Kombu Egg Soup

KombuSoupJust when you think you’ve had every type of soup out there, something new comes along. Like this recipe for Kombu Egg Soup sent in by Aaron Blaisdell for the Primal Cookbook Challenge.

As Aaron so rightly reminded us, “sea vegetables are often an overlooked component of our ancestral diet, even among us primal types.”

Kombu Egg Soup is incredibly nourishing and while the flavor of sea vegetables might be an acquired taste, in this soup you’ll find it to be fairly mild. But what are sea vegetables, exactly? We’ve featured this food group (otherwise known as algae) as Smart Fuel before, but the quick version is this: sea vegetables are in most cases some version of seaweed, whether it be nori (the dried seaweed that sushi is wrapped in) or something like kombu.

It’s 2010! Let’s get this year, nay, this decade off on the right foot. This will be the decade that you hone in on what makes your body tick. This will be the decade when you develop a lifelong strategy of health and wellness that works for you. This will be the decade when your smart choices about how you move, what you eat and what you think manifest themselves in a strong, lean and healthy body that would make Grok proud.

Believe it, commit to it and act on it.
