Ever have a salt craving, especially for chips, BUT you're watching your calories/weight/amount of junk food consumed?
Try this tip next time around:
Bake 5-6 pieces (1-inch in size) of kelp on a cookie sheet at 300 degrees F for 3-5 minutes (watch them the whole time). As soon as slightly toasted, let cool 1-2 minutes, then pop in your mouth, fresh from the oven!
Seaweed is salty, so you should have your salt fix fixed! If you still crave chips after the kelp, chances are you were also craving fat as well as the salt. You could then get in a handful of seeds/nuts or an avocado (a healthy fat) or something entirely different instead (e.g., a fruit).
Cat says: FYI: if you tend to crave salt often, it may indicate that you have kidney/adrenal issues. I rarely crave salt (sweet is my vice!) but when this happened to me on a rare occasion one evening, I came up with this trick instead. This usually hits the spot for me, and I've never been able to eat more than 5-6 pieces. One time, I still went out and bought chips after eating the kelp. The good news? Because I was quite saturated with salt already, I didn't eat that many chips after all (they just tasted too salty!). You may find that you have the same experience too. Try and see!
