Sushi can be a nutrient-packed meal – if you know what to look for. The ingredients in the most basic forms of sushi – fish and rice – are naturally low in fat and high in protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. When you add in a few choice veggies, you’ll get an extra boost of vitamins and minerals.
Fish used in sushi can contain several important vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, Vitamin B12 and Phosphorus, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids, which have a variety of health benefits. And let’s not forget one of the most nutrient-rich ingredients in any sushi roll – nori (seaweed) used to wrap all of those tasty ingredients together. Nori is protein- and fiber-rich, packing in several vitamins and minerals as well.
