    Sushi






    I have been eating this on occasion lately. I goto the local Health food store and buy two plastic boxes of it. Everything in it appears good, except the white rice. I usually get the tuna, wrapped in seaweed with gucamole. But it has the damn white rice, but not much. So, how good/bad is sushi for you? I would assume it was good except for the rice... Wish they used brown rice...

    it shouldn't be bad for you, I mean its just fish and rice and some greens. White rice isn't all that bad for you, it just lacks the fiber and other vitamins that brown rice has, and I believe it's GI isn't much higher than brown anyways. But someone correct me if I'm wrong. does it have nutritional info. and ing. list?

    They make sushi with brown rice, but it isn't as good. The brown rice is sort of hard compared to the soft white rice. Anyway, they usually call it the same thing but they put "healthy" in front. (i.e. "Healthy California Roll")

    Honestly, that tiny little bit of white rice won't hurt you.

    Sushi is fine.

    If it is a good sushi place the rice should be authentic japanese short-grain sushi rice. When cooked correctly (without adding a whole heap of sugar to the recipe - which some people do) this means the GI would be low (authentic japanese sushi rice has a low GI)...

    The fish is an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fats (especially if you eat salmon)... But the intake would not be enough for your needs - well, not unless you had a few rolls, which would probably push your carbs up too high... You might want to get one or two rolls and then some sashimi to make up the difference.

    Other ingredients (seaweed, cucumber, japanese vegetables etc) are all fine for you too...

    But I would watch some of the other ingredients (esp. mayo.... but the guacomole may be ok, depending on what they put in it - if it is mostly avocado then it should be ok)...

    Anybody knows if sushi is really safe to eat? I know all Japan eats it but I read some bad cases due to the uncooked fish.

    BigDyl, sushi is not that hard to make, why not do your own with brown rice? Don´t worry about the white rice though, it is not that bad. It only lacks nutrients and the GI is a little bit higher.

    Who cares if it's good for you. Sushi is fucking awesome. Period. I have eaten 50 pieces of sushi in a sitting before, maybe 15-20 being pieces from rolls.
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...

    Sushi is great for you....save for the bad carbs from the white rice... If that's your concern...eat Sashimi then...no rice, whatsoever... Sushi is nice and high in protein obviously.

    Sushi certainly kicks ass, I eat it almost every day and roll my own to sometimes, You get handrolled sushi which are small cones of Nori with sushi fixins inside, they tend to have less rice in them....

    I don't think uncooked fish is bad,I have been eating raw fish from since I was a kid.We would go out and pull up the nets,every other saturday morning,and my dad would get these huge clams,we would sit on the boat eating fish straight from the ocean and clams raw,so I don't think it's harmful at all.

    sashimi is much better value for money - no filler (rice)!!

    If your store has wasabe and fresh ginger, have your sashimi with it - the taste rocks and its fantastic for digestion.

    The newer HEB grocery stores here in Austin have fresh sushi bars in them. It is fricking delicious. The small amount of rice should not be an issue when you look at the rest of the quality ingredients that you are eating with it. No major spices or processed sauces. Just real natural vegies, clean fish with all the nutrients still in it, and a Sobee Energy Drink to wash it all down with.

    Are you guys talking about rolls? or slices? One roll should be 6 slices right? Are you talking about 108 slices(which would be a serious shitload, call the Guiness book of world records) here? Or 3 rolls which anybody could eat?

    So the sushi seems to be ok, but with guacamole? Isn't that a bit fattening?

    I've been tuna fishing for my entire life and have learned to limit tuna intake. I guess it depends on where the fish is from, but because I live on the Atlantic shore it is possible to get mercury poisoning from too much tuna intake (due to contamination). It isn't limited to raw tuna either, it includes canned tuna.

    It is actually avacados in the sushi and I simply ask the to replace the avacados with cucumber.
