My Current Obsession: Seaweed Salad

Oh look what washed up on the blog! (Get it? Because it's called "Living at the Beach"...)
I know what some of you are thinking: "Eww!" or maybe some of you adventurous folks are thinking "OMG YUM!"
 This sesame seaweed salad is from Whole Foods and it is seriously the best thing ever! Perfect
 combination of sour (vinegar) balanced by sugar and fresh taste of sesame. 
Seaweed is also really good for you because it contains iodine. According to this source, consuming healthy levels of iodine is important to maintaining a healthy thyroid, which regulates hormones. A malfunctioning thyroid results in fatigue, muscle weakness, high cholesterol, etc. Seaweed  is full of antioxidants that prevents inflammation. PLUS research has shown that seaweed controls estrogen levels which means it can control PMS!! Umm, is that cool or what?

Are you going to be trying seaweed? Maybe this salad?
