The health benefits of Seaweed and how to make the most of them

Seaweed Burren SmokehouseThis month's special offer (which we send to the subscribers - and is exclusively available - by our monthly email newsletter) promotes our Burren Smoked Irish Organic Salmon with Seaweed, our most successful and multi- award-winning salmon marinade to date. This made us think about the health benefits of seaweed again, and that we all need to be reminded of them every now and again to incorporate seaweed into our lives.

We have gathered great beneficial information on our own website, and we also found another website with things worth knowing about the internal and external health benefits of seaweed. A link to it is on our website.

If you are hesitant as to how to go about including a healthier, seaweed-induced way of living, we have some recommendations for you.

A good introduction to the whole subject of seaweed is the seaweed safari with Wild Irish Sea Veg. They offer dried seaweed to be used in your nutrition, and also have a great seaweed skin care range!

If you want inspiration for healthy and delicious meals, turn to Prannie Rhatigan's website and her fabulous cook book which contains a lot of information on, and recipes with, seaweed.

And last but not least, we can recommend going on a foraging tour with Oonagh O'Dwyer from Wild Kitchen. She offers foraging for seaweed walks, and then makes meals out of the yield at the end of the discovery walk for everybody to enjoy.
