making Carbs Count in the diabetic diet

P

eople have been eating

certain seaweeds

since the dawn of

time - there's a lot of

the stuff been found

in fossils proving how long it's been

gracing the world's seas. It's a regular

element in some cuisines especially in

Asia. In Japan sheets of dried seaweed

are used to wrap sushi and you may be

familiar with crispy fried seaweed from

your local Chinese takeaway.

However, it can easily be used in many

other recipes, from salads to soups. A

coastal visit in the UK can yield enough

of the ingredient to use if you fancy a bit

of foraging.

Edible seaweeds are nutritious

vegetables - so packed full of vitamins and

minerals that they are even being used for

skincare products, so they can be good

for you on the inside and the outside.

vitamin C from seaweeds.
