Once you've eaten sushi, look forward to your next sushi date. Sushi Is Always Fresh

Because only fresh ingredients are used to prepare sushi, you can be sure that no nutrients will be lost. You are also convinced that you do not receive products that have passed the expiry date. In most restaurants where sushi is on the menu, these delicious snacks are almost made in front of you. Because the preparation is very fast, you will never have to wait long before you can enjoy it. Sushi Is a Feast for The Eyes When you eat, the eye wants something. For that reason, sushi is ideal for putting on the table. The presentation of these delicious snacks is often done wonderfully and creatively. You can think of sushi brought to the table in the form of a boat—almost a shame to eat, but also too tasty to leave. You Can Also Prepare Sushi at Home While many great sushi restaurants exist, you can also choose to prepare these treats at home. The preparation of sushi is not complex because you hardly have to cook (only the rice). After preparing sushi, your kitchen doesn't have to look like a pigsty. You also don't have to toil for hours in the kitchen before you can finally get to the table. Preparing Sushi Cannot Go Wrong.

So, you don't have to roll sushi. This is perhaps the simplest way

to enjoy sushi. You can make a sushi bowl almost anywhere, anytime.

Nutrients In Sushi Many sushi lovers would not hesitate to put the stamp "healthy" on Asian finger food. But is sushi healthy? To clarify this question, we have to take a closer look at the different components of rice rolls and their ingredients: Raw fish The typical main ingredients for sushi are raw fish or seafood, including, for example, tuna, salmon, freshwater eel, mackerel, shrimp, and crab meat. These sea creatures are rich in high-quality animal protein, which humans need various metabolic processes and build up the body's proteins. Iodine, a component of thyroid hormones, and some vitamins are also included. So, fish is one of the primary dietary sources of vitamin D. Mackerel and salmon, in particular, can have a high vitamin D content. Fish is also an essential supplier of omega-3 fatty acids: the fatty acids are present in high concentrations in the brain and nerve cells and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Rice White rice grains are used in combination with a vinegar mixture, sugar, and salt to prepare sushi rice. White rice is the grain that was ground and polished after harvesting - but it hardly contains any vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Since white rice is easier and faster to digest than, for example, brown rice, the blood sugar level rises rapidly after consumption and drops again just as quickly - cravings can be the result. Refined carbohydrates, such as white rice, are suspected of increasing the risk of type 2 diabetes or heart problems. Nori sheets Hardly any sushi roll can do without nori algae. They keep the delicious filling together and are full of essential nutrients. In addition to vitamins A, C, E, and B 12, nori sheets provide zinc and some iodine. They are also fat-free and rich in protein and satiating fiber. Their ingredients can lower blood cholesterol and have an anti-carcinogenic effect. But if you now hope for a natural nutrient bomb, you're wrong: Only a tiny amount of the algae is needed and processed for the delicious sushi specialties. For an adequate nutrient supply, the rice rolls alone play only a

subordinate role. Soy sauce Maki, nigiri, and sashimi are dipped in soy sauce. However, for sushi fans, it is essential to know that the traditionally produced soy sauce contains valuable ingredients: it contains certain amino acids and a lot of protein, but only a few calories and no fat. US researchers also found that dark soy sauce contains about ten times as many antioxidants as red wine. To use this effect, one would have to drink soy sauce by the glass - the usual consumption amounts are hardly sufficient to bring verifiable health benefits. Some experts also warn that one should think of the salt content in soy sauce, which averages 13 percent. As a natural seasoning, soy sauce is more recommended and healthier than pure salt. Wasabi Without this hot and green spice, almost nothing works in Japan: wasabi. Incidentally, the widely used term "Japanese horseradish" is wrong: botanically speaking, there is no relationship between horseradish and wasabi. In addition to the dried leaves, the plant's root is mainly used to make the popular paste. The mustard oil glycosides, abundant in the wasabi, are among the phytochemicals that lower the risk of cancer and have an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect.

Author's Afterthoughts

I can’t find the perfect words to tell you how grateful I am that you gave this book a chance. I know it must not have been easy seeking this book out and going for it, especially since there are multitudes of materials out there with related content. You bought the book, but you didn’t stop there. You continued, took this journey with me, and read every page back to back. I have to say, you make all this worth it. I would like to know your thoughts about this book too. Your comments may also help others who are yet to download this book make a decision. What’s better than one person reading a book? Two people reading it. For my new books, follow my author page at http://www.graceberry.net Thank you, Grace Berry

About the Author Grace Berry started as a book reviewer after she graduated from college with a degree in creative writing. Afterward, she worked as an editor for a local magazine. She resigned her post and opted to work as a freelance journalist, writing for newspapers and magazines, online and offline. On one of such assignments, she wrote content for a food blog – a gig she found interesting. Excited about her discovery, she delved deeper into the food world, rediscovering her concept of food. She took a break from freelancing and sought local restaurateurs and chefs out to gather everything she could about their processes and cooking methods; an encounter she documented and wrote about later. Grace figured out that she could combine her flair for writing with her newfound love for everything food, so she took a plunge and started writing about recipes and other information related to getting the best from the kitchen to the dining. Now, she has compiled some of her years of research and experiment into a single volume of work, combining storytelling with factual information. Grace hopes to do more, and maybe start a catering business or a restaurant of her own in the future. At the moment, though, recipe developer and cookbook writer will have to do.
