It’s been a while since I’ve eaten seaweed. Seaweed is so good for you, it really should be a part of the daily diet. It is packed full of vitamins, minerals, and rare trace elements. Seaweeds are algae and have unique health and nutritional properties. Seaweed has been a main source of “green” food for thousands of years. It’s not only super healthy, it’s delicious, and cheap to buy.
Today’s recipe is simple, yet fun. Instead of making the traditional maki sushi, I used cucumbers for the roll, and left out the “rice”. Here’s the recipe:
1 small bag (about 10g) mixed sea vegetables (dry or fresh)
1 extra large peeled cucumber (cut in half, and insides scooped out)
1 avocado (chopped)
1/2 English cucumber (peeled and finely chopped)
1/4-1/3 cup raw almond slices
1/4 cup raw sesame seeds
1-2 tsp ACV (apple cider vinegar)
drizzle nama shoyu or coconut aminos
drizzle virgin olive oil
drizzle raw honey or agave (optional)
Combine seaweed, nuts and seeds, English cucumber, avocado, spices, oil and vinegar, aminos, and sweetener. Mix well. Spoon as much salad mixture into the hollowed cucumber halves as will fit. Slice into 1/2″ to 3/4″ thick slices. Serve with Nama Shoyu or chili sauce or with slices of ginger and avocado. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top.

After yoga class tonight, a fellow student, and myself started talking with our instructor about healthy foods, sugars, fats, and lean meals. My yoga instructor mentioned how she loves cucumbers and mushrooms together for a meal – so I thought, “Wow! That sounds like a grand idea!” So I made my own! “Thanks Ana!” That’s my yoga instructor’s name…
So this recipe is very simple, filling, and super delicious!!! Enjoy!
1 large cucumber (peeled and sliced into thin rounds)
1 to 1 1/2 cups Crimini mushrooms (stemmed, and sliced)
1/2 T Bragg’s Sea Kelp Delight Seasoning (or just plain kelp flakes will do)
dash sea salt
dash garlic powder
Combine all ingredients in a big bowl, toss well, then serve. That’s it!
It doesn’t get any easier than that! =)

3T hemp seeds
2-3 handfuls baby Heirloom tomatoes (chopped in halves)

dash sea salt and garlic powder
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and toss well. Ready to serve.

It’s Thursday, and I’m out of groceries. So I needed to be simple yet creative with preparing my meal. I had a variety of bell peppers (which I love), and some fresh corn, as well as some micro herbs – and now I have salad!
1 red bell pepper (seeded and chopped)
1 orange bell pepper (seeded and chopped)
1 yellow bell pepper (seeded and chopped)
2 ears of corn (removed from cob)
1-2 handfuls micro herbs
dash sea salt
dash garlic powder
favorite salad dressing (my choice, Bragg’s Organic Ginger & Sesame Salad Dressing)
Combine all the ingredients and toss well. Place on a plate and drizzle your favorite dressing on top. Garnish with nuts or seeds if desired.
