Seamoss, Sailing And Track Nights…
EAT: Sea moss….?! Yes, you read that correctly, influencers and wellness fanatics are hyping up sea moss as the ’superfood’ of 2023. The spiky, frilly sea vegetable somewhat resembles frisée lettuce (when it’s in the er… sea) and it’s a member of the algae family. Sea moss is packed with nutrients like folate, vitamin K, vitamin B, iron, iodine, magnesium, zinc and calcium. The plant can be eaten raw and in supplement form (think pills, powders and gummies), but it’s most often consumed as a gel, made by soaking the dried plant in water, blending it and letting it ‘brew’ in the fridge. In 2020, Kim Kardashian shared on Twitter that she drank sea moss smoothies as part of her diet and last summer, Erewhon Market, (a super healthy and extraordinarily priced LA based grocery chain), released the ‘Hailey Bieber’s Strawberry Glaze Skin Smoothie’ – complete with sea moss gel.
