Sushi is one of my favorite foods to eat. My guess is that it is for you too. The rise of sushi restaurants across the world has risen almost 5x in just 10 years. According to reports by NHK, the number of Japanese restaurants in the world in 2006 was 24,000 but by 2017, they numbered over 89,000.
Sushi can be very healthy for you. It’s rich in good fats, antioxidants, low calories, and high protein.
Healthy and Fit Sushi Eating Tips
- Focus on ordering items that have been steamed or grilled. My favorite sushi choice is sashimi because it’s just the meat of the fish without any rice or extra ingredients.
- Incorporate veggie rolls into your sushi eating experience is a great option to get a daily dose of your veggies. Many sushi restaurants include vegetarian choices on the menu with ingredients like fresh cucumbers, avocados, and seaweed.
- Stay away from the crunchy rolls or deep fried rolls that give it a golden crust.
- Brown rice sushi instead of regular white rice is a great alternative.
- Try dishes with soba noodles, made from the whole grain buckwheat. Soba is a higher-fiber, higher-protein alternative to traditional white rice.
