Sea Spaghetti, also known as Himanthalia Elongata, is a seaweed grown in the Atlantic coast of Ireland. It looks like spaghetti right out of the water. When soaked in water, sea spaghetti fully saturates and expands in size. In a 5 gram serving, sea spaghetti contains dietary fiber (5%), vitamin C (400%), potassium (40%), magnesium (29%), calcium (25%) and iodine (56%). It is so far the most nutritious raw pasta replacement. Eating sea spaghetti often is a great way to ensure an alkalising, and mineralising diet.
You can eat it with a simple dressing of olive oil & vinegar, drown it in a tomato pasta sauce; or it can be eaten like normal spaghetti - just boiled for 10 - 15 mins and added to pasta or chopped up within a salad. The ways are endless but it's always a nurturing and fulfilling meal.
