Where to add seaweed into your meals
So you know that adding seaweed into your diet is good for you — and that's a great start! Knowing is half the battle, after all, and the sooner one realizes that this sea vegetable contains healthy antioxidants, phenols and essential fatty acids, the sooner you can begin taking advantage of these seaweed benefits yourself. The hard part, though, is figuring out where and how exactly to add these greens into your diet. If you've never eaten seaweed before, where would you start?
To help you get off on the right foot, Smithsonian Magazine has narrowed the options for cooking with seaweed down to a few essentials:
- Salad: It only makes sense to add seaweed into a salad, considering that it is a vegetable after all. You can swap out other greens for seaweed or sprinkle on herbal supplements like Seagreens® The Mineral Salt or The Culinary Ingredient for an extra burst of flavor and nutrition.
- Soup: This is another simple, newbie-friendly way to begin eating seaweed. You can use this sea vegetable as either the main ingredient — to create dishes like Shittake Mushroom Miso Soup — or just as a flavor enhancer in some of your other go-to soups.
Seaweed nutrients not only lend themselves to tastier meals, they also go a long way in improving overall nutrition and well-being. To begin reaping these health benefits for yourself, try Seagreens seaweed, proven by independent research studies to boast levels of quality and nutrition higher than that of regular seaweed.
