View Full Version : Sea Vegetables

I have been doing a lot of research on Sea Vegetables and would like to include them in my diet. I am wondering if anyone here eat them regularly and if you have noticed any added benefits? I think I will start with Sea weed salad so if you have any recipes. I bought some arame, wakame and kelp today.

I just had wakame tonite. Someone else,(I can't remember who it was), posted something about a soup with wakame, shitake mushrooms, flax meal, and other stuff. I liked the wakame but the soup was way too salty. I just soaked the wakame in water that was 100 degrees and it made the water oober salty. I will change what I do next time because it has potential.

I just use it as a wrap for Vegetables, nothing fancy. I guess you could use it in a smoothie, I never have.

I'm a wakame fan as well as dulse (the pulple kind). I add dulse to salads...just toss it in as is...the wakame can do same or even soak it first...I hate nori, but have eaten it however....
I have had kombu in the past...not a big fan of this....the other two are my favorites above.
I soak arame or hijiki for a few minutes, then toss them into salads. You need very little. I also love wrapping avocado and either apple or tomatoes in nori to make rolls.
Does anyone have any views on the dangers of over-dosing on iodine if you eat a lot of sea veg? I did read somewhere that this could be a problem, though not with nori which doesn't contain enough for that to be a problem.

yes, I did read something about eating a lot everyday something like 2 plates full, could possibly cause Hypothyroidism. If you were to stop eating it, the Thyroid would re-balance itself after a few weeks. I think a daily intake of 1 oz. is good.

arame is almost always precooked
