Kelp noodles are one of many raw substitute for pasta. Many people choose it because it´s low in calories.
But there are many reasons why kelp should be included in your diet. Espacially if you are vegitarian, vegan or raw vegan. It´s high in nutrients, iodine and contains over 70 minerals, potassium, calcium, iron and amino acids.
If you hold a strict no animal protein diet you don´t eat the following:
So you need to add either kelp or other seaweeds such as dulse, nori or kombu. One of the major reasons is your thyroid functions.
If your thyroid isn´t functioning the symtoms will effect your metabolism.
You will feel tiered, frozen, your body will be low on energy, dry skin, lifeless/brittel hair and you might become overwieght as a result.
Recognise any of these symtoms and add either the animal protein list to your diet or more seavegetables.
Kelp is really good if you don´t like the taste of seaweeds. It has no flavor at all and alot of crunch! Pasta al dente is totally possible if you use this little noodle.
So even though it´s called noodles you can just as well make an italian flavored pasta sauce or ad meat, fish or chicken. And if you´r gluten intolerant this will be a great substitute for pasta.
I love mine with hot chili, tamari, mashed up avocados, koriander, lemon juice and vegetables.
