Kelp noodles are a food made from kelp, an edible brown seaweed that contains high amounts of iodine. Kelp noodles are made with sea vegetables and require no cooking. They can be purchased in Whole Foods or online.
Kelp offers a wide range of health benefits, partly due to their iodine content. For instance, kelp noodles are said to improve thyroid health, promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and enhance heart health. The actual kelp plant contains more than 70 minerals, including potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium and iodine. It contains more than 21 amino acids, plus enzymes, vitamins and trace elements.
Voila! Enjoy 🙂
