Just because you’re eating sushi, does not make it healthy. There are often many misconceptions when it comes to devouring the Japanese cuisine. A few weekends ago we went out to Katsuya; naturally since it was a Saturday, I was having a cocktail, so I picked from the menu carefully. Here’s some of my sushi rules:

How to Eat Sushi- Healthy Style:

+ Start with edamames with no salt or a ginger dressed salad.

+ Miso soup is amazing: it aids in digestion, strengthens the immune system, & has tons of probiotics & B-Vitamins. Drink up!

+ Always use low-sodium soy sauce [ the green cap, not the red! ].

+ Wrap your rolls in cucumber or brown rice.

+ Eat tons of ginger. Benefits? It reduces inflammation, relieves stomach aches, & helps with headaches.

+ Drink light beer- if you’re a beer + sushi type [ my favs: Sapporo Light or Kirin Light ].

+ Tofu is fab: protein!

+ Sashimi is your friend- yellow tuna sashimi with wasabi is amazing!

+ Add jalapeños or wasabi to your rolls: spicy foods help fight cancer and they’re filling.

+ Order the banana tempura, but ask for it lightly fried.

Kampai!

    I haven’t had sushi in so long. I didn’t have it while I was pregnant (just had baby number 2) so I am due for a sushi date with the only person who will go with me – my sis!
