Want a light and fresh dinner option on a summer night?

Go for sushi!
But don’t be fooled, if you eat the wrong type of sushi you can be adding far more calories than you bargained for.

When you add cream cheese or spicy mayo, or “crunchy” (aka fried) you are getting extra calories and fat. Your typical California roll or the standard Shrimp and Avocado roll ranges from 250-300 calories, while a Cream Cheese Roll with Tuna or a Crunchy Shrimp roll suddenly may cost you 570-700 calories per roll.

If you love the spicy rolls, just be aware you’ll add about 100 calories per roll to the regular versions.

Make sure you stick with rolls that are made with brown rice, veggies (like cucumbers, carrots, and avocados), and fish (like salmon, yellow tail, and whitefish). What’s your favorite kind of sushi?

We are California and Tuna roll fans- and occasionally, if the spicy is done just right (not much mayo) we go for that!
