Healthy Pan-seared Salmon Salad with Himalayan Crystal Salt

300 million years ago, a vast ocean covered an area that became the Himalayan mountain range. The salt from that ocean was preserved as large crystal formations, which now yield the purest salt on earth. Bio-energetically "alive", this crystal salt contains the same 84 key trace minerals as our bodies, so it is easily metabolized.

I'd prepared an uplifting and Healthy Pan-seared Salmon Salad, drenched in mint and lemon zest dressing with the Aloha Bay Himalayan Crystal Salt I found at #Vitacost.

I was so fascinated by the beautiful pink rock salt, and placed an order in my monthly shopping with Vitacost.

vitacost aloha bay himalayan crystal salt review
#AlohaBay Himalayan Table and Cooking Salt Mill comes in a classy 7" tall ceramic grinder. The hand-crushed salt is pinkish in colour due to the minerals it contains. No additives. Gourmet cooks swear by the exquisite taste of this Wholesome Natural Salt!

It's also easy to use. For finer salt, tighten the top metal screw. For courser salt, loosen the top screw. Retail: USD 18.99, Vitacost: USD 11.99, You Save: 36%!!

I love adding mint leaves and lemon zest to my food as it adds flavours to my dishes and drinks, or it can be used as a garnish too. I paired my salmon fillets with some fresh garden greens, cherry tomatoes, sunflower seeds, and French mustard, then drizzled a mix of lemon zest dressing with mint leaves.

Well, besides ordering the Himalayan Crystal Salt, I'd also added the following items to my Vitacost shopping list:

vitacost calcium resveratrol grape seed review
All Terrain Strong Strip Bandages Latex Free - 20 Bandages
Retail: USD 4.59, Vitacost: USD 3.69, You Save: 19%!

Vitacost Resveratrol + Grape Seed & Red Wine Extracts (240 Capsules) @ USD 21.99. This is a repeat order; click on the link to read more.

Vitacost Calcium (from Dicalcium Malate) with Vitamin D3 and Magnesium 600 mg per serving (180 Capsules) @ USD 14.59
This #calcium features a form of calcium that is chelated, or bonded, with malic acid. Chelated minerals are believed by some to be better absorbed and utilized by the body than non-chelated minerals.* In addition, malates do not react with stomach acid in the same way as more common carbonates (which can sometimes cause digestive discomfort).*

Of course not forgetting Candy's monthly dog treats:

My December Vitacost review had been delayed due to the long wait despite my priority shipping. I've been shopping at Vitacost for more than a year now, and had always chosen the USD 13.99 option for weight below 3.41 lbs, just a dollar extra for DHL Priority Shipping, which normally arrives in about a week or so. Probably due to the festive period, my orders took 3 weeks to reach me this time. Nonetheless, my experience with them has always been good.

Vitacost ships to over 170 countries! You may wanna start your shopping adventures with them too.
