Is Sushi a Healthier Option?
As we roll into a new year, many of us look towards healthier and better-for-us foods to help us reach new goals. Thankfully, you don’t have to look very far for healthier options with Hissho.
Sushi is packed with all kinds of goodness like fresh, healthy ingredients and boasts benefits like omega-3s, high protein and low saturated fat. Hissho uses all natural ginger, wasabi, rice, vinegar and nori to give you a quality sushi experience.
For those wanting to grab a quick and healthy lunch, dinner or snack, we have four feature rolls to try. The California Roll got its start in the 1960’s and spread across the U.S. in the late 20th century. This fusion roll provides a great start for the sushi beginner, featuring fresh cucumber, avocado and surimi – or imitation crab. No raw fish involved!
Another beginner’s – and vegetarian’s – favorite is the Veggie Roll, featuring fresh carrot, cucumber and avocado. Fresh veggies in this roll serve up vitamins A, C and E, while the seaweed wrap provides minerals like calcium, iodine and zinc.
The Hissho Healthy Roll can be another vegetarian-friendly choice – a simple maki roll featuring fresh carrot, cucumber or avocado; or make it non-veg with imitation crab. Cucumbers featured in this roll are low-cal and packed with vitamins A and C, fiber and silica – a compound shown to foster healthy skin.
For the dedicated sushi lover, another healthy option is the Nippon Favorite – a simple maki roll that features tuna, salmon, shrimp, eel or yellowtail. More than half the calories in this simple maki roll comes from protein, making it a great light meal or protein-powered snack.
We offer brown rice options in most of our locations as well – brown rice is a wholesome whole grain that is high in fiber, rich in antioxidants and contains naturally-occurring oils. You can also ask your local Hissho chef to customize your roll to feature more protein or fresh veggies to suite your quest for healthy living.
Whatever your goals may be for the new year, Hissho’s got the healthy options to help you make it happen!
