Roasted Seaweed Snacks

seaweed snakI can’t get my kids to eat fish, but they will eat seaweed. Think about that for a moment, pretty strange. Seaweed tastes more fishy than a piece of fish, but yet it gets eaten in this house regularly. In a quest of never giving up and trying to get my kids to love vegetables I decided to give this a chance a few years ago. They LOVE it. In fact, its crazy how much they love Seaweed Snacks, They practically shovel it into their mouths in a mess. There is no elegant way to eat seaweed snacks because they are a crispy crumbly mess. So in addition to our puny rotation of carrots and cucumbers, we have seaweed as well in our vegetable portion of dinner. You may have walked by the display at Mrs. Greens or at the Supermarket, or you tried these already and decided they don’t work for you.  Heres why you should be adding Roasted Seaweed snacks into your health routine. They are 100% all natural, gets spiced up with a little wholesome flavoring and can give you that crunch you may be missing or craving.

ITS CONFUSING OUT THERE! There are a lot of brands and not all are as pure as they should be.

We have  SeaSnax brand in our house these days.

Here’s why: There is no added sugar, no corn oil and it’s Organic. There are no weird ingredients added to seaweed like flour or starch.  Its pure, and that’s why I prefer it. The scoop is; that some foods are going to have more stuff added to it than others, but when it comes to the awesomeness of seaweed it’s just not necessary to have the extra stuff in there.  I hope this SIMPLEFOODSCOOP helps you sift through the sea of growing seaweed choices out there!

Seaweed Health Scoop

  • Sea Vegetables have unique mineral contents that is needed in our body. While the amount is minimal in a snack like these they still do contain Iodine which is needed for healthy thyroid function which regulates metabolism. Iodine is found mostly in vegetables, and fish especially those grown closer to the sea. A really interesting function of sea veggies are that Sea vegetables are known to bind heavy metals and radioactive pollutants that are present in the environment and remove them from the body.

Munch away and hope you enjoy the scoop!

    After my daughter tasted a friend’s Seaweed snack (smells gross!), she’s become obsessed. What am I going to say, “No, you can’t eat one of the healthiest foods because it stinks.” Instead, I’m enjoying this “go green” moment and about to stock up. I found another organic company gimMe, Teriyaki flavored Roasted Seaweed Snacks- they’re actually pretty good. Thanks for the post!
