A Love Letter To Nori

A Love Letter To Nori

Nori, how could we have been so blind? We thought we KNEW you. We thought you were not to be looked at outside of Nobu! We thought you were the property of Master Sushi Chef’s and Marcobiotic wunderkinds, and not to be looked at by naive, klutzy cooks. We didn’t realize you were ours to experiment with at our very own home – to stuff with everything from figs to Indian food. Imagine our surprise when you breezed into our life with the lackadaisical air of a whole wheat tortilla. We didn’t know you could look this way. We didn’t know you’d make us feel these things!

If we’d known that stuffing you with anything from leftovers to grains (particularly quinoa), beans (especially lentils, chick peas, and lima’s), salads (particularly those highly concentrated with numerous ingredients), avocado, fruit (yes, fruit – especially shredded long and thin in the Cuisinart), and well-pounced upon nuts would be the world most delicious, nutritious, and low-fat meal – we would have been buying you in bulk so long ago. If we’d have known that your skinny body rolled with a naughty line of even the most average bland salad and a bit of salad dressing or Braggs Amino Acids would feel like such a sinful indulgence – we would have been lining our cabinets with back up Nori packs years ago! We feel so wronged! How could someone have not told us!

We love this brand:

Oh, Nori. You are expensive, hard to find organic and raw (though we are just as attracted to you when you are toasted) and we go through you like water. At $20 for 50 sheets, you are too hard to resist when we know you are sitting just minutes away in our fridge. We just can’t stop seeing you now. Our affair has just begun; and its one of the hottest, more delicious we’ve ever had.

We’ve couldn’t help but swoon when The WHF Foundation said;

“Why would anyone want to eat sea vegetables? Because they offer the broadest range of minerals of any food, containing virtually all the minerals found in the ocean-the same minerals that are found in human blood. Sea vegetables are an excellent source of iodine and vitamin K, a very good source of the B-vitamin folate, and magnesium, and a good source of iron and calcium, and the B-vitamins riboflavin and pantothenic acid. In addition, sea vegetables contain good amounts of lignans, plant compounds with cancer-protective properties.”

They also said you help promote healthy thyroid function, prevent birth defects and cardiovascular disease, provide Relief for Menopausal Symptoms, and have wonderful anti-inflammatory properties. If we weren’t a little jaded in the language of love, we’d say you may just be the perfect food for us. A few more Months like this, and who knows where we may be.

We also know we can’t share you. We have learned the err of our ways trying to keep you to ourselves; you are the Every woman’s Sea Vegetable, and to be enjoyed pell mell by all, with reckless abandon! Though we may ask how it was. So, what do you do with Nori when your front door locks are clicked firmly into place?
