Eat– for Good Health

For an elegant meal, try my recipe for Brown Rice California Sushi Rolls that yields 5 servings at 140 calories each.  Seafood is the single most satisfying protein in the universe.  If you are watching sodium, skip the soy sauce.  Enjoy Sushi with steamed broccoli and a piece of fruit, rounding calories up to about 250 if you are following the Gold Standard of Thin Plan.

My first sushi roll by mymealbox

Ingredients for 5 servings:

    1 Package of dried seaweed
    1 c Brown rice, cooked
    Shredded carrot
    Imitation or real crab meat
    Rice vinegar
    Soy sauce, sliced fresh ginger 
Cook the brown rice slowly to the point of stickiness. Cool.  Peel and then cut the cucumbers in long thin strips and then soak them in 1 tbsp rice vinegar and 1 c. water.  Cut avocado into long strips.  Spread vinegar and water mixture over a square piece of foil. Slide a piece of dried seawead through a square dish of water bigger than the seaweed. Just dampen it. You don’t want to get it too wet. Lay it flat on the foil. Spread rice across top half of seaweed. Lay 1 strip of cucumber, 1 strip of avocado, carrots and crab across top part of rice. Using the foil to help you roll but not rolling the foil up into the sushi, roll the sushi as tight as you can. Lay a second dampened seaweed sheet down and roll a second time. Let it set and dry out in a covered container in the fridge until ready to serve. Cut with a sharp knife into 1 inch strips and serve with soy sauce, and if you have it, fresh sliced ginger.

    This is funny– at the place I buy sushi, they always put that green plastic grass in it. When I was looking at your photo, I thought something was missing!

    As many of you know, Jennifer Hudson went from a size 16 to a size 6. One of her favorite meals is 10 pieces of sushi (any variety other than tempura which is fried) with 1 cup edamame (in pods) and 2 cups mixed baby greens with 2 tsp. sesame ginger dressing.
