View Full Version : Iodine
06-16-2007, 01:39 AM
I am new and open to the idea of raw foods and I have a question that I have not seen addressed. What food source in the raw food lifestyle provides the body with a good source of iodine? I received my book & DVD this week and have not come across this issue being addressed. I just completed day 1 of the Master Cleanse and I plan to move from the cleanse to raw foods. I want to continue to educate myself before I move completely into this lifestyle. I apologize if this issue has been addressed but I am new to this forum. Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge on this matter. Have a Blessed Day.

Any sort of seaweed. There are brown, green, and red seaweeds, which are no more closely related to each other than moss and mulberries; they all contain iodine, and lots of other minerals, as long as they grow in the sea.
Laver (red) - chopped laver formed into sheets is called nori
Sea lettuce (green)
and lots of others.
If you get dulse, make sure it is hammered dulse. Appalachian mountain dulse doesn't grow in the sea ;)

Thanks for your assistance, now where do I find these items and what is the best way to eat them? In other words, some good recipes, thanks.

My local HFS (health food store) sells the dulce and kelp flakes, which I use in salads. Wakame I get there also and make Alissa's wakame salad - good! Alissa sells the nori sheets (awesome for raw sushi - http://www.alissacohen.com/shop/product.php?productid=32&cat=5&page=1)
The possibilities are endless as to how and what to use any sea veggies in.
Also -Alissa's green food powder contains sea veggies - I add this and Spirulina (blue/green algae) to my smoothies. Good stuff!

Thanks for the insight, the dulce and kelp flakes are they fresh or dried? I live in a small town and there is a health food store here but they do not sell fresh fruit or vegetables. Thanks.

Mine are dried. They say RAW on the packaging. Gotta watch it though, the same brand of nori flakes said roasted? toasted? You don't want that! I bet if they don't carry them (your HFS) if you ask they would. The brand I get is Maine Coast Seasonings. They are raw, organic...

Someone started a thread today about kelp pasta and it looked good. There was a link to the product site.
