Lately I’ve been completely obsessed with eating sushi the last two weeks.
Sushi is one food that I eat all the time when it sounds good and then get tired of it and avoid it for six months. I used to eat it pretty frequently when I was in Memphis but went through a I-hate-sushi period for a while. I won’t eat sushi if I’m not in the mood for it but when I’m in the mood I HAVE TO HAVE IT!
In the past two weeks I’ve eaten sushi at least 5 times. For me that’s a LOT. Basically if I’ve eaten outside my house I’ve eaten sushi. And it’s been so, so, good.
My favorite option right now is sushi from St. Pierre’s. It’s a chain here in NZ that has decent enough sushi that works out to be a pretty healthy option. They have weekly deals where the sushi of the day is only $5.40 making it a good deal for lunch.
Last week I grabbed a salmon roll and this week I bought a teriyaki chicken roll. Both were the sushi deal of the day and both were delicious.
The nutritional stats aren’t too bad either:
I’m counting calories right now and that fits into my day well since I aim for 500 calories or so for lunch. Pretty good for a satisfying sushi lunch!
The only issue with sushi is the high sodium in the sushi and the super sodium packed soy sauce that goes so well with it. I keep the soy sauce to the bare minimum for taste. Plus I drink a ton of extra water on the days when I eat sushi and keep my other meals for the day very low in sodium.
