Healthy, fresh and convenient, Gourmet Sushi provides effortless and delicious nourishment for your body. The Japanese delicacy consists of rice, seasoned with vinegar and is most commonly combined with fresh fish and/or vegetables. Despite its simplicity, the cuisine is extremely refined and varied.
Low in saturated fats and sugars, sushi can provide a wholesome, balanced meal with a number of health benefits. Oily fish such as salmon and tuna are excellent sources of protein, selenium and Omega 3 fatty acids, which are essential for the good function of the brain and cardiovascular system. In addition, research has shown omega 3 can help improve mood and memory. Fresh vegetables such as cucumber and avocado contain a variety of essential minerals and vitamins. The seaweed nori is high in iodine which helps to regulate metabolism. Finally, accompanying ingredients such as ginger and wasabi are rich in antioxidants, helping to protect the skin and improve immune function.
A dash of soy sauce adds zest but should be used carefully so as to control your salt intake.
