I love sushi. I often refer to it as "perfect" food. And how lucky am I to live a block and a half away from a great sushi restaurant? But now that I am really trying to pay attention to making healthy choices, I began to wonder if sushi really is perfect food. Is it healthy? It seems healthy. Tiny bites of fish, vegies and rice. What could be bad? But I'm smart enough to know that I can convince myself that anything is healthy, if it's something that I want to eat. I mean, potatoes are just vegetables, right?

Yesterday I wanted to get sushi for dinner so I decided to do a little research. I found some pages that I thought had good info. Here they are in case you're interested.

Basically I was reminded that, as with everything, it boils down to two things: choice and restraint. Many years ago, I asked a friend of mine who I hadn't seen in some time if she still drank alcohol. She replied that her philosophy was "everything in moderation". I liked that and decided to adopt it myself. Well, I've got the everything part pretty much nailed. Now I'm working on the moderation part!

So, last night I had sushi, but I made better choices - yay!
