K is for Kelp

  I found Kelp (seaweed) at the health food store.  I was extremely interested.

Interesting that it says to "please check for occasional tiny hidden pebbles or shells in the fronds" .

I tried eating it straight out of the package.

It was very chewy & salty & had an aftertaste of how a bale of hay smells.
There are instructions to use it in soups, salads, in beans and as a snack or garnish.

Looking at the back of the package...
Service size is 1/3 of a cup.
17 calories
0 fat
3g carbs
3g fiber
1 g protein

A whopping 0 Weight Watchers Points Plus !

and if it's important to anyone - 2110% of your daily allowance of iodine!!

The only issue I have is that it gets stuck in my teeth, blargh.

Random weird food that fits the letter of the day...

The sign at the store said it is extremely bitter & crisp, is a good source of magnesium and zinc and you grind it up for soups & stews. 
Ummm, no. 


  1. Hey Lisa, I'm with you on the Weight Watcher pro point value = 0 ops - wonder if it will become a regular contender on the Healthy and Filling list? I've only tried it as part of sushi - I think that's what they wrap it up in, huh. Good post :) - Popped in from the A-Z Challenge. Not far to the half way mark.

    1. I should take it in to show my leader, I wonder if she's ever tried it? I still haven't tried sushi, I know a lot of people love it so I can't be that bad, right??
      yay, almost-halfway!


Leave a note - they make me feel loved!
