If there's one thing, aside from leafy greens, that I would recommend people start incorporating into their diet, it would definitely be sea vegetables!
They're loaded with vitamins and minerals, including trace minerals! I can't say enough about how wonderful they are. Here's a great resource on all their nutritional and health benefits http://tinyurl.com/ybduhw
And here's one of my favorite sea veggie recipes...
Start by soaking 1 cup of your favorite sea veggies in 1 cup of water to soften them. Make sure to use clean water (not tap). Discard excess water. You can even buy an assorted mix of different sea vegetables.
For the Asian dressing...
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp raw honey
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil (enhances flavor)
1/2 tsp Tamari soy sauce
1/8 tsp grated ginger
Whisk together dressing ingredients and toss over the sea veggies. Garnish with sesame seeds. Enjoy!
