Perlot has put it more elegantly than I could possibly have done.
How is the HCRV lifestyle going for you? I hope you are having great days!
I am writing in response to a question you made me in one of your posts.
I might eat salt were I trapped in an atomic shelter, but otherwise I won't even think of eating it because it is not on my list of edible things... Salt is a rock, it's dead matter. I only eat live foods.
I'm sorry but I won't condone the use of mineral salt. If you are looking for excuses to eat salt, don't count on me to give them to you; give it up, because there are none.
I will not tell people the things they want to hear, but rather I will always say the truth as I perceive it to be. I may make a few - or several... - enemies along the way, but I prefer it to fooling people, which I would consider an unethical thing to do.
I'm sorry if I disappoint you with my straightforward way of expressing myself. If you ever need help or assistance on how to follow the right path, please don't hesitate to ask me. But if you wish excuses to persist in your bad ways, don't count on me to provide them. I am not a deceiver like so many self-proclaimed gurus out there.
Love and Light and deliciously tasty fruit to you! And good luck on your journey that has just begun!
