How to incorporate seaweed into your next BBQ
Summer is here, which means you're probably looking forward to your next cookout. If you're trying to watch what you eat, though, you know that barbecue foods can be really unhealthy. Red meats can clog your arteries, potato salads contain a lot of fat and it seems that everything has entirely too much sodium these days.
To enjoy a healthy alternative to your favorite backyard barbecue foods, try making some of them with seaweed.
Make a fresh summer salad
Salads may not be everyone's favorite dish at a cookout, but you could certainly make yours the talk of the yard by adding in some delicious seaweed instead of your typical ingredients. If the flavors alone don't start the excitement, the nutritional content certainly will.
Garnish your burgers
If you can't miss out on the classics, try improving on them instead. Cook up a healthy veggie or lean turkey burger and garnish it with seaweed for extra pops of flavor and nutrition.
Mix it in your cocktails
Mixologists across the country are getting creative by incorporating seaweed flavors in their drinks, according to the Food Network. This summer, you can do the same by experimenting with how this healthy ingredient can invigorate your favorite drinks.
