Vegan California Roll Bowl 2

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!!
