To sushi or not to sushi?

Fresh sushi seems like such a healthy option, but is it? While fresh
sashimi has numerous positive nutritional properties including being low in
calories and rich in omega 3 fats, some of the popular rolls of choice contain
much carbohydrate and plenty of calories. For this reason, if you do enjoy
sushi you are best to choose sashimi and really enjoy it with the beans and
seaweed salad to really get the low calorie benefits of Japanese food.
