SUSHI - thumbs up or thumbs down?


It really depends on who you are asking. Recent survey which was reported in the New York Times and asked a sample of members of the public as well as nutritionists if sushi is healthy came up with 75% of nutritionists saying ‘yes’ and 49% of the public saying ‘no’. If you present this question to me (as often people do) my answer would be ‘it depends’. It really depends on the content, the source and the circumstances. It can be very good, very bad or just a waste of calories.


Case in point is the avocado. One of my favourite healthy food (it’s a fruit by the way and not a vegetable). Once you take it and deep fry it in oil it stops being the healthy avocado we started with. And don’t even get me started on the source of the fruit the environment it grew in, the water it was irrigated with, pesticide, possible colourants and what not. You know where I’m going with this.
