Seaweed as you will know from Andrew Loosely’s last newsletter is a great addition to soups and casseroles.
It is rich in minerals and can help to reduce weight. Andrew particularly recommended it during March which is the natural time to lose weight. All good!
I see in the press that seaweed’s weight-losing abilities are now going to be used as an addition in junk food! The thinking being that nobody can do without their junk food, so the best plan is to make it secretly help you to lose weight.
I suppose this is for two reason
The idea of eating seaweed is weird. After all you could be at the beach and look down at the seaweed and you would be unlikely to think of having a quick munch!
Seaweed may not be on sale in places where you can buy junk food. It is mostly in health food shops.
Seaweed is presented in thin sheets and in fact doesn’t look like what we think of as seaweed at all. It is not universally available in mainstream supermarkets here in the UK.
