How Healthy is Sushi?
Sushi is low in calories for they have minimal fat. Consider raw fish, veggies and rice. It’s the fresh fish that provides the healthy omega 3 fatty acids, in particular salmon and tuna. They lower cholesterol improving cardiovascular health and reducing risk of cancer. Sushi is also protein-loaded, and depending on the seafood, low in harmful saturated fats. You can also obtain calcium and vitamin D in typical sushi dishes.
And the nori – the seaweed that wraps around sushi rolls – have their share of vitamins A, B6 and C, as well as protein that helps reduce blood pressure. Choose rolls with vegetables, like avocado, rich in unsaturated fats. Dip in wasabi for your antioxidant and your pickled ginger, an antimicrobial.
If you wish, brown rice is a healthier option than white rice, and if you avoid frying your rolls and using a lot of soy sauce, your sushi roll is really a mouthful of healthy goodness.
