Seaweed: Not just for mermaids...

Photo Credit: DB & Hilton


Let me guess, one of your biggest New Year's resolutions was to eat better or fit back into your bikini... In a national survey that was the number one resolution of Americans. Time to shake it up. Add a little seaweed to your nutrition plan. Life on an island certainly has no shortage of seaweed and Triathlete Inside Magazine gave me 500 words to dish the dirt on the yummy green stuff...

First to comment!!! Woohoo!!! Ah - I LOVE that pic. I don't know where to find seaweed here but we have kale and since I read about those benefits I've been indulging.

Chloe said...

yum yum! sounds delicious :)

Jenna said...

I'd be game to give it a try but not sure where the heck I might find seaweed in the middle of the frozen tundra.... but - now - I am on a mission (well for the dried stuff as I think the other stuff might be too much for me:)

Samantha said...

mmmmm....that makes me think of the yummy packet of seaweed flakes you gave me at camp last summer.

Sounds UMMM Yummy. And you dont have to add salt!! I guess if you did it would have to be sea salt. I think I can remember my grandmother eating it, and she will be celebrating her 100th Birthday soon. She also wintered in Hawaii, I think I need to make some changes in my life.
Great article Bree, Pro Triathlete and a great writer as well :) Will there be a chapter on Sea Weed in your Cook Book??

Beth said...

Great writing Bree! I especially like the title. I'll have to check it out and see if Pittsburgh grocery stores sell seaweed too! :)

Mmmm. Seaweed salad = de-lish! Professional triathlete, professional writer, what's next? Painter? Sculptor? Fashion Designer extraordinaire? You are turning into a 21st century renaissance woman. Keep up the good work.

Very well written article! Great information! You sold me with this: "Fucans also have the power to prevent...asthma symptoms." Asthma is a HUGE issue for me and I'd love to find natural remedies to control it rather than to keep medicating. Now I'm off to find seaweed in my neck of the woods!

Teresa said...

Great write up Bree. Looking forward to more:)

Nice article, Bree! Congrats on getting published. ;)

It is almost painful for me to order a seaweed salad at a Japanese restaurant, only because I always complain that it's too small. I would love to find a place that serves up seaweed salad in a Cool Whip size container. Till then, I keep bitching

Not sure about the bikini, but it sure would be nice to get down to 185 before IMFL. May have to check out the seaweed.

I usually work St Anthony's. See you there and have a great year.

No I'd just like to swim with a dolphin :)
Interesting info, thanks for posting it.

I love seaweed. I even got my dad to eat some last Christmas. And he even liked it.

I absolutely love seaweed, always get seaweed salads at sushi places and health-food stores. Thought I was one of the only ones who actually like the stuff, not only for its great nutrition but the actual taste too. Great article, hopefully more people will try it out.
