30 Bananas a Day!

I've heard a lot about these "noodles" made entirely of kelp.

I haven't seen any discussions about them though, and I was wondering what people thought about them.
Are they a good source of sodium? are they a good food for transitioning?

Maybe for transitioning, but they aren't a food. Have you tried making zucchini pasta? That would be a much better option..
thank you for the response! I'll have to try them once, at least :)
I'm still transitioning and I really miss the textures of some cooked foods. Maybe this will help.
or cucumber noodles
Anybody know about eating kelp itself? I used to live by the ocean and enjoyed eating seaweed every now and then, but haven't in a while. I imagine the high salt content isn't great...
I've nibbled on kelp here and there while surfing. It's okay, nothing like a good lettuce. Plus, the ocean is pretty polluted at this point...
Good point. The seaweed might have a few extra "nutrients" in it these days. I saw one study that found high levels of arsenic in 8 of 9 off-the-shelf kelp powder supplements. If that don't make you a land lover...
I bought a small bag of kelp noodles a couple years ago and I only bought it once because it didn't taste very good and I didn't even finish half of it. (It was like eating a combination of rubber, salt, and water. )

Zuchinni pasta however is so good that I literally ate a HUGE container of it every single day for almost a year straight. (When people saw the container that I put it in they would say, "There is no way that someone your size is going to eat all that your self.") If you haven't tried zuchinni pasta yet please do so...

I've read that you have to soak them before eating in lemon juice and water, or in a sauce.
I do intend to get a spiralizer though, as soon as I can afford one :)
same. plus they're so expensive! $10AUD a packet. ridiculous!!
Plus they're so expensive!

If a person can afford kelp noodles I would think that they could afford a spirilizer as well.

Plus zuchinni is so inexpensive!

Also keep in mind that like real spaghetti noodles, kelp noodles don't have a whole lot of flavor to them and by themself taste like nothing. It's the texture of spaghetti and the sauce that is added to it that people enjoy.

* Kelp Noodles
* Zuchinni Noodles
* Spaghetti Noodles

Sure, all 3 of these types of noodles will give you the same texture, but of these 3 I think that Zuchinni Noodles that you spirilize yourself will be the only "raw" and healthy option.
I love to eat zucchini(sorry to say the spelling above is incorrect :)) "pasta" except that zucchini is more expensive ($4+/kg) than kelp/seaweed here in Asia.
