2. Arame

Arame is a brown sea plant with a mild, slightly sweet taste. Some food experts recommend trying this vegetable first. It usually comes in a dry, shredded form like wire. Once rehydrated, it doubles in size and is ready to toss into a salad. Go lightly — just 1.5 teaspoons can fulfill the daily dietary requirement for iodine.
