Healthy Food?

Over the next few days I will be posting about some foods that might appear healthy but aren't

1. Sushi

 The veggies and seaweed wrap are low-cal

but a lot of the most popular rolls are slathered with cream cheese or mayo
(e.g., in that spicy sauce that comes on many options),

and the seafood inside may be tempura-battered and deep fried

Not to mention the white rice, and often they are filled with imitation crab - not even real fish so you can say good-bye to any potential essential oils benefits

a standard roll can clock in at 500 to 600 calories.

Then you add the tempura battered seafood and veggies side
And dunk everything in a huge dose of Soy Sauce - hellllo sodium

Try to make sushi healthier by skipping the sauce and anything tempura battered,
Asking for brown rice instead of white,
And instead of soy sauce, up the flavour with wasabi or pickled ginger

SO TRUE! I have reminded a friend of this a million times when she was ordering cream cheese rolls!
