The consumption of Seaweed –also known as sea vegetables or sea plants-has increased over the past several years due to the popularity that superfoods have gained. There is an increasing interest of people wanting to feel and look better, lose weight and have more energy.
While these plants have become more popular recently, Asians have consumed them for centuries. But thankfully people are waking up to the possibilities of how they can benefit from these miracle sea plants.
Superfoods such as seaweed are foods that provide essential nutrients by consuming small amounts on a regular basis. Consuming high quantities doesn’t make it better for your health, instead, like with all other foods, we must consume them in moderation for it to be beneficial to our health.
The most popular types of seaweed are kombu, dulse, kelp, wakame, fukus and sea spaghetti. They can easily be found in specialised food stores.
Besides their versatility in food preparation, they add a unique colour and texture unlike any other foods. They can be added to the classic miso soup, vegetable soups, salads or as a side dish. They can also be consumed in powdered form, like spirulina and chlorella and added to smoothies.
Are you including sea vegetables in your diet? With all the benefits they offer, they’re a must-have for a balanced and healthy diet!
