Chefs Speak Out


Top Experts Speak Out


Most chefs agree that using high-quality ingredients is the single most important way to provide healthier menus. This is especially true for the growing community of raw and living food chefs and experts who focus on health and absolute vibrancy in the food they prepare. 
We’re proud to be the salt of choice for some of these leading culinary chefs and authors whose visions for perfection in food are unrivaled.
Here’s what they are saying:

At Living Light Culinary Arts Institute, we are committed to using the very best organic products available and Original Himalayan Crystal Salt™ is by far the best salt we have ever used. The purity and flavor is superior because the Himalayas are the world's most tranquil and undeveloped region, and still untouched by pollution. Therefore the beautiful pink salt crystals mined from the foothills of the Himalayas are still pure and contain trace minerals unavailable in other forms of salt. After discovering Himalayan Salt, we wouldn't consider using any other form of salt and we recommend it to all our students.

"I feel that a high quality salt is a valuable asset for increasing digestive wellness and adrenal health. For years I recommended fully-mineralized sea salts, until I found out about pink Original Himalayan Crystal Salt. I started using it myself and literally stopped using all other salts. This salt is simply the cleanest, purest, mineral-rich salt available. I use this salt in raw-food dishes, smoothies, and in  drinking water. I also bathe in it. In each room of my home I have a Crystal Salt lamp!"

Her combinations of sprouted grains, seeds and nuts, along with fruits, vegetable, herbs and seaweeds are manufactured with the utmost care for the preservation of the living vitality and nutrition of these ingredients. Here’s what the inspector from USDA accredited Organic Certifiers had to say about what he witnessed in Lydia’s kitchens, “When I was present, they were preparing some sesame squares. This is a store that prepares everything by hand. There are no true mechanical or biological methods used in the handling operation.” That about sums it up!

I first learned of Himalayan Crystal Salt and its many wonderful properties from culinary classes at the Tree of Life in Patagonia, Arizona over a year and a half ago. Then when I was training at the Living Light Culinary Arts Institute, Himalayan Crystal Salt was also highly endorsed by the staff and instructors. Ever since discovering this special salt, I have not used any other brand. It has 84 mineral elements that our bodies need plus it is oriented in the crystalline shape that allows our bodies to easily assimilate it. Salt has had a bad reputation for too long, and it is time more people learn of the beneficial properties that this pure salt possesses. I love the taste not to mention the hint of pink – my favorite color.


Sistine Castellini is yet another up-and-coming vibrant, energetic, and enthusiastic "Living Food" chef. She told us that she had been using our Original Himalayan Crystal Salt for some time but was hesitant to talk openly about it until she could verify first-hand, its many claims as a health enhanser. We're happy to welcome her into this family of forward-thinking individuals who have discovered one of the simplest secrets to balanced and sustained health and wellbeing.

The Best Salt on the Planet
For our food preparation and living foods classes we only use Original Himalayan Crystal Salt™ (HCS). Our main reason for this is the extraordinary rich and satisfying taste of HCS. We feel that this salt is superior to any other kind of salt on the market.
We at Vibrant Earth Creations have the impression that when preparing vibrant, organic, living foods with Love and attention, this special salt adds another note to the high vibration. We therefore strongly recommend everybody to use Himalayan Crystal Salt™ for food preparation.
