Who In The World Eats Sushi?

1999 - Who in the world eats Seaweed? That was my first question when my husband first introduced me to California sushi roll...

2008-  It became my three A's first choice, immediately I became part of it.

2013 -  Experimented Homemade Sushi

To introduce about Sushi, it is a Japanese dish consisting of small balls or rolls of vinegar-flavored cold cooked rice served with a garnish of raw fish, vegetables, seaweed or egg.

Health Benefits Of Seaweed: 

***No matter how healthy the food may be Moderation+Exercise is the key to being healthy

1. Seaweed offers the broadest range of minerals of any food on the planet, containing 10-20 times the mineral concentration of land plants, plus it’s high in protein and fiber. 
2. That’s why a serving can be so low in calories (25-100) and packed with flavor and nutrients. 
3. Seaweed is an excellent source of iodine and vitamin K and a very good source of folate, magnesium, iron, and calcium. 
4. Seaweed also contains measurable amounts of vitamins C and E, which help the absorption of all the other good stuff.
