Palmaria palmata, better known as dulse, is a sea vegetable that grows on the northern coasts of Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
A 1/3 cup serving of dulse has only 18 calories. This is a heart-healthy food as it has no saturated fat and no cholesterol. With 2 g of fiber, this food is surprisingly filling.
It has a salty taste so you can add it to anything in place of regular salt.
Dr. Sal’s Thoughts:
A very nutrient-rich low calorie addition to just about anything. Great source of B vitamins and iron. I use it in place of salt almost exclusively adding it to a lot of my raw recipes and it is a main component of my Home Made, All Natural Sport’s Drink. For lunch sometimes a snack on romaine lettuce and cucumbers sprinkled with dulse. You can buy dulse at many health food stores either in sheets or flakes but I usually by my dulse flakes in bulk through Amazon.
