I am one of those people that can clean out a sushi place, demolishing roll after roll- only realizing at the end that I just consumed a pound of rice and fish. This sushi bowl however, I can demolish- and feel pretty good about it because it is filled with detoxifying vegetables, brain boosting fish, and an immune boosting sauce.
Best part- instead of white rice, I use cauliflower rice. Once you make cauliflower rice- countless recipe possibilities open up- and your world will be rocked. Mine was.
I use cauliflower rice in place of rice for almost everything because you can change the flavor so easily plus get all of the incredible nutritional benefits of cauliflower.
Side Note– not to put a damper on things, but be cautious about the sushi place you are going to- MOST are definitively not as healthy as you may be thinking. Read this blog article”Why Sushi is not a Health Food” and “Sushi Secrets” to see what I mean. . .
The typical “American” Japanese restaurant is destroying the basic Japanese ancient health tenants, westernizing your meal by adding all sorts of chemicals and additives. If you are eating sushi because you think it is healthy – Please look a little closer at what’s really lurking in your roll…”
So, to avoid farmed fish, artificial dyes, GMO oil, and MSG- make this bowl and feel happy that your body is not being overloaded by toxins.
Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a fantastic grain-free, low carb sushi recipe that is awesome! I personally, recommend using the olive oil instead of the sesame oil and using Wild-Alaskan sockeye salmon which is the king of fish and is loaded with powerful nutrition. This includes omega 3 fatty acids and astaxanthin.
Sea vegetable has tremendous health benefits including blood purifying chlorophyll, bioavailable iodine and phytonutrient compounds. I get my sea vegetables and other herbs in bulk through Mountain Rose Herbs here
