Nori Salad Wrap

IMG_0219

For lunch, I don’t like to spend that much time in the kitchen. I want a quick, nutritious meal with little effort. This usually means one of three things: I’ll either take an avocado, slice it in half, season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder and scoop out the insides with a spoon while I rush out the door; throw whatever veggies I have on hand into a plastic tub of pre-washed green leaves; or take a nori sheet, tortilla wrap, or collard green leaf and wrap it around avocado and veggies and dip into a soy sauce or tahini sauce. This recipe takes nori and basically uses it to enclose a salad.

Nori: provides vitamins A, B1, B2, B12, and E, contains more vitamin C than orange, is a great alternative to fish and meat in a vegan diet, is a great source of iodine, stimulates the thyroid to increase metabolism, is a weight loss agent, contributes to healthier nails, teeth, skin, and hair, and treats goiter, radiation sickness, and fibrocystic illnesses.

    GENIUS! I’ve always make sushi. But when I’m out of meat, I can never really do much with the leftover nori sheets. Thank you. :)
