Eating healthy seaweed has many benefits

Seaweed is a superfood, there’s no official scientific definition of a superfood, but it’s generally accepted that superfoods contain high levels of much-needed vitamins and minerals. They can also be a source of antioxidants, substances that shield our bodies from cell damage and help prevent disease.

Seaweed for Lunch -Unlike their land-bound counterparts, sea-grown vegetables are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which may prevent sudden heart attack and stroke. Seaweed is also full of important minerals, such as bone-friendly calcium and magnesium, as well as iron, potassium, iodine, and zinc. An easy way to incorporate seaweed into the diet is by taking sheets of nori (the kind they use for sushi) and layer on some cooked brown rice and sliced vegetables. Then roll it all together to make a quick lunchtime wrap instead of bread.
