I bought wakame to give it a try. I soaked it for a few minutes then rinsed and put about a tablespoon in my smoothie, not bad. But what other ways can it be used. I'm just trying to eat some sea vegetables because of my hypothyroidism, for which I take meds.

I like it with cilantro, avocado, green onion, mango, tomato and some lemon juice all mixed into a salad. Delicious!

I've been using Alissa's Green Food Powder and Spirulina Pacifica and I know the combo of them has helped my hypothroidism. Have you read the "I'm off my thyroid meds" thread? I KNOW it has helped. That and being 100% raw.
I've also added dulce and kelp flakes to the occasional salad I eat. I don't eat many salads at all anymore. I add the green powders to my smoothies.
Here's what Alissa's GF powder containes:

I really enjoy wakame....I use it where ever I need salt or where I used to use "bacon bits" and the like. I like to roll both avo and bananas in it just before I eat it...so it still stays crunchy. Also in trail mix as long as there is little or no moist items in it. If you use miso it is great in the soup...(miso will "melt" with water under 112 degrees. Yum Also if you can make it into small flakes it is great in nut pates.... When you marinate veggies it can be used instead of salt-it adds flavor and draws out water....I hope that helps....MamaP
