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!
