All you can eat sushi is a major trend, and for good reason! It’s delicious, and can be nutritious… if you know what to choose!
My favourite swap of all time is a cucumber roll- literally!

The amount of rice in a roll varies everywhere you go, and it can be challenging to guesstimate how much rice you’re actually eating! A lot of places will wrap rolls in cucumber if you ask for it: A simple swap filled with the same umami flavour!

Choose dishes with minimal ingredients that you know the contents of, such as:

  1. Miso soup
  2. Grilled chicken or beef skewers
  3. Sashimi (raw fish)
  4. Tataki (seared sashimi)
  5. Sushi (raw fish on rice)
  6. Rolls wrapped in cucumber
  7. Bowl of riceMost places will bring a side of sliced avocado and cucumber if you nicely ask for it! 🙂 


  1. Rolls with mayo
    Two tbsp of mayo can easily be slapped onto a roll, totalling 10g of fat and 100 calories. Ask if it’s possible to be prepared without.
  2. Seaweed salad
    Usually loaded with added sugar/corn syrup and sesame oil
  3. Deep fried items, such as tempura or “crispy” rolls
  4. Noodles or meats smothered in sweet sauces



Homemade sushi is a great alternative to eating out, and is super simple to throw together! For the recipe, see here!
