Eat This: Sassy Sesame and Seaweed Salad

The wealth of vitamins, minerals and protein in this dish will help you feel satisfied throughout the day. Sesame seeds are rich in copper, magnesium, calcium, manganese and other nutrients, while just a gram of seaweed can fulfill your iodine needs for the day. Seaweed is also high in calcium and offers almost as much protein per serving as legumes such as lentils or soybeans.

Furthermore, the compound fucoxanthin found in seaweed may help reduce body fat. According to a 2010 study published in Biotechnology Journal, mice that ate a diet with fucoxanthin for six weeks had higher good cholesterol and higher excretion of triglycerides and bad cholesterol. This indicated that the compound discouraged the absorption of fats from the diet.

Along with miso soup or sashimi, this salad can be part a simple and light lunch. It must marinate for half an hour, so prepare it before you start your work out. Once you're done, it will be ready to eat.
