I have recently been craving lighter, easy digestable, raw foods, I think it’s down to eating so much heavy cooked foods over the winter that I’ve reached my limit and my body is over it lol. This is one of my favourite raw salads as it has so much flavour and textures not to mention being utterly abundant in vitamins and nutrients. There is an ingredient in my Raw Kelp Kale Noodle Salad Recipe that some of you may not of heard of before that I want to introduce you to… kelp noodles. When I discovered these I quickly became obsessed and used them in practically everything for a while but today I’m sharing one of my favourite ways.
Kelp noodles are basically seaweed that has been made into noodles, they are prepared using three ingredients, kelp (a sea weed), sodium alginate (natural salt derived from brown seaweed), and water, with no additional fillers. So that’s all you should see on the back of the packet! They contain absolutely no fat, cholesterol, protein or sugar and are packed with a number of nutrients like iron, calcium, vitamin K, A and exceptionally high in iodine which is vital in metabolism and thyroid function as well as fucoidan which helps to prevent the blood clotting preventing many dangerous health problems including strokes and heart attacks.
Let’s do this….
