Yesterday's Lunch and Sushi Guide...

Yesterday's lunch was sushi. I had two rolls: salmon roll and vegetable roll. The vegetable roll consisted of cucumber, asparagus and avocado. I asked that both my rolls be made with brown rice. Ah, this was both delicious and filling.

Sushi is always a great option to have for lunch or dinner. When ordered the right way, can also be very nutritious and healthy. Here is a brief guide to ordering sushi the healthy way!

  • Ask to swap out the white rice for brown or go light on the rice
  • Avoid any rolls that have mayo in them
  • Avoid anything that says tempura, as this is fried
  • If you are ordering more than one roll, make one veggie and one protein based
  • Watch the soy sauce -high levels of sodium will bloat you up
  • Start your meal off with a light option such as miso soup, salad or edamame
  • Don't order rolls that have names of things your scared of, such as "dynamite" or "spider"

So, now you should be prepared to go out and order a healthy meal!

Any questions?
