Healthy Eating Tip: Make Nori Wraps Like Alicia Silverstone

The Kind Diet book by Alicia Silverstone doesn't hit stores until Fall, but you don't have to wait until then to get a taste of her vegan tips. A common qualm about veganism is that meals are time-consuming, but this famous vegan implied that doesn't have to be true and said, "One of the recipes in my book is leftover nori (a type of seaweed) wraps. Anything in the fridge I want to use up, I shove into nori. It's delicious."

Alicia sells the perks of seaweed by saying, "It makes your skin look amazing and your hair really strong," but the benefits of including seaweed in your diet are more than skin-deep. The sea vegetable is an excellent source of essential minerals like iodine, vitamin K, B-vitamins, magnesium, iron, and calcium.

You can usually find packages of nori in the Asian food section of your supermarket. It comes in thin sheets, making it ideal for wrapping, and Alicia has shown us that it's not just for wrapping raw fish.

Well I am no VEGAN but I certainly do exactly what she does with NORI! I love wrapping it around ANYTHING and everything!!! :)

"It makes your skin look amazing." So why her skin looks so bad? :? I agree with Anonymous number 3. She looks horrible. She doesn't look so bad here, but you can find a lot of bad pics. She REALLY doesn't look so good. And I don't think people should eat meat (I am a vegetarian). Anonymous # 19 (Non ignorant, glowing vegan), I agree with you when you say: "when the truth is told, it's always taken as rude." That's why you think those comments are rude, right? You can't face the truth! :rotfl:

Anonymous commenter, please don't come here and throw flames. I understand that you are passionate about the vegan lifestyle, but that gives you no excuse to be so rude.

I would be interested in reading this book. I'm not a vegetarian but since I've been living in the uk I've pretty much stopped eating meat (good meat is a luxury here) so I've been looking for more vegetable-based recipes.

I certainly wouldn't say that Alicia is fat, but I've never found her to be a compelling spokeswoman for a vegan diet. Her hair and complexion always looks very gray and dull to me and she isn't terribly fit. That's not to say that the diet isn't really healthy, but at least in her case, those health benefits don't seem to have extended to her appearance.

Sounds yummy! :feed me: I had some a long time ago but am willing to experiment some more. The only time I had iodine poisoning was one time when I was on the coast & ate so much seafood that I was up sick all night. I had seafood for breakfast, lunch, & dinner the day before. Take this advice & DON'T do that! hehehe I don't think a person would enough nori to get iodine poisoning, but then again some people will try too much of anything ( I did with seafood!).

Mhmm, I had a cucumber roll for dinner tonight Love Nori!

Anonymous - Alicia S didn't say her skin looked good because of iodine, Fit followed up her claims by adding what additional minerals nori has in it. Hope that clarifies it for you.

It's funny I was just thinking of seaweed today.

I ate them for snack when I was in college. Hmm. Might try making sushi now.

some people could get ionide poisoning from that. i know i can eat as much noir as i want as i have high tolerance for ionide, but some people have really low and it does have a warning on the packaging not to eat too much of it.

@ anonymous - i didn't realize you had the ability to assess health by looking at someone's picture! wow what a skill it's SHOCKING that you have the time to comment on this blog with all the people that must be e-mailing you day in and day out asking for your opinion. for what it's worth, i think she looks great.

This is an intriguing alternative to tortilla wraps. It doesn't exactly look delicious, but probably is, and I'll be trying it anyhow.

LOL... did she start graduate school or something. Yep, that first semester will leave anyone looking like a zombie.

Kia, that sounds really really good. I wish we could find Nori here, but I am in a very rural, non-diverse area. Maybe I will have to take a look on one of my vacations! :)

I heart brown rice and almond butter wrapped in nori with a little soy sauce. One of my fave backpacking meal treats.
