Hey there, Fit Fam!
Today, we're going to tackle a topic that might leave you feeling a little salty... yup, we're talking about SALT!
For ages, the debate has raged on: Is salt good or bad for you? Do we really need it?
Let's set the record straight: YES! Your body absolutely needs salt.
Why: Salt is a vital mineral that keeps everything in your body functioning like a well-oiled machine. When it comes to hydration, most of us just think we need to drink water and sometimes maybe electrolytes.
But have you ever thought beyond that to the how?
Well, we've got a fun fact for you: Salt (yup, sodium!) is strutting its stuff as a superstar in the world of electrolytes!
Whether you're a sports enthusiast or simply work out to stay healthy, you're sweating out salt – which means you need to replenish it!
Remember the sweet taste of victory – and Gatorade – after playing outside all day or crushing it on the field?
Back then, we just knew electrolytes = Good.
Well, salt is crucial for muscle function and movement too. You probably already know that sodium and potassium are crucial for your body. But they play a more significant role than you might think.
They are your central nervous system control center, overseeing everything you do, even when you're not conscious of it. Sodium and potassium serve as the essential team that fuels your muscles. Without them, activities like flexing your biceps, getting out of bed, or even breathing become challenging!
They're tirelessly working in every part of you, ensuring you stay active and energized throughout the day. So, when you're low on these essential minerals, you'll feel it all over – cramps, sluggishness, or a foggy brain.
Feeling off your game? Sprinkle some pink Himalayan salt in water or crack open a Topo Chico to re-up on those electrolytes!
Ever feel like sugar cravings run your life? Salt can actually help curb those ongoing cravings.
Now, don't go licking a salt block just yet, but having the right amount of salt in your diet can help you resist those pesky sugar cravings.
Trying to shed some pounds? A balanced dose of sodium in your meals might just do the trick. However, not all salt is created equal.
The rise of processed foods led to skyrocketing salt intake, giving salt a bad rep. Newsflash: Your food SHOULD spoil!
If your bread's been mold-free for weeks, it's time to rethink your diet. Processed foods are loaded with preservatives, aka salts, and sugars that keep you craving more. That's why here at MFF, we ONLY use pink Himalayan salt, which is naturally packed with 84 minerals like potassium and calcium – essential for your sodium-potassium pump!
We cook fresh daily and vacuum seal our meals for maximum freshness. So, every time you dig into an MFF meal, you're enjoying clean, healthy, and delicious food with mineral-rich pink Himalayan salt!
The bottom line? It's not about the quantity but the quality of salt. Making simple swaps can lead to big changes, even when it comes to a grain of salt!
Keep fueling your body with the best, and stay on top of your game!
