Disappointed with Kirkland Seaweed

Kirkland Sea Weed 1

In an effort to get more iodine in my diet to help with my thyroid health as well as to enjoy a savory snack, I’ve been eating these Kirkland Brand seaweed packets at a rate of about 2 a day.

I never really thought too much about what went into these since I really enjoyed how it tasted… I just figured it was pretty straight forward sea weed… and salt.  What else could there possibly be.

I never bothered to look at the ingredient list until a family member pointed it out to me.

Turns out there is a good amount of corn oil and grape seed oil, both of which are no-nos, if I’m trying to maintain a good diet.

I only have a few packets left that I think I’ll just finish (after all.. they do taste good!), but I won’t buy these in the future.

Kirkland Sea Weed 2Its ok, because I’ve just discovered how much I like salted macadamia nuts, and as long as I continue to divy them up into to-go packets (so I don’t over eat the), I have a good source of fats to snack on.

    I use Main Coast Sea Vegetables Organic Kelp Grandules Salt Alternative. It comes in a shaker and it’s a great way to add all of the nutrition of kelp (and the needed iodine) into meals. I also eat a lot of salads and make my own dressing with olive oil/red wine vinegar/herbs/and this kelp. I buy California Olive Ranch Extra Virgin Olice Oil after reading the UC Davis study that said 69% of imported olive oil has other bad oils in it.
