HOLY HEAT WAVE, I’m melting wicked-witch style here in Australia! 🔥

So when it comes to feeding and nourishing my insides on days like these, I opt for cooling, soothing foods like the one pictured – can you tell what it is? I’ll give you a hint – it’s a type of seaweed that:

— is high in calcium, niacin, B vitamins, iron, thiamine, magnesium, potassium and tryptophan

— helps soften hard tissues in the body

— tonifies blood and body fluids

— promotes healthy hair and skin

— remedies coughs and mucus build up

— is naturally salty to taste

Yes!! It’s wonderful WAKAME🙌🏻

Buy it dry and soak in water for 15-20 minutes before adding it to salads, soups, stews and stir frys. I like to crunch it into little pieces before soaking, because this stuff EXPANDS when it meets water + I like to eat it in small, manageable pieces 👌🏻

Here’s a fun recipe for you to try if you’re new to wakame…
