Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - SHOPPING -

Why the health halo? Well­ness blog­gers can of­ten make sea­weed sound like the best thing since sliced bread, from im­prov­ing your gut health through to giv­ing a boost to your im­mu­nity and me­tab­o­lism.

Is the hype jus­ti­fied? No. One sheet of nori sea­weed (the type you use to wrap sushi) has around 7 per cent of your daily iodine. So you’d have to eat a lot of sushi rolls if you tried to meet your daily tar­get with nori!

WIN­NER: EGGS A hard-boiled egg has more iodine than a sheet of sea­weed, and is a source of sat­is­fy­ing protein. En­joy eggs whole, as a snack or cut in half, and sprin­kle with chilli fl akes or dukkah.
