I. Love. Sushi. I especially like to eat a lot of it…which is hard to do because good sushi restaurants are usually pretty expensive per roll. My brother-in-law made sushi one time and I got hooked and bought a sushi kit myself and learned how to properly make the rice…the most important part. After many, many tries I finally came up with the perfect ratio. I am going to give you the sticky rice recipe but the fillings are up to you! In the pictures I have many different fillings- salmon, cream cheese, crab, mango, jalapeno…and probably a few other that I can’t remember. I had been telling my friends from work about how I loved to make sushi so I finally had them over to try it out. I also served the sushi with some edamame and one of my guests brought saki. Unfortunately the sodium content is very high in sushi and the best rice for the job is white…just make sure to drink a lot of water and have more potassium than normal to flush the salt out.

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
