I don’t like salt
Plain and simple. I don’t like the taste of salt. When I was a kid I had high blood pressure and from then on I didn’t eat salt. I don’t add it much to my food when I’m cooking and it’s just not heart healthy. Not that I'm a health 'nut', but I do watch what I eat and what I feed to The Kid and The Boyfriend.
Browsing through foodgawker and tastespotting I don’t understand this new trend with salted caramel and chocolate and even cookies for crying out loud!
I’m not buying into this new trend. I have my occasional (usually during that time) salt craving, but that usually means a little grind of sea salt on the hamburger or on my steak. I even brush the salt off pretzels.. Yes, even the soft ones. Yes, I know all about how it intensifies the taste of sweet things, which is why we add a bit of salt to our baked goods and chocolate anything.. But still.. I just don’t get it.
