Lately, I’ve been trying to find different gluten free/grain free
ways to make POWER-ROLLS;

Then I came across,
NORI (Seaweed) WRAPS!!

FACTS about NORI:

Nori is a red seaweed from the genus Porphyra that is commonly used in the making of sushi.

Nutritional Content:

Nori contains between 30 and 50 percent protein
and is fairly low in sodium because most of the salt is washed away during processing.
It is a good source of vitamin A, folate and niacin.
Fresh nori is a good source of vitamin C, but the shelf life for this nutrient after processing is fairly short.

A 2007 Venezuelan study published in the “Journal of Nutrition” stated that nori is a valuable source of iron for people eating rice-based meals and that,
unlike many grains and beans, it does not contain phytates, which can bind with other nutrients and slow down their absorption

Basically, I’m obsessed with using these to make
POWER-ROLLS
of all different varieties!
