Has anyone noticed increased weight loss because of seaweed consumption?

Only in sushi. I swear I've developed some sort of an intolerance to it because for the last few years every time I've had sushi... I get severe gastro-intestinal issues. I've experimented (mostly because I love sushi) and have ruled out everything in it; the rice by itself doesn't bother me, the "contents" (fish, shrimp, crab, avocado, sweet potato, etc.) don't bother me... the only thing left is the seaweed. I can't be completely certain of this because I haven't been brave enough to eat seaweed by itself and find out.

I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.

Yes, it is yummy.

The journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Let go and let God.

Yep! I can buy little packages of ten tiny sushi nori sheets. I use them as a potato chip substitute. Crispy, salty, and pre-portioned!

I've boiled kombu and other types in rice.
I've shredded nori over my meals
I've eaten the dried versions (nori, dulse, etc.) as a snack

Dried seaweed (dulse) is a fairly common (and delicious!) snack in my house - my husband cringes, but that just means more for me!

I looove seasoned, dry seaweed (nori)... either just plain as a snack or in sushi. But my mom also makes this tofu soup with seaweed in it (not the same as miso soup) that I enjoy a lot. I don't go out of my way to buy and cook it myself, but I might order something containing it at a restaurant.

When I make miso soup I use arame or wakame seaweed. It's actually a very easy, packable lunch. In a plastic container put the rehydrated seaweed, some sesame seeds, tofu cubes, sliced shiitakes, shredded greens, a blob of miso paste and a dash of soy sauce. Stick it in the fridge at work, and then at lunch dump it into a bowl and add hot water. Give it a stir and you've got lunch!

I love seaweed. I make my own Dashi with Kombu (Japanese people think that's funny - because they buy instant Dashi, which is ubiquitous in Japanese cooking).
The seaweed snacks sold at Trader Joe's are really tasty. Also, somewhat inexpensive. You can buy the same stuff on amazon.com if you can't find it locally.

You should get the toasted sheets. Cool some vinegar seasoned rice and then roll into a sheet. Or just top some miso soup with it. I sometimes eat them plain.

In sushi, yes - love it! I also have a sushi salad - which is sort of an americanized version of sushi - brown rice, edamame, grape/cherry tomatoes, shredded carrot, sesame seeds, and shredded seaweed with a yummy soy/ginger vinaigrette. So colourful and healthy!

Sure, I've had nori (sushi wrap) and seaweed in various Japanese dishes.

I can't say that I have ever cooked with it, though I bet it would be good tossed into a soup.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

Yes, but only a couple of times. My YD and her BF made us some rice and seaweed roll-ups (sushi) and they were pretty good. However, I did not realize the power of wasabi paste and overdid that the first couple.

The other time was when I bought some paper thin dried seaweed from Trader Joe's. They were good.

We often buy packets of seaweed to eat at snacks. We used to only find them at the Korean supermarket called H Mart (could be one near you, it's a chain) but we recently found seaweed at Costco. I just eat it straight from the packet.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

The flat sheets you roll sushi with - yep. Good in sushi. Also you can get that same kind, cut up into little shreds, that you would put on top of your rice or whatever to add flavour.

Wakame seaweed is very fun. It starts off as tiny black bits, but when you soak it in water it expands.. and expands.. and expands... and it is rather tasty, I have a nice recipe for tuna, tomato and wakame with soy/lemon dressing, which is low fat high protein and (to me) very delicious.

Any seaweed adventures I've ever had, have been within the context of "Japanese cuisine." So if you are interested in cooking with seaweed, you might find some inspiration or recipes in Japanese cookbooks.

I often pass the seaweed section of my local natural food store but have not yet made a purchase. Have you ever eaten seaweed? How was it prepared? Did you like it? Is it a regular part of your diet?
