When I get paid this week I want to order sea veggies. In Tonya Zavasta's book she mentioned that she ate sea vegetables a few times a week, and her hair is gorgeous! So.. I too want to eat sea veggies a few times a week for longer, more beautiful hair. What sea veggies have the highest nutritional value? And what is your favorite? And do they all come in a raw form?

I have read that during and after the Korean war they did autopsies on US soldiers and those young guys had fatty build up in their arteries. The Korean boys autopsied did not have this at all. I asked someone and she said it is because of all the sea vegetables that the Koreans eat. That is all I know. I only tried cooked recipes on the ones I bought and the recipes were disgusting. I have not tried since raw.

I have tried hijiki, dulse, kelp, and maybe laver (what nori is made of). I like dulse best. I don't make recipes where dulse is a main ingredient; I sprinkle a gram or two on my salad.

I really like arame, soaked and used on salads or in pastas or stir raw's or nori rolls... :p yeah, I really like it. I also like dulse sprinkled on stuff or added to blended salads or other recipes for the saltiness factor. Nori is a mainstay for rolls. Those are the 3 I use the most. Although if I could find a source for sea lettuce, I'd eat that a lot too ;)

www.seaveg.com is great, and has sea lettuce too.
I just wish that they had wakame, my personal favorite.
Wakame, dulse, laver (and nori sheets) are my favorites, and I also like alaria, and sometimes kelp.

I love nori sheets....and dulse. I also recently bought kelp granules...and grind them up in my coffee grinder and make powder and use it as seasoning. I love the "sea" flavor. Other people don't really like it, but when I taste that I know I'm eating something good for myself!

Looking at the nutritional chart on seaveg.com, I see why she has such nice hair! The vitamin A content in all of them is HUGE!
Here's the link for your viewing pleasure lol

I only like nori. I dont usually eat it raw but I hear its a good snack to eat shred of nori. I like my veggie sushi. :D

Hmmmm, I remember my mother using those long strips of fresh raw seaweed as a child to make seaweed soup. It's really thin and fun to eat. :)

Thanks everyone. And Shmoopie thanks for showing the nutritional chart.. I think I am going to order the big bag of it and eat it a few times a week. How does it taste?? Your talking to someone who has NEVER even tried sushi!

maine sea coast makes a raw organic dulse, you buy it in a bag, eat it like a snack right out of the bag. you can dehydrate as well for "chips" . It is tested for heavy metals as well. It's REALLY good when you have salt cravings, and for an on the go snack.
hmm now im craving it!!!

I LOVEEEEE nori sheets (the raw vegan ones). I never liked them before and considered them too fishy. Now I LOVE them (the fish free ones really do taste different to me).
We wrap them around everything.
We also are using alot of dulse flakes. I don't like the powder as much though - too strong.
