Healthy Sushi Night

11/8/2016

We all crave that sushi dinner, however, although sushi is predominantly seafood (healthy protein filled with omega-3) this cuisine is also loaded with mayo, fried seafood and crumbs, and rice which can become a high calorie meal. So what should you order when you are trying to maintain or lose weight? Check out this simple list for a healthy sushi dinner. 

 

Avoid the tempura : Avoid the fried and coated shrimp (or even veggie) tempura. Edamame is a healthy appetizer option; however, remember to control the amount.

Choose the simple rolls: Choose simple maki rolls with seafood such as shrimp, tuna, and salmon and avocado. Avoid the rolls filled with extras such as spicy mayo, fried toppings.  Choose about 8-10 pieces.

Low calorie sides: if you don’t fill up from your rolls, try not to eat high calorie side dishes filled with mayo. Choose extra sashimi options which will fill you up with protein, a mayo-free crab salad, or a seaweed or spinach salad loaded with nutrients and low in calories.

 

Remember to drink lots of water to hydrate from the salt!
