Many people are trying to eat healthier. From people adopting a raw-food diet to cutting carbs, there are a variety of diets that people adopt in order to eat “better.”
If you are looking to eat in a way that is healthier for your body and mind, it’s time to give sushi a try. Sushi has become more mainstream than ever before, making it easy to find. Whether you are dining at an amazing sushi restaurant or picking up a package at your local grocery store, adding sushi to your diet is simple.
The key to eating healthy sushi is to know how your roll is prepared. Like any other type of food, there are ways to diminish the health benefits of the meal. The best advice, given by experts, is to keep your sushi heavy on the seafood and low on the condiments.
For example, shrimp tempura rolls are often drizzled with spicy mayonnaise. That drizzle can pack on 500 calories and additional fat. It’s double the amount of calories you would consume if you chose a California roll. Soy sauce can also be a culprit, adding sodium to your roll in amounts that wouldn’t be considered healthy.
Some of the best choices are salmon and tuna. Both are low in calories and have excellent amounts of omega-3s. Wasabi can add flavor and spice without adding an overabundance of calories. Some suggest looking for sushi that is less “fancy” than others. Skip anything fried and choose steamed, grilled or raw instead. You can also choose from the many vegetarian options available to really keep the calories down.

I like that tip to have fewer condiments on your sushi. Many condiments are heavy on the calories. Fish on the other hand are a good source of protein and good fats.
