Himalayan Salt is actually good for you! 100% NATURAL PINK & CERTIFIED: Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt which you can get at the Amazon link which is Kosher Certified, Non-GMO, and does not contain any MSG, Soy, Gluten, Dairy, or anti-caking agents.
Black Pepper adds a little extra flavour to this anti-inflammatory stew recipe.
I like both of these black peppers: Trader Joe’s Black Pepper Peppercorns with Grinder or Simply Organic Pepper, Black Medium Grind Certified Organic. The pepper adds a bit of heat to this stew. You can add pepper according to your taste.
When you are making your stew make sure you are not filling your body with chemicals from unclean water. I know that it was making me ill a long time ago when I used to drink regular water and I have always drank filtered water since. As it can be expensive to always have to buy water I decided to purchase a filtration system to filter my water at home. It is an upfront cost but it has saved me lot’s over the years. Here is the water filter that I am currently using and I am very happy with it. The only way to remove fluoride from your water is to use a reverse osmosis system and some systems are better than others. When I did my research this is the one I decided on.
