It’s more than hype — eat seaweed now for a healthier diet
Sometimes it's difficult to tell what food is actually healthy for you and what's just the latest hype. Time Magazine set about to discover whether seaweed lived up to all the talk surrounding its nutritional value and trendiness. The answer was a resounding yes.
"In Korean culture, seaweed is like bread," one Korean man told Time. "It's a very sacred part of our culture. It is served to us in soup on our birthday and given to women for three weeks after childbirth. In ancient Korean folklore, the tradition came about by watching whales eat seaweed after giving birth. According to our elders, it is supposed to replenish and rejuvenate the body."
Seaweed has been used in Asian cultures for hundreds of years as a staple food crop, and Americans are just now catching up. Seaweed is packed with vitamins, minerals and trace elements that help our bodies to function at their very best. It's also a wonderful source of calcium, Vitamin D and fiber.
