How to Eat Seaweed Without Putting It in Miso Soup

As I mentioned in the video Japanese Blue Zones’ Diet, seaweed is one thing eaten a lot in Japanese Blue Zones.


According to David Sinclair, sirtuin 6 is one of the keys to extending your lifespan. Apparently, the first sirtuin 6 activator is now on the market, and the ingredients of this supplement are seaweeds.

As I said before I am not a big fan of supplements and I believe it is better to absorb nutrients directly from food, and if seaweeds have anything to do with sirtuin, why not eating seaweeds on a regular basis.

Three Reasons Why I Don’t Take Supplements like NMN or Resveratrol

We eat a lot of seaweeds in Japan because we put them in miso soup and we have miso soup almost every day. However, in your case, you may not consume miso soup on a regular basis. In that case, how can you have seaweed in your diet?

One thing you can do is to make Sunomono with Wakame.

You can also put seaweed in a salad. You can put Wakame in a salad, and you can put Hijiki in a salad.

Today, I made a salad with Hijiki, cabbage, lettuce, cucumbers, and carrots.

It was delicious.
