Does anyone know an edible substitute for sand that won't do harm to my body?

Water...

What do you eat sad for? The grit? The taste? Clay is reasonable, but you should eat very small amounts. Careful with any earth because it could contain lead

you might like halva? get the crumbly kind that's inside a little plastic tub, not wrapped up like a chocolate bar. it's a mixture of sesame paste and sugar, and it's soft with a slightly gritty texture.

Is it the kind that melts in your mouth?

You might try chalk? It isn't really gritty, but it isn't harmful

Should I grind it up or?

 

Just crush it into chunks.

It doesn't matter, but to get that grit will be hard. I'm thinking about it now and it will only be gritty for a few moments before it softens due to saliva.

My best recommendation would be clay, even parrots eat clay. There is even a kind that is extra gritty.

You could also just keep on with the sand but spit it out

Raw seeds (chia, sesame, etc), ground raw or toasted nuts, granulated maple sugar or maple flakes, pink himalayan salt, raw flour or ground grains (grits/cornmeal, ground buckwheat groats, etc), cacao nibs, ground coffee beans, ground eggshells...
