I thought I'd add my two cents about the seaweed---You can buy big bags of the packages at Korean grocery stores (Asian grocery stores with a Korean food section might also carry them). They are called "gim" and are really good--but high in sodium. Now I'm going to have to try plantains...they sound really good! Have any of you had trouble losing weight whilst eating parsnips (or any other root veggies?) Is it really just potatoes we should worry about? I'm new to the primal/paleo lifestyle but enjoying it already!

I love plantain chips - oven fried ! Some people add oil, but I don't really, I usualy just spray my baking sheet with Pam or some non stick spray, and slice the plantain super thin (make sure your plantain is VERY ripe!) and throw in the oven. So delicious!! I actually have two plantain that I'm going to make chips with today :)
Failure will never overtake you if your determination to succeed is strong enough...You have to want it more than you want air.
I just made eggplant chips in my dehydrator. sliced very thin and brushed with a little olive oil then set overnight at 105 degrees. pretty good, with a dip, not so good on there own.
There's nothing scarier than knowing exactly where you want to go in the world but having no idea how to get there...except maybe knowing where you want to go, knowing how to get there and having no idea who you are when you arrive. - Unknown
SPARKBIRDY I have to say I am torn now between collard or kale! I really like them both, but the collards are a bit less crumbly so I do like that. I am going to try chard next time and see it is a huge source of potassium and I need that!
We can get dulse here, a type of seaweed. It is naturally salty and a bit "fishy" but is a good source of iodine and works also as a flavour enhancer in fish dishes and salads. I like making beet and sweet potato chips, same recipe as for the plantain ones. Must try the kale.

I've stumbled onto dried seaweed. I buy little snack packs of it. A package contains several thin squares of it. It first it's crunchy, but then it melts in your mouth. It's a little salty and nutty. It reminds me of chips, but without all of the bad fats.
