Weight Loss Power Food - Seaweed

While this algae is a popular health food in Japan, it rarely makes it into U. S. homes.

Why it's healthy: There are four classes of seaweeds—green, brown, red, and blue-green—and they're all packed with healthful nutrients. Seaweeds are a great plant source of calcium. They're also loaded with potassium, which is essential for maintaining healthy blood-pressure levels. Low potassium and high sodium intake can cause high blood pressure. Most people know to limit sodium, but another way to combat the problem is to take in more potassium.

How to eat it: In sushi, of course. You can also buy sheets of dried seaweed at Asian groceries, specialty health stores, or online at
edenfoods.com. Use a coffee grinder to grind the sheets into a powder. Then use the powder as a healthy salt substitute that's great for seasoning salads and soups…….Personally, I might be ok with it ground up & mixing it with other foods. Don’t know what it tastes like, I’m just giving you the benefit of what I dig up. [ Don’t care for raw fish, either. ] Any hoo, this is what I have for you today. I never said weight loss was going to be easy. Hope this weight loss tip is helpful.
As always, I look forward to your comments & suggestions. Thanks for visiting Terry
