Be Well caught up with Seamus Mullen to talk food, fitness, and why he loathes the term guilty pleasures.
When you were a kid, you were likely told to ‘eat your greens.’ Fast-forward a few decades and all of us in the sustainable wellness community are echoing – and amplifying – that parental sentiment. The difference between then and now is that today more people are embracing diets rich in nutrition-packed plants, enjoying more access to fresh, whole, greens. They now understand that the phytonutrients found in greens play an essential role in helping to support healthier lives, less burdened by disease and chronic illness. And while we’re all pretty familiar with the classic greens like spinach and kale, one of the more recent additions to the healthy greens list is seaweed, an ocean-grown veggie that’s worth getting to know better.
Seaweed (also known as sea veggies) might seem like a strange thing to incorporate into your meals, but these plants are some of the most nutrient dense on the planet, containing an abundance of essential minerals that can support your health in a variety of ways. Coming from the ocean, these plants are exposed to all the nutrients that exist there, and can bring all of these healing properties right to your plate.
