I love looking around my local Asian supermarket. I found a whole section of seaweed and seaweed related products (though the products seem to contain lots of ingredients that are far removed from Paleo). Seaweed is something I’ve never had at home before – and certainly haven’t cooked with – and I’m curious to try.
Seaweed is supposed to be a great source of iodine that is otherwise hard to obtain through diet, but which plays a crucial role in the thyroid. It contains lots of different health promoting minerals.
I’ve been looking into what I can do with different types of Seaweed. Apparently dulse granules can be sprinkled on many foods and nori can be used to make paleo wraps! Kelp is supposed to be good as a snack on its own.
Next time I venture near the Asian grocery store, I’m definitely going to buy some!
Have you incorporated Seaweed into your diet? What is a good type and dish to start experimenting with? I’d be very interested to hear your seaweed comments, below!
