Hello! Here are a couple of recipes for wakame as promised in my last post. In case you missed it Wakame is high in sulfate polyfucose which is inhibits the activity of enzymes which break down collagen, elastin and hyalauric acid. In addition Wakame is high in calcium, potassium, vitamin A, B group vitamins, iodine, omega 3 and omega 6. Its a top anti aging food. As usual, I always recommend food over supplements, and with seaweed supplements, its most definately possible to go overboard. If you have a thyroid condition or take anticoagulant medication you need to be careful about it. Its possible to get too much iodine, so only eat it a couple of times per week. Also, get an organic one. Seaweeds can have a lot of heavy metal conaminants.
These recipes enrich you from the DNA level out
Wakame Salad: (Basic)
1 and a half ounces dried wakame seaweed
4 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon honey (raw if you can get it)
juice of ½ lemon
2 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon dried chili
¼ cup sesame seeds
Rehydrate the wakame seaweed by soaking in a bowl of warm water, enough to cover well.
When rehydrated slice into thin stripes In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and mix well. Once the seaweed has been reconstituted, toss with dressing and let sit at least 30 minutes before serving. Will keep up to a week in the refrigerator.
