Have you tried seaweed as a snack? In the past, my daughter and I have loved seaweed salad, but I find it to be a little pricey, so it’s more of a treat than something we eat regularly. Fresh seaweed has an interesting chewy texture that I really enjoy, I must admit, I’m a texture person.
Recently I found out about seaweed snacks – believe it or not, they were free samples at Costco! Seaweed snacks are thin sheets of roasted seaweed that you eat as a snack, as a topping on salads or rice or rolled up with rice to make rice rolls or sushi. SeaSnax offered to send me some to try, and then to give some away to one of my readers as a giveaway! Awesome.

Seasnax stands out for me as a brand because they care about the environment. They may ship from Korea, as opposed to being locally grown, but the dried seaweed is so light, it’s hard for me to get upset about that when I know that people are shipping water all over the world! The company is family owned and run and they take care that all their seaweed is sustainably harvested. It’s also certified to be non-GMO.
Interestingly, I frequently found myself craving seaweed last spring. Then my accupuncturist tested me for iodine deficiency and found that I was somewhat deficient. Ever since he started me on an iodine pill, I’ve stopped craving seaweed, but I still love to eat it! Seaweed has idodine in it, as well other vitamins and minerals.
