1 apple

1/2 avocado

1 tsp dulse seaweed flakes

1 tablespoon maple syrup

Dulse is a seaweed that adds a healthy dose of iron (helping red blood cells carry oxygen to your body), potassium (balancing proper body fluid levels) and iodine (supports thyroid function).  Dulse  may be a new item for many of us in the US, but in Iceland it is a well-known snack in the northern coasts of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.  You can order dulse here.
