Date night with the partner coming soon or a lunch date with your friends? Don't want to sacrifice all the hard work you have been putting into your diet and all the weight you have lost in the gym? Looking for a healthy alternative you can still absolutely indulge in without having to worry about the carbs or the sugar or fat??
Here's a little secret to let you onto..... Sushi is BEAUTIFULLY TASTY and EXTREMELY cost effective (depending on where you go) and doesnt mean feeling awful 🤢🐖
Omega3 health benefits (Good Fat)
It is essential that your body is fed good fats such as Omega3 as it cannot make it by itself. This fat is easy to burn and provides extra strength and recovery for your gym session. There are also a handful of health benefits such as reducing high cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart disease and inflammation and it can lower blood pressure and balance the rhythm of the heart.
Psychological Stimulation and Cognitive Function
Omega3 fatty acids also nourish and repair brain cells and, as fish is also rich in protein and essential fats, it helps focus the mind, increase concentration and maintain energy. The benefits also include boosting memory and can help with cognitive function.
This is perfect for those of you with a busy week ahead, a need for a relaxing break and certainly leaves you feeling fresh and awake.
Avocados also have bountiful vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, like lutein that help to protect eyes
As a primary source of rich protein, Sushi balances blood sugar and keeps energy levels stable. This leads to longer spells of satiety, enhanced metabolism and less snacking between meals, encouraging steady and safe weight loss.
Serious Immune Boost
Co-factor minerals are also highly present such as zinc, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and iron, which play an important role in energy production and immunity. Vitamin A, Carotene, Vitamin C and Retinal are plentiful too.
Muscle Growth and Repair
Bodybuilders, athletes and regular exercisers will often choose Sushi as their "cheat meal" as it can aid muscle repair and recovery. On cheat day, this is the real idea of having a day off from exercise - growth and repair. Why not gather the maximum benefit and have sushi at least two or three times a week as part of your health and fitness regime.
It also contains plentiful doses of magnesium, ‘nature’s tranquilliser’ mineral, making it helpful in providing energy as well as relaxation plus the added mineral that your muscles and joints need to recover from the strain they have been through.

Aged Skin Prevention
Sushi is a prolific source of antioxidants, which slows down cell damage, prevents permanent oxidation damage to the skin and slows down overall ageing. These antioxidants preserve the cell structure of the skin, help keep cells younger both externally and internally and are integral to anti-ageing.
There really is no end to the benefits of Sushi! It's dishing out delicious benefits to all the family and can cater for all taste buds.
