How Healthy is Sushi for you?

Healthy Sushi

The first thing that many people think of when it comes to sushi is that it is a raw food. But in truth, not all foods at the sushi bar are raw. The sushi that is raw needs to be well-controlled in order to prevent bacterial growth. As long as raw sushi is cared for properly, there is nothing to worry about.
Sushi is naturally very lean and healthy due to it’s low-fat content. Sushi is generally made of rice, fish, and vegetables. All ingredients in sushi should be exceptionally fresh for best quality.
Although sush is known as being very healthy, it can often be turned into an unhealthy meal. One such way is due to sushi often being wrapped in a white rice roll. White rice is a starch which the body converts into sugar quickly. This type of sushi preparations adds very little nutrients. In terms of healthiness, it is important to have a greater amount of sushi and a lesser amount of roll.
