July 11, 2017 3 min read

Two Recipes Using Some of Nature's Most Nutritious Superfoods 

At Vitality Herbs & Clay, we get lots of questions about food. “If I can’t eat sugar, bread, oils, sweets, brassicas, soda, chips, pasta, tomatoes, nuts, cheese, meat, dairy…..What CAN I eat??? One option is to boost your intake of sea vegetables with the following tasty recipes!

Seaweed is one of Mother Nature’s most nutritious vegetables. It is packed with macro minerals and trace minerals, amino acids, electrolytes, hormone precursors, and many other little-known phyto-nutrients.

Sea vegetables contain 10-20 times the minerals of land foods and an abundance of vitamins and other elements needed for metabolism. It is an excellent source of iodine, magnesium, iron, sodium, silica, potassium, and calcium. Sea vegetables contain a wide variety of proteins (red seaweeds can be as high as 47% of dry weight) and healthful (good for you) carbohydrates. (Nutritional and antioxidant properties of different brown and red Spanish edible seaweeds)

Sea vegetables provide one of the most effective ways to keep the body’s pH in balance. Seaweeds are extremely effective at neutralizing heavy metals (like radiation) and chemical pollutants.

Here are just a few of the ways sea vegetables can be used to add a powerhouse of nutrients to your diet:

1) Some dried seaweed makes a yummy alternative to potato chips and other salty snacks.

2) Kelp noodles can be used as a pasta substitute.

3) Dried sea vegetables add a subtle & exotic element to soups, casseroles & stir-fries.

4) Nori sea vegetable sheets can be used as a tortilla, to make sushi with, or as seaweed chips.

5) Purple Dulse can be used as a salt substitute.

6) You can also take Sea Vegetable Blend plus Moringa, a nutritious combination of energy-building seaweeds, algae, and Moringa.

(Good sources for the sea vegetables mentioned above can be found at the end of this article.)

Here are two recipes using sea vegetables:

Nori Chips

Nori sheets, raw

Himalayan saltsole (pronounced so-LAY)

Food dehydrator

Use as many sheets of nori as your food dehydrator will hold. I cut the nori sheets in half so they will fit in my dehydrator. Spray the sheets with Himalayan salt sole. Dehydrate at 95 degrees for approximately 1 hour, or until crisp. Cut with scissors into bite sized pieces.
