Seaweed

seaweedSeaweed is chock full of vitamins. It is a shame that some of us only consume it when eating sushi. Seaweed contains zinc, magnesium, iron, potassium, and iodine. Like most sea grown vegetables, it also contains a number of omega-3 fatty acids, which help to promote a healthy heart and have been known to prevent stroke. The easiest way to consume seaweed is to get the regular sushi sheets and roll up your favorite preparation of rice or other vegetables, or find packages of dried seaweed that you can easily rehydrate. There are several varieties of seaweed and you really can’t go wrong with any of them. Explore with different kinds, then incorporate your favorite into your diet, and reap all of the nutritional benefits.
