Why you should eat seaweed for breakfast
If you know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but aren't sure how to get the most out of it for weight loss, you should consider cooking with seaweed.
Although healthy and consistent breakfasts are tied to several benefits, many Americans are still skipping the meal. Most recent surveys show that 32 percent of Americans between the ages of 20 and 29 don't eat breakfast every day. Research shows that skipping breakfast can negatively affect weight by reducing metabolic rate by 10 percent and by forfeiting the opportunity to absorb the necessary nutrients and sources of energy required to start the day, resulting in sluggishness and inactivity.
But just eating a breakfast isn't always enough to help weight loss efforts. A good breakfast should feature essential nutrients such as protein, whole grains, fiber and calcium. This is where seaweed comes in. With a balanced nutritional profile that contains the proteins and carbohydrates recommended for breakfast as well as versatility as an ingredient, seaweed is a great option to fulfill your nutritional needs in the morning. Additionally, seaweed promotes weight loss. According to research by the Centre for Food Innovation at Sheffield Hallam University, men who ate a breakfast that included seaweed as an ingredient consumed 179 less calories per day.
You can include seaweed in your next breakfast by using it as a key ingredient, whether you mix it up in an omelet or add it to a breakfast sandwich. Or, if you're looking for more subtle ways to use seaweed, try seasoning with it. Its low sodium content makes it a great salt replacement.
