Crave This: Seaweed Rice in Your VitaClay!

Crave This: Seaweed Rice in Your VitaClay!

Seaweed is a great addition to your diet: most varieties are a great source of iodine, which is a nutrient for which most of us are deficient. 

Studies have shown that increasing our intake of dietary iodine can lessen the risk of many types of cancer, including breast and prostate cancers. Increasing iodine can also support and heal the thyroid and prevent thyroid problems. 

I love the taste of seaweed: it's a salty treat that almost tastes like potato chips to me; so when I'm craving something salty and filling, I grab a packet of nori and start crunching: it's a great healthy alternative to other salty snacks!

I also love to add seaweed to my rice, and it's so easy to do! The seaweed adds a slightly fishy, salty flavor that you will love and it goes with almost any dish. If you don't like to snack on seaweed sheets like I do, this is a great way to get a lot of crucial minerals and nutrients into your diet.
