If you regularly consume salt and sugar, try to cut down on your usage of both. It is best to try alternative options to substitute table salt and refined white sugar. While cooking something, you can use half the amount of table salt and the other half can be either Himalayan pink salt or black salt. Don’t eliminate table salt completely from your diet as it might cause an iodine deficiency in the body. Similarly, instead of white sugar, you can use healthier substitutes honey, jaggery and even stevia.
