There is absolutely no denying that for a lot of people, sushi is something that happens to be an acquired taste. Keeping that in mind, you will find people who either love sushi, or who absolutely hate it. There is nothing wrong with that as not everyone can eat fish – raw or uncooked. However, the one debate that has been going on for as long as anyone can remember is whether sushi healthy or not.
Now this all comes down to how much sushi you consume, how you choose your sushi, and whether the restaurant is serving fresh raw fish or not. Because the fresher the fish is, the healthier it is going to be. Keeping that in mind, there are several ways through which one can make sure that the sushi they want to eat is as healthy as possible. This way, at least you will be at peace knowing that your sushi consumption is not going to cause you any harm.
Now that we have everything out of the way, we can go ahead and have a look at how you can make sure your sushi consumption is as healthy as it can get. Let’s begin.
Make Sure You Select The Right Roll
One of the most important determinants that decide whether or not the sushi is healthy are the ingredients you choose in the roll – this applies to both the ingredients that are inside the sushi, as well as on top; as long as these ingredients are good, and healthy for you, the sushi is not going to have any negative impact on you. Fish is also a great thing, but I would suggest you should also go for steamed and fresh vegetables because you get a lot of fiber.
Don’t Opt For a Lot of Sauces
Obviously you will be getting your sushi with a variety of sauces with soy sauce being the main one; the health experts suggest that the less amount of sauces you have, the better; because these sauces are the primary source for sodium, as well as fat. So, it is best if you just avoid them altogether.
Make Sure That The Fish is Fresh And Has Quality
Fish being the main ingredient in any sushi roll plays a vital role in being healthy or not; many restaurants sell cheaper, low quality fish by marketing them as more expensive variants. If you are really craving sushi, I would suggest you go to a place that serves quality fish, and does it freshly. Sure, you are most likely to pay a higher amount of money, but the good thing is that you will be a lot safer when it comes to fresh fish. I am saying this because I have seen a lot of people get sick just because the sushi they ordered was made out of fish that was not fresh, and was obtained from cheaper resources as well. So, if you do care about your health, make sure you avoid that.
