Virtually every day we eat lunch, and almost everyday people forget that sushi is a great escape from the mundane sandwiches that we always eat. The default selection for lunch through the years has skewed towards cheap, rapid, and generally unhealthy choices whenever we forget our meals at home, but the truth of the matter is that sushi is a superb option for any.
The reason people never think about sushi for a lunch option is because there is not generally the identical vulnerability to sushi as there are for other lunch choices. Everyone has seen burger commercials because they were small children, and the peanut butter and jelly sandwich was ingrained into our minds because we were old enough to chew over bread. So now with the world wondering about cleaner eating and healthier options it’s time for sushi to take center stage and become one of those choices that people think about if their stomachs are growling and loud.
Sushi, like the rest of the lunches, really comes in two choices. Both choices are great and the best thing to do would be to try getting someone to make you a bit of sushi, see if you like it, and then go from there. If you find there are certain kinds of sushi you are liking, you may then try to figure out the ingredients and make the rolls on your own at home. If you realize that you’re drawn to sashimi, which is raw fish sliced thinly and served on its own, then you only have to find a fish monger that will supply you with fish. As soon as you have the fish all you will need to do is to take it home and cut it into slices that you need to take for your lunch.
The excellent thing about eating sushi is that it is generally a pretty light lunch when you stick to the traditional sushi offerings. You can have several pieces of sashimi with a roll or two and be fully fueled for the rest of the day, without the lethargic feelings that usually come after eating a couple cheeseburgers. You won’t be slowed down after eating as sushi is usually easy to digest and provides pretty quick fuel for your body and mind.
So the next time you are thinking about getting something for lunch, or creating your lunch for the next day, try to give sushi a second though. It may prove to be your favorite lunch of the week.
