Healthy Sushi

Healthy Sushi

Sushi is seen by many as a healthy food anyway, and compared to fast food burgers and the like, it is definitely a better option. But the white rice that is used can spike blood sugar levels and is high in carbs, with no additional nutritional benefits.

So check out these healthy delicious little items and make yourself and your kids a halo inducing meal with a difference! Read More
