3 Day Refresh Recipes
Carrot Seaweed Medley
Okay, brave people…this is one of the more interesting 3 Day Refresh recipes. Are you ready for some Carrot Seaweed Medley?
First, did you know seaweed is considered a superfood? Yep. As a member of the algae family, it is loaded with good stuff. Here are some of the health benefits of seaweed:
- Packed with antioxidants.
- Purifies and alkalizes blood.
- Excellent source of calcium (10x as much as milk!) and Vitamins A and C
- High in iodine, which helps your thyroid (a sick thyroid can cause fatigue, depression, muscle weakness, difficulty losing weight, high cholesterol, heart palpitations, and forgetfulness).
- Purported to help regulate estrogen and estradiol, which has the wonderful side effects of curbing PMS [yay!] and reducing the risk of breast cancer [YAY!].
- High levels of chlorophyll detoxify the body.
- Assists with weight loss.
