Iodized Table Salt for Real Salt
I no longer use regular salt for my cooking instead I use real salt. You can see the minerals and everything still in the salt it has not been removed. I buy it in bulk at my local health food store but you can also get it online.
I use a pint jar for my shaker. I simply cut the top off an old table salt container and added it under a can ring instead of the can flat and it is easy to use. The salt does cake some and you have to give it a good shake before you use it but that is because it doesn't have ant caking ingredients in it. Sometimes you might get a little grit from a mineral but other than that it is great and healthier.
Real butter costs a little more but taste so much better and is so much better for you. You can buy organic but I usually just get the store brand at Save A Lot but I believe the Aldi brand is cheaper.
Vegetable Oil for Olive Oil
I can tell a big difference in my families health when they eat something cooked in another oil they get a belly ache very fast. I have heard coconut oil is good but haven't tried it yet. I use the store brand in the light or mild taste. I use it in all my cooking even my cakes and brownies and they turn out just fine.
These are three of the main things I try to use in all of my cooking. I would love to replace sugar with something else soon. Do you have any switches you have made?
