Sushi is a wonderful way of creating healthy food from Japanese cuisine. The world sushi actually means cooked vinegared rice. Most people tend to think that sushi is just raw fish when in fact the translation is from sushi-meshi – cooked vinegared rice. 

Sushi is a amazing combination  of rice with raw vegetables, fish or cooked meat. Normally the rice is the base of each serving and can be shaped holding together the food. Normally sushi is rolled with Japanese Seaweed paper ‘Nori’ . Nori paper, is made of shredded seaweed it holds about 1/3 protein and 1/3 dietary fibre, also Nori contains high levels of the Vitamin A, vitamin C and contains no fat content.

Eating sushi can help you reduce your calorie intake whilst increasing your nutrients. Most sushi dishes use raw foods, eating raw food can be the best way of making sure none of the nutrients are lost in the cooking process. It’s great for losing weight also high in Omega 3 which can help lower cholesterol.
