    Question Anyone know the foods richest in iodine?

    Primal Fuel
    I would like to experiment with naturally increasing my intake of iodine. Googling 'iodine rich foods' brings up eggs and milk as top. I KNOW that those can't be the best, because I hear a lot about the iodine in sea vegetables.

    Any opinions on the dried snacking seaweed you can find in asian grocery stores?
    There aren't many problems in life that can't be solved by sleeping it off, or adding more butter.

    Dulse is amazing. Dipped in olive oil, baked, stir fried... you name it, it is pretty dang amazing!

    My biggest problem is not overdoing it... there's a lotta iodine in a small amount of dulse, so you can't eat it like kale chips!

    Searching for the word iodine brought me to a passage that describes how nori, and red seaweed lack iodine. Good to know! Now to hunt down some brown seaweed in stores!

    And in case you missed the obvious, fish and seafood (from the ocean, not farmed). Things from the ocean have lots of iodine.

    I can't remember which thread it was, but someone mentioned Sea Seasonings, which is small flakes of sea vegetables. I think that would be a great help - add it instead of salt/pepper on top of eggs, veggies, steak...

    You can also get kelp granules that come in a shaker bottle. Package says 1/4 teaspoon of granules = 3 mg of iodine. I've been adding to my salad every day and hardly even notice they are there. I also got a few varieties of seaweed to try, but haven't experimented there yet.
