You Will Need
- Light rice
- Low-sodium soy sauce
Avoid fried items
Avoid fried rolls or anything battered. Steer clear of dumplings, tempura, and spider rolls.
Pass up extras
Pass on ingredients in Americanized rolls, such as cream cheese, mayonnaise, and avocado, which pile on the fatty calories.
Request less rice
Ask your sushi chef to go light on the rice in your rolls. Opt for sashimi, which are plain slices of raw fish.
Avoid fad sushi
Avoid rolls made with unusual ingredients like duck or quail eggs. Although a traditional ingredient, eel is also higher in calories and fat than other fish.
Pick condiments wisely
Pick your accompanying condiments wisely. Opt for low-sodium soy sauce and limit wasabi paste and pickled ginger, which are both high in sodium.
