My family LOVES seaweed snacks – especially my kids! It goes in school lunches every day. We use it as wraps for salmon and avocado dinners, and it makes a great snack folded over homemade goat cheese.
If you have never tried seaweed snacks, you may be surprised by how incredibly delicious and addictive they can be. This ocean vegetable is an incredible source of minerals. Natural iodine makes it excellent for thyroid health (a.k.a healthy metabolism), and in Chinese medicine seaweed is used medicinally to “soften nodules and accumulation” – which somehow always translates in my head to cellulite reduction.
I love this quote by the famous herbalist Susan Weed about seaweed for fertility and women’s health:
Seaweed flows and shifts like the energy of a woman. Saline solutions of ocean and uterus rock in rhythm. Pulses of tide, menstruation, heartbeat, and fertility join seaweeds and wombs. Nourishing breast milk merges with waves of green fronds.
Unlike other seaweed snacks, this brand are lightly toasted with real olive oil (not canola!) and sea salt. If you don’t already adore this stuff, prepare to fall in love with seaweed snacks!
