Are you a sushi fan?
Think about sushi and what it is: Fish and Raw Veggies: a great combination that is healthy and clean! But there is more to your sushi. Ingredients like the batter, rice, and sauces can tip the scale to not as healthy.

- Vegan Sushi
The fact is that sushi rice is vegan (rice, rice vinegar, salt, sugar, kombu seaweed, and sometimes sweet rice wine). You select vegetarian/vegan toppings for your sushi, which makes this much cheaper this way also.
When you eat nigiri, dip the fish side, but not the rice, into the soy sauce to avoid overloading it with that sodium soy sauce has within it.
Believe it or not, most sushi rice has white sugar mixed in! To avoid this, go for the brown rice or order “naruto style,” which is cucumber wrapped.
Sushi is easily digestible and has health benefits that include reducing high cholesterol levels, the risk of heart disease and overall inflammation, and lowering blood pressure, triglycerides, and maintaining heart rhythm.
