Scrambled eggs with fresh herbs...and salt!!

Breakfast was three eggs (because I haven't had even one in weeks), scrambled with Half & Half, chopped fresh arugula from the farmers' market, chives from my garden, ground pepper, assorted dried herbs and freshly ground sea salt as recommended by the chef on the cruise ship. She told me the biggest mistake most American cooks make is eliminating salt, due to fear of hypertension. A sprinkle or two of sea salt on fresh (not canned) ingredients will, in most cases, do your arteries no harm and bring out your flavors ten-fold.
