Yummy for the Tummy: Sushi Style!

Yesterday, I went to a sushi bar for the first time to try actually sushi. I have been to places that sell sushi before but every time I went, I ended up getting bento boxes with at most a California roll. I decided to be adventurous and try it out with one of my friends!

My Order

I ordered a Bahamas roll which had crab and mango as well as avocado with a crunchy top. This roll is on the left side in the picture below. I also ordered a Paradise roll which had shrimp tempura, lobster salad, salmon, and avocado with special sauce on top. This roll is on the right side in the picture below.

I tried to order different types of sushi with different meats to add variety and see what I would like. The textures were different for these two with the Bahamas roll being more soft and chewy while the Paradise roll had more of a crunch to it.

Health Benefits

Sushi has many different health benefits. Here are only a few to list:

  • helps manage weight loss
  • helps prevent cancer
  • sushi is rich in omega 3 and fatty acids
  • great source for calcium to build strong bones
  • source for iron in your blood
  • helps slow down the aging process of your skin
  • as well as a great source for protein

You can read more about these benefits more in depth on the article “11 Amazing Health Benefits of Sushi” at the link below.

 

Overall, my first experience with sushi was nothing that I ever imagined it to be. It was above and beyond! Researching the benefits that it gives also makes it exciting to try sushi and hopefully try more.
