What are sea veggies anyway?

My first thought that came to mind was, why seaweed of course! Truth be told I know there is so much more out there about sea veggies that I have no knowledge of. So I did a quick search and came up with some interesting info from Dr. Weil. Go here if you would like to know more about sea veggies. I hope you find this article to be as informative as I have.
The information I found most exciting is the recipe Dr. Weill posted called a DLT sandwich, the vegan alternative to the BLT. The idea is to replace the bacon with dulse that is quickly sauteed in olive oil. I've been a vegetarian for at least 17 years & I do miss my BLT's, though not how I felt after I ate them! So I will definitely be willing to try this.
Besides according to the good DR, seaweed is packed with vitamins A, C, E, B complex and B12, calcium, potassium and iron. Sounds like a no brainer to me.

Have any of you tried sea veggies before? What have your experiences been like?

Speaking of the sea and all of its veggies. Here is a photo of the road I travel on when I go to the beach. Notice how different the terrain is around the ocean. Pretty cool huh?
