  • Sushi

    Since going primal I don't think there's a food I've really missed except for Sushi. I know sashimi is good to eat, but can't say I love my fish by itself. Are sushi rolls fine to eat in moderation? If so, is brown rice going to be better or will my body essentially treat it the same as white rice? How do I know if I'm getting quality fish?

      I think sushi is so delicious that I allow myself once a month or less to just go full-out and eat the most delicious, expensive, orgasmic whatever rolls that I want. Sushi is too good to try and make it super healthy. If you eat it all the time, then try and Primal-ize it, but if not, I say go all out.

        I buy sushi grade tuna at the market (it's insanely priced) wrap in a sheet of nori with avocado, cucumber, and sesame seeds. Dip in sesame oil mixed with a little sea salt and wasabi. I'd also like to find some coconut amino's for home use.

        I think soy sauce is one of the big issues for me in going out for sushi. White rice is harmless enough but soy sauce has not only soy, but also wheat and massive quantities of sodium..

        eta- Mark had a good post on the main page about white vs. brown rice a little while back. I forget the deets' (if anyone has the link, please share) but IIRC it basically said- go white.

          I used to be a bartender (ugh, some of the best times of my life!) and worked at one place that had a sushi bar. I went to visit and stuffed my face with many awesome rolls.

          Sushi is too good to primalize, just eat the rice and move on I say, if you must, do it after a nice good workout I guess. I didn’t think twice about it.

            That sounds insanely delicious. How much does the tuna cost??

              I’ve always hated soy sauce so that’s never been an issue for me. I eat my sushi/sashimi with tons of ginger and I almost always ask for whatever spicy sauce they use, and I’m good.

              Once at the bar I mentioned above the cooks made me a dish to welcome me (seriously kind Chinese people, I miss them and their bad English) and it was THE BEST SUSHI ROLL I EVER HAD. I asked them if they remember what it was but they have no idea.

              I still cry about it sometimes.

                  white rice is better than brown rice in terms of primal diet.
                  it depends on how clean you want to eat, often there are sauces in some rolls that i would personally stay away from.

                  and FYI the fishing of tunas is destroying the ocean and soon there will be none left. though i love the stuff i personally don't think it's worth the damage it is doing.

                    If you want soy sauce you can buy wheat free tamari. No gluten then at least.

                          $20-$24 for a steak of it- I forget what by weight. 20-something a lb for sure. But it's premium wild Tuna. Nice dark red and SO fresh. I buy it as a preward for not going for all you can eat sushi. LOL.

                          Then I make myself hand rolls breakfast lunch and dinner for a couple of days.

                            He's hilarious. I loved the one where he climbed up a tree out of the water, took his shirt off, wrung it out, put it back on and then dived back into the water (with a backflip) lol.

                              I had never really had much sushi until DH insisted we have some for a date night a couple of weeks ago. I'm hooked! It was so good! His birthday is next week, and guess where we're going for dinner?!

                              My feeling is that in degrees of crapiness, sushi is definitely not the worst thing in the book. In fact, there's quite a bit about it that's really good and nearly primal, exept maybe the white rice & soy sauce.

                              So now that I've been fully introduced to the wonders of sushi, DH & I will be enjoying it on a somewhat regular basis (maybe a once/month sushi night).
