Hungry Girl is here to help you make smart Sushi choices...
 

PORTION DISTORTION

 
Quite often sushi is served by the piece.  That makes it easy to over-order.  If you want to save calories, carbs and/or points, order "light rice."  To make your meal more filling, bulk it up with an order of  oshitashi (boiled spinach with soy sauce).
 
MISO HUNGRY
 
Studies show that people who start their meals with healthy soup end up eating fewer calories.  Miso, with around just 50 calories per cup, certainly  falls into that category.  Try it with clams, mushrooms or tofu.  Yum!
 
RAW DEALS
Heads Up! Look out for the following words. They'll clue you in that you're about to order something not so diet-friendly...

"Tempura" -  Tempura is basically Japanese for "batter fried."  Tempura = a fatfest!

"Spider" - Spider rolls are usually greasy fried crab rolls.  They sound good, but they really pack in calories and fat.

"Dynamite" -  In sushi-land, the word "dynamite" basically means, "baked in a sea of gooey mayo."  Skip it!

"Crunch" -  Yet another cute & clever way of saying "fried & fatty."


ROCKIN' ROLLS!

 

 

 


Cucumber Roll
  - This crunchy, healthy delight packs in just 130 calories & no fat!
Spicy Tuna Roll  - If made with a small amount of mayo, one of these will likely contain between 250 - 290 calories, and 5 - 10g of fat.
California Roll  - Order without mayo, and this one will set you back about 275 - 300 calories, and have 5 - 10g of fat.

EXTRA, EXTRA!







What about those extras?

The Good:  Wasabi, Soy Sauce, Seaweed, Ginger, Edamame

The Dangerous:  Mayo, Cream Cheese, Various Oils
