You only have a few days to get in on this sea vegetable giveaway
If you know me, you know that not only do I tout the health benefits of sea vegetables but I go out and harvest them. I consider sea vegetables superfoods of the highest order.
So, when I had a chance to let one of you lucky readers get a gift box of sea vegetables from Maine Coast Sea Vegetables, I jumped at the chance. Unfortunately, I got busy and didn’t have time to write up this post. So, act quickly by commenting below as I will pick a number at 12 midnight on July 26th.
Tell me why you’d like to win sea vegetables (your package might have different items in it) and how you think that you’d use them. I need to be able to contact you via email to get your address where the package will be sent by Friday, July 27th. I will use a random number generator to choose the winning comment.
I will also choose one other person to win a packet of my hand-harvested kombu from the Sonoma Coast and the foraging trip that I lead there.
If you don’t win, I hope that you will go buy some Maine Coast Sea Vegetables as they have such a convenient way of getting them: shaker containers. I love the whole thing about them, especially that they have a number of varieties. My favorites at the Triple Blend Flakes, the dulse with garlic and the kelp with cayenne. You can also get these plain (without seasonings) and in bulk.I also love the smoked dulse for making dishes taste smoky and yummy. The Maine Coast store is closed for a month now from August until September 4th but you can likely find these products at your local natural food store now.
Many people think that sea vegetables contain “too much” sodium and they do have some but they are also a great source of other minerals, including iodine which is extremely important for thyroid function.
My goal here is to tell you just a bit about sea vegetables to get you interested in the possibility of winning, to try them out.
My favorite ways to use sea vegetables:
- as a sprinkle on top of my avocado and sprouts which I eat on rice or corn thins or sprouted corn tortillas. (toast is good, too)
- a strip of kombu (a kelp) goes into each pot of beans
- rehydrated and added to a salad or as the base for a salad
- cooked in with soba noodles for a hot dish or salad with seed or nut butter and vegetables
- nori, as a wrapper for almost anything, a grain, cucumber, avocado
If you use sea vegetables (or seaweed), please tell me how you use it and why you want to win this gift basket.
Please comment below about why you want to win a sea vegetable gift. Good luck.
Please check back on this blog on Friday, July 27th so that I can get your address to send the package. I will announce the winner here since I don’t have your email addresses.
P.S. I can only have these shipped to U.S. addresses but I’d still like to know if you like sea vegetables or why you want to try them. Thanks.
