Crispy and savory, seaweed snacks can be tasty additions to many different diets, including Whole30, paleo, ketogenic, and vegan. Their high concentrations of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants also make them nutritional powerhouses, as healthy as they are yummy. For example, because they’re so rich in iodine and tyrosine, they are a great way to support proper thyroid function and hormone regulation.
Snack On Sustainable, Organic, and Non-GMO Seaweed
Seaweed snacks have all the airiness and crispiness of a cracker or chip, except even lighter and packed with unique nutritional value. Seaweed varieties such as nori are typically roasted and seasoned with sea salt and spices to create a satisfying and very low-calorie snack. Look for organic and non-GMO options, as well as for snacks made from seaweed that was sustainably farmed.
