Today I am going to be constructively deconstructive.
Because realistically, I am probably not going to roll my own sushi. I mean, I think it sounds like a ton of fun, and I am sure I would get a lot of laughs at how hilariously bad I would be at it…I mean just yesterday I was experimenting in the kitchen when I accidentally elbowed the top to the food processor and it flew across the room. I am not terribly coordinated. Anyway, when I want sushi, I usually go out for sushi. I love going out for sushi.
But, I have to admit I get a hankering for it pretty frequently. And the nearest sushi restaurant is like 30-40 minutes away. (I live kind of live in the middle of nowhere – which I love most of the time. Except when I really want sushi in my mouth). So, here is my quick fix sushi. It’s like the easiest thing to make, and it really is tasty. All the flavors of a California roll, tossed into a bowl. Happy stuff.
I am pretty obsessed with avocados lately. And this is seriously one of my favorite ways to enjoy them. I think you are going to love it!
Health highlight of avocado: though avocados are higher in fat, it monounsaturated, and people who have higher consumption of these kinds of fats tend to have a lower risk for heart disease and also tend to be slimmer! Avocados are anti-inflammatory and contain lots of healthy antioxidants. They are a good source of carotenoids, and because of the fat content, these nutrients are optimized for absorption!!
