This living salad is one of the highlights of my Surf Spa Food menu and was first published on this website in November 2012. In this episode of HealthtalksTV above Dr. Nat Kringoudis and I talk about the healing properties of sea vegetables.

Here’s a excerpt from my book The Healing Feeling which you can buy here. Sea vegetables have long being a source of great healing properties in the East since 3000 B.C., and now contemporary cuisine has begun to embrace these mineral rich marine algae with abundance. They possess a highly concentrated source of nutrients, including high protein and iron content, with high levels of manganese, potassium, phosphorous, sodium, zinc and calcium.

Hijiki and nori seaweeds contain sizeable amounts of vitamin A, B, C &D, and are one of the few plant foods to produce vitamin B12, making it an excellent addition to a vegan diet. Nori is extremely high in protein and may also be used crumbled over salads and soups, while hijiki is rich in fibre, iron and calcium and has a sweet delicate flavour.

They are considered to be contractive and have an alkalising effect on the blood and, according to Paul Pichford who I certified with as a whole foods practitioner, “contain mucilaginous gels which may have a rejuvenating effect on the lungs and gastrointestinal tract”.
