1. High in Omega 3 fatty acids
Omega 3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids, ones that we don’t consume enough of in our modern diet. Think of sushi as a supplement, providing these much needed healthy fats.
2. It is fun
You can use chopsticks or your hands for nigiri. It’s also very interactive by dipping the sushi pieces into the soy sauce, mixing the wasabi, picking at the ginger, and marking the sushi sheets while picking out the menu items. This makes for a fun occasion for a family meal with kids or a night out on the town!

Sushi is a great way for westerners to get a touch of Japanese culture. The Japanese see art in simplicity, and sushi represents this very well. The fusion of East meets West has added some interesting combinations but nonetheless the Japanese culture still shines.
