All the information in the world is of little value if we are not able to implement it in to our everyday lives. This is particularly true with the onslaught of dietary and nutrition information with which we are so intrigued. And, it has been brought to my attention that some of the most beneficial foods are a little less than mainstream and finding simple ways in which to implement “super-foods” may prove frustrating. That being said, one of the foods with which I am extremely smitten, seaweed, can be quite intimidating for those uninitiated to its benefit and discouraging for those unaccustomed to cooking with more exotic foods. So, here are a few great ways to integrate seaweed into your diet and receive the wealth of nutritional benefits that sea vegetables hold. Now is the best time to get creative in the kitchen and empower yourself to create lasting change!
First things first, kombu dashi (stock) is a great base for soups, steps and pretty much anything that needs to be cooked in liquid. It’s super simple and is quite possibly the easiest way to step up your seaweed game.
