A Crispy Seaweed Treat for Vegan Athletes

If you are vegan, or just looking for healthy, nutritious snacks, you might want to try GimMe Organics’ Premium Roasted Seaweed.The first thing that stood out to me was the variety of flavors. The sesame and olive oil-flavored seaweed snacks are mild, but the wasabi seaweed will give you a good kick and clear your sinuses.

 

That is after you finish a 0.35 oz pack all by yourself. But it isn’t just the slight saltiness or spiciness that makes the experience; it’s also the texture.

 

 

The Nutritional Benefits of Seaweed

Let’s talk about this superfood called seaweed—more specifically, seaweed by gimMe:

 

  • Certified organic
  • Certified gluten-free
  • Non-GMO
  • Contains omega 3
  • Source of iodine

 

This delicious snack works with Keto, Paleo, low carb, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets.

 

Additionally, seaweed contains small amounts of vitamins A, C, E, and K, along with folate, zinc, sodium, calcium, and magnesium.

 

Seaweed is also an excellent source of fiber, promoting gut health and gut bacteria, which plays an enormous role in your health. The fiber in seaweed may slow stomach emptying, too. This helps you feel fuller for longer and can delay hunger pangs resulting in anti-obesity effects.

 

Last but not least, seaweed may help reduce your blood cholesterol levels, which decreases the chances of heart disease.

 

Melt in Your Mouth Seaweed

Depending on which kind of seaweed you purchase, you’re going to experience different types of texture.

 

In the 0.34 oz and 0.16 oz packs (I call them snack packs), the seaweed feels like it melts in your mouth. It’s thin, salty, and crispy.

 

With the bigger sheets, the seaweed is less crispy and more like a thin piece of paper. However, the upside is you can get creative with it. I made sushi hand-rolls with quinoa, avocado, and mushrooms. This time, the seaweed was less crispy, so don’t expect a clean slice unless you pack it with sushi rice.

 

 

Eco-Friendly Packaging

 

To get the best bang for your buck, you want to pay attention to the description label and the description on Amazon. There are three different types of packages. There are:

 

  1. A six-pack, which is 0.16 oz (4.5 gm) each
  2. A single-pack that is 0.34 oz (10 gm) each
  3. A large pack of sheets at 0.92 oz (26 gm) each

 

However, the flipside to the whole experience is the packaging. I mean, there’s nothing too serious about it unless you’re an environmentally-conscious millennial who religiously avoids plastic. GimMe uses quite a bit of it in their packaging process.

 

Overall, I think this seaweed snack tastes delicious, and it makes a nutritious snack.
