Seaweed is excellent for EVERYTHING. Seriously.

Check out some of the nutritional benefits:

*Nori has twice as much Vitamin C as oranges, packed with beta-carotene like carrots, rich in calcium for your bones, iodine and iron for thyroid, and are great in making sushi.

*Arame is laden with macro minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium and iodine.

*Kelp is high in iodine, which must be present for proper glandular function and metabolism. It also contains phosphorus and calcium, as well as magnesium and potassium. Kelp is a source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, plus amino acids. Because kelp is the saltiest of sea veggies, it makes a popular salt substitute. However, it’s been tested to be low in sodium.

*Wakame is iron-rich and 10 times more calcium than a glass of milk!

Try whipping up a seaweed salad to have on hand. That way you can easily add it to almost any meal during the week. Try eating it with just about anything savoury, for extra valuable nutrients! I used Arame this time. Instead of boiling it like the packet recommended I simply soak the arame in boiling water for 20-30 minutes, then drain.

It went especially well with an unusual ‘pome-chilli’ dressing I made to disguise some of the seaweedy taste. I used one part pomegranate molasses, one part agave, 2 parts macadamia oil, 2 parts apple cider vinegar, 2 small finely sliced organic onions, salt to taste, & chilli flakes (for my lack of fresh cayenne peppers)! A sprinkling of fresh basil (parsley may be used instead with success) from the garden is complementary & the chilli will help distract the tastebuds a little also ;)

You can expect: Shiny hair, clear mind, radiant skin, healthy teeth & gums, thyroid function, immunity, cell regeneration (highly anti-aging), bone & joint function, weight loss, detoxification…& everything else. Think of it as a superfood to enhance your superhuman lifestyle!
