Healthy & Simple Sushi

This is a great recipe for parties, potlucks, and family get-togethers. Everyone can join in the fun of making these healthy and delicious sushi rolls. But you don't have to wait for your next gathering to dig in -- roll up a few for tomorrow's lunch and be the envy of your fellow students or coworkers. Thanks to Heather Nauta, the creator of this recipe, you can master the technique of sushi rolling by watching her short video.

Ingredients:

1 cup uncooked short grain brown rice
pinch sea salt
1 to 2 tablespoon(s) brown rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
4 nori sheets
1 avocado, sliced into narrow strips
1/4 red bell pepper, cut into narrow strips
handful alfalfa or clover sprouts

Get creative and find your favorite combinations with other ingredients like sliced cucumber, grated carrots, tofu, tempeh, and more.


Directions:

  1. Rinse and drain the rice, then add 2 cups water and a pinch of salt. Bring it to a boil, then simmer for 45 minutes. The rice then needs time to cool. Stir in enough vinegar to make the rice stick to itself.
  2. Lay a sheet of nori on your rolling mat.
  3. Spread some rice out to cover the nori sheet, leaving a space along the back edge to seal the roll. Place a small amount of vegetables along the close edge of the sheet.
  4. Roll the sheet up and over the row of vegetables. Press back towards you, and also down onto the roll. Make sure you are getting a tight roll but don't squish it. Peel the rolling mat off the front edge, and continue to roll.
  5. Finish by sealing with the strip at the far edge that has no rice. Before cutting into pieces, let the sushi roll sit for a few minutes for the nori to soften from the rice.

    Note: Bowls of tamari (or soy sauce), pickled ginger and wasabi are commonly served alongside for dipping.

Fish Oil Supplements
No Help to Heart or Brain

Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) reports that, "Two new studies found that omega-3 supplements, often sold in the form of fish oil, do not improve the health of the brain or heart.

After following more than 12,500 type 2 diabetes patients over the age of 50 for an average of 6.2 years, researchers saw no difference in heart health between those taking an omega-3 supplement versus a placebo... Another recent meta-analysis came to the same conclusion for people with a history of heart problems.

Additionally, in a new review looking at omega-3 supplementation for brain health, researchers found no link between omega-3 supplements and the prevention or improvement of dementia."
