KOREAN SEAWEED SOUP

We know for some this soup may look a little scary like taking a big ol' ladle of the sea and pouring it into a bowl.  But not only is it delicious but so nutritious so we really would like to share this recipe with you.

Not only does seaweed make a tasty soup, it's also super healthy for you! Its a great source of calcium, iodine, fibre, omega acids, vitamin B1 & B3, and low in calories! It has also been linked to metabolism regulation, blood purification, constipation relief, detoxification, anti-carcinogen, and anti-aging. On top of all this, lots of women rely on seaweed soup after giving birth to replace all the vitamins and minerals they've lost.

Here is a video on how we made the Korean Seaweed Soup!  And the website with the method and recipe.

We really enjoy our seaweed soup with some brown rice.  Simply drop a bowl of brown rice into the soup and stir!

We also substituted the cubed beef with ground beef and the soy sauce with Braggs.

EGG FRIED RICE WITH CHINESE GREENS

Fried rice is always better with rice that left in the fridge over night to dry out.  We used left over rice from the "Korean Sprout Rice" from the day before.

 We opted to omit the peas and substituted the vegetable oil with a healthier coconut oil.  

And for the greens any greens vegetable like the broccoli would be delicious.
