Great Low Sodium Dishes and Snacks
Why should mineral supplements be so bitter and harsh?
Traditionally, mineral supplements were taken while holding your nose. They are bitter, they are harsh and no one looked forward to the ritual of taking something that is good for us but anything but welcome. Some mineral supplements come with all kinds of sweeteners added to mask their bad taste. They tell us to take them with orange juice to hide the bitterness.
Why is that? Most mineral supplements are imbalanced. They contain too much of one mineral and not enough of another. The result is a harsh and bitter mineral supplement. Not any more! Hawaiian Sea Minerals™ come from the Hawaiian Sea where nature has produced a combination of minerals, trace elements and electrolytes that are in harmony. They are balanced and, because of this, they are neither harsh nor bitter.
As with any condiment, it needs to be added to a meal or dish, not taken straight. you wouldn't drink soy sauce by itself. But, put it on your favorite Asian dish and the flavors comes alive. The combination is perfect. This is true with Hawaiian sea minerals™. It is meant to be used as a condiment. As such, it brings ordinary dishes to life and makes them sing. They make an otherwise dull snack literally pop with flavor.

Hawaiian Kalua pork sliders with Kaipo's Pineapple slaw:
Hawaii is famous for kalua pork. This "slider" recipe lives up to the fame. We have to credit Kaipo for bringing this amazing sandwich to life. Kaipo, like many of us, was struggling with consuming too much salt. He is getting up there in age, Blood pressure was up and his doctor told him to cut back. Kaipo's a free spirit who has lived his whole life, when not working, surfing the dozens of great surf spots around the islands. He never paid much attention to what he was eating.

I suggested he try my Hawaiian Sea Minerals™ on some apples I had. He was amazed. We sprayed a little on the apple slices.

big island fruit salad with pineapple and mandarin orange slices:

Big Kahuna Butter Spread:
You probably thought that the "Big Kahuna" was just a mythical guy made up by some Hawaiian folks. Not true. I know the Big Kahuna personally and he's a character for sure but not fictitious. He's put on a few extra pounds over the years and needed to cut back on the salt and especially salted butter. And the butter for that matter. Salted butter was his big deal. It went on corn-on-the-cob. His potato was always smothered with butter. Pretty much nothing got by his lips that wasn't oozing with salted butter. Like Kaipo, his doctor told him he needed to cut back. Way back on both. The Kahuna was positively depressed. That is until I suggested using Hawaiian Sea Minerals™ on unsalted butter. That was when he decided to invent Big Kahuna Butter Spread. I've had it and it's great. Use it on toast, baked potato, pancakes etc. Check out his recipe.

She was an early convert to Hawaiian Sea Minerals™ as a substitute for table salt with all that sodium. At first she was concerned that her pancakes wouldn't taste the same with minerals instead of table salt.
