Sushi love!

I absolutely love sushi, but find all of the rolls that I love are fatty! Most of them have cream cheese or are fried. What are your low calorie sushi options?!

    Have you tried making your own? That way you could control the ingredients. It's actually pretty easy. Youtube has videos on it.

    I usually get the veggie kind...forgot what its called but its the rice and cucumber roll. If I do decide to get the ones with more calories I just take a bite or two of it. :bigsmile:

    I make mine at home. The California rolls are pretty good. Just keep in mind that when eating sushi, to take it light with the soy sauce- high in sodium.

    I'm in LOVE with all things sushi!!! seriously.in.love!
    what I do (probably not the best advice) but I use my cheat meal on sushi. When I eat sushi, I don't even bother logging it. I just go for it, hahahaha.

    Lowest calorie options are cucumber rolls, veggie rolls, california rolls, etc. things without sauces, dips, etc.

    sashimi is also very low cal.

    Try an Alaskan Roll - Salmon, Avacado (good fat), and cucumber - good stuff!

    I love spicy tuna rolls and seaweed salad. Try to go for sushi at least a couple times a month. I would try to make your own..or when you go the sushi bars get the veggie ones.

    Happy eating!

    AGREED (not that that necessarily makes it right haha)! and stay away from rolls that are "spicy", the spicy sauce is mayo-based

    I <3 Sashimi - try the salmon first it's a bit sweeter than most of the others.

    If you're currently the "California Roll" type of sushi eater (which, I'm pretty sure most of us start out as), I can tell you that my progression went like this:

    CA Roll
    Spicy tuna
    Unagi
    Rainbow Roll
    Nigiri (hamachi, salmon, tuna, shrimp)
    Sashimi

    mmmm my fave! I usually get a tuna roll (just raw tuna w/rice and nori) A salmon and avocado roll...Or a rainbow roll.

    Sometimes I just go straight sashimi to avoid the rice!
  • sesecatsesecat Posts: 124Member Member Posts: 124Member Member
    Sashimi only! Tuna is better than Salmon.

    This would be my vote. I also enjoy carrot in some rolls, but I'm terrible with names of all the different rolls so I can't say what specifically has them...I generally just eat what is put in front of me


    Sashimi....I can't do it. I gotta have the rice to cover the texture of raw fish, blech.

    I almost ALWAYS get California Rolls... rarely, for a treat I'll get Philadelphia Rolls

    my roommate and i are gonna attempt to make our own tonight!
  • gingerfoxxxgingerfoxxx Posts: 267Member Member Posts: 267Member Member
    mmmmmmm, sushi! Have you had sashimi? Its just the fish, or nigiri is fish on top of rice, usually "glued" together with wasabi and a little seaweed. SO GOOD! eel and tuna are my favs. I usually put extra wasabi on as well, because the spicier the better! :) it is very low cal and satisfying :)

    i have tried the nigiri and sashimi, but i really love the good ol california roll and veggie rolls... they are really low cal too. I ADORE the shrimp tempura with some spicy sauce.. but not low cal so i don't go for it too often anymore :o)
  • BigBoneSistaBigBoneSista Posts: 2,389Member Member Posts: 2,389Member Member
    Eel is my fav...I think the name is Dragon Roll. Most time I don't do the rolls though. I just get the regular smoke salmon, red snapper, white tuna and eel sashimi. YUMMY!!
