Have you tried eating seaweed? I know it’s been around for a long time, but I know a lot of people who refuse to try it but man oh man are the missing out. Not only on it’s yummy taste but there are so many great benefits to eating seaweed and reasons we should eat more seaweed!
I used to be scared to try seaweed even though I love fish but I eventually got over my fear of trying seaweed. Today I would tell you just to give it a shot because it’s not only yummy but there are so many great benefits to eating seaweed you are crazy to not at least try, and Annie Chun’s has a new Seaweed Crisp that is amazing and even has a little crunch.
Since some of you may not be aware of all the great benefits of eating seaweed I wanted to share a few of them with you today.
Seaweed gets the superfood status
Superfood status because it’s not just super tasty it has a super nutritional value, it’s versatile, and so many great health benefits.
Don’t forget the vitamins
Did you know that seaweed is an excellent source of proteins, vitamins, minerals, dietary fibers, antioxidants, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and phytochemicals? You’ll find some great vitamins in seaweed such as A, C, D, E, B1, B2, B3 and even B12.
Calcium! OMG Protein too
In addition to all the other great vitamins and minerals you should also know that seaweed contains calcium. Seaweed is known to contain amino acids which are the building blocks for protein. It’s also high in mineral content – iodine, calcium, iron, and magnesium.
Control your appetite
Seaweed can help control your appetite because it helps to control your blood sugar levels as well as keep your bowels in check.
Low in calories
Whether you are on a diet or traveling, you can grab some seaweed snacks and feel good about what you are putting in your body. I love taking Anne’s Seaweed Snacks with us on road trips because it gives the kids something good for them to eat and I get to save money, time, and enjoy eating seaweed with the kids and not feel guilty about what I am eating and feeding my kids.
Taste great & it’s versatile
Seaweed is yummy; I know it’s not for everyone, but it’s worth trying to find out. You can eat seaweed in so many different ways – salads, stir-fries, pasta, stews, casseroles, in a smoothie, alone, or even grab some of Annie Chun’s NEW Seaweed Crisps.
Annie Chun’s took their classic seaweed snack and mixed things up a bit to create a crunchy, savory snack that you won’t find elsewhere. The NEW Seaweed Crisps are their traditional seaweed snack layered over hearty brown rice chips to add a bit of crunch. They are never fried, only baked and contain 80 calories per serving, gluten and cholesterol free with 0g trans-fat per serving. They’re a great snack that you don’t have to feel bad about whether you are at the house or on the go!
I recently had the opportunity to try Annie Chun’s Seaweed Crisps which are OMG, DELICIOUS! I’ve never tried Korean Style BBQ Seaweed Crisps and probably wouldn’t have had they not sent them to me. I mean BBQ and seaweed just don’t seem like something that would go well together. Well, I was wrong because they are by far my favorite and apparently my daughters favorite too because she finished them off without telling me lol. Needless to say, I was a bit upset, but thankfully I stashed the Gochujang and Original flavors somewhere she wouldn’t find them.
If you like seaweed or haven’t tried it, I highly suggest giving Annie Chun’s Seaweed Crisps a try. They come in three different flavors – Original, Gochujang and Korean Style BBQ and are delicious.
