Calories in Sushi

The really great thing about sushi is that it is pretty flexible if you are on a diet, but is sushi healthy? When comparing sushi to other possible foods that you could have for lunch or dinner, sushi is the only thing that won’t make feel you too guilty for eating. Of course there are plenty of different kinds of sushi out there that contain different ingredients and sauces.  However a low calorie feast is not off the table is you have a yearning for sushi. Did you know a roll of sushi is about one full cup of rice? The rice in sushi holds a considerable measure of starches, but if you are watching your carbs sushi can provide you a great alternative. Sushi is often times consumed without rice (sashimi), providing a sound treat without going over your daily calories.

Sashimi is thinly sliced raw fish like salmon and tuna. For example lets take a look at tuna sashimi.  Without rice one piece is only around 35 calories, but when you add rice to it, it jumps to 61 calories. Another  very popular and tasty way to avoid all of those carbohydrates  is ask for your roll to be wrapped with fresh cucumber instead of rice. This alternative is not only cuts down calories, it also is enjoyable.

How they make salmon sashimi:

Eating sushi without rice is fun and all, but most sushi calories are not actually that much, even with rice. Besides the rice, the calories in sushi can vary all depending what they come with. Salmon and tuna are a great source of protein.  It is like chicken breasts, but tastier! Fish is pretty lean, but that mayo on top sure does add on to the calorie count. Most mayo is disguised in the word spicy. Anything that says spicy on it usually has a mayo based sauce. Fish can be eaten raw, or cooked. Avoid anything fried as that will add on to your calories. Fried sushi goes by the name of tempura. Likewise goes for cream cheese.
Vegetable sushi is a very good for watching your calories.  It isn’t fried, nor does it come with cream cheese. The only thing you need to watch for is avocados since they are high in good fats but that is more calories. You can eat a pretty good amount of veggy sushi, but keep in mind of all the rice again.
