    i used to really crave salty food and used to add (pure sea) salt to a lot of my food. I actually just noticed today that I don't do that any longer - not sure whether I had some kind of deficiency that has now been fixed, or what. Either way, I'm not overly concerned about salt consumption.

    Salt has been important for indigenous ancestors to consume. The Incas cherished it. I'm not clear how much they consumed though. I have began adding back in SEA SALT and PINK HIMALYAN SALT. Salt that has the pink tone to it. Since I don't eat any store processed foods, I add salt as much as I want. I sprinkle some on my fish/meat and tubers.

    Honestly tho, some foods I prefer to eat without salt. I feel that salt takes away from their natural flavor which I enjoy so much lol. Sometimes I prefer to eat my sweet potatoes without salt, i love their plain sweet flavor. But I have been adding it back in to see how I do.

    I don't add salt to my food when it's on the table, but I do use kosher salt (along with many.....MANY....other spices and seasonings) while cooking and when making fermented veggies. Never really bothered adding up how much though. When all is said and done, I guess I fall somewhere between 1,000-3,000 mg of sodium a day...maybe.

    No idea how much salt I eat and I don't care. Haven't seen any good evidence that excessive salt intake causes illness. I use enough salt to taste and I cook the majority of my meals.

    I don't keep track. Just enough so that it still tastes good.
