The Amazing Array of Sea Vegetables’ Health-Giving Properties

The Amazing Array of Sea Vegetables’ Health-Giving Properties

October 07, 2019

Sea-Vegetables Powder is one of the powders I use every single day. I put about ½ to 1 teaspoon in our morning soup right after I turn the heat down as the broth comes to a rolling boil.  Generally, when people talk about the benefits of eating sea vegetables, they focus on their rich source of iodine and minerals. Although that is certainly true, it turns out many other reasons exist for consuming a variety of sea vegetables every day. 

 

Sprinkle our Sea-Vegetables Powder over buttered popcorn for an easy and healthy snack.

First, sea vegetables are one of the few readily available truly wild foods.   Our Sea-Vegetables Powder is a blend of wild-harvested dulse, wakame, and kelp from off the coast of Maine. It has been tested and found free of radiation and other common contaminants.  Dulse, otherwise known as red algae, is a traditional food that has been used in European cuisine for at least 1,500 years and shows up in manuals dating back to 600 B.C. on feeding the kings of China to ensure their longevity. Besides being rich in iodine and other minerals such as chromium – used by the body to regulate blood sugar — dulse is also a valuable and rich source of omega 3 fatty acids, often missing from western diets. 

Wakame, which pares well with miso, is known for its abundance of fucoxanthin, which helps prevent and treat obesity.  It seems to do this by lowering harmful levels of fat in the blood.   Kelp is known for many things, but, perhaps most important, it contains sodium alginate, which lowers the absorption of radiation from the gut by 50 to 60 percent. 

Seaweed, a truly wild food, therefore supports thyroid function, helps us achieve our optimal weight, counteracts the damaging effects of radiation exposure, and supplies us with valuable essential fatty acids — all in a package that enhances the flavor of almost any dish.  Our Sea-Vegetables Powder makes the often messy process of cooking with sea vegetables into something as simple as sprinkling a powder into or over a favorite dish.

 

Be well,

Beauty and art play an integral role in gardening regardless of the garden's purpose. Even in the most pragmatic of settings beauty is still necessary; pollinators are naturally attracted to consistently flowering gardens. Bees will even create associative routines to help remember where the nice flowers are thus helping your cucumbers, apple trees, or pumpkin plants to produce more fruit. Perhaps more importantly, focusing on beauty for most people will help to make the garden more inviting and enjoyable in addition to more productive.

How To Get The Most Out Of Harvest Season

September 10, 2020

Early September in Maine is a beautiful time of year. The summer heat and humidity has started to give way to a crisp and clean autumn warmth. The farmer’s markets are abuzz all over the area with profusion and variety. At this point our freezer is about a third full with tomato sauce, hot sauce, and a few other small batch things that will remind us of the harvest the previous year and give us something to look forward to as we look forward.
