Seaweed - Sunday Times Style Magazine

seaweed and algae shake Let’s eat seaweed - Times Online

Here we go again with the Seaweed and Algae shake thing - Sunday Times Style magazine recommend 2 options - make your own laverbread or buy a pro greens seaweed and algae shake from Foods for Life as recommended by Nutritionist London , Yvonne Bishop-Weston.

Peta Bee from The Sunday Times Style magazine says "It's green, slimy, and currently the food favoured by those on a mission to be slender. With Victoria Beckham reportedly encouraging her fellow Spice Girls to knock back a seaweed-based shake each morning, to help them get into shape for their forthcoming tour, and with “macrobiotic” dieters such as Madonna and Cindy Crawford consuming it by the bucketful, the sea vegetable has become inextricably linked with svelteness in celebrity circles. But even scientists agree that it could be more than the latest fad.

Japanese researchers recently identified seaweed as an unlikely weapon in the war against obesity. They found that rats given fucoxanthin – a pigment in brown kelp – lost up to 10% of their body weight, mainly from around their midriffs."

Fortunately for you (for those of you with no time to make laverbread or who think it tastes yucky) our selection of Seaweed and Algae shakes are not £50 a month they work out at £36 per month and they don't taste slimy.

You could also try seaweed condiments from a company called Seagreens - just sprinkle it on your food like salt and pepper about 35 per pack lasts ages.
