If you love cooking, why don't you try making your own sushi? It's a lot of fun and something the whole family can enjoy doing together - and perhaps even better, there are lots of health benefits of eating sushi which is a massive bonus. Here are some of the benefits you and your
family can reap by adding sushi to your weekly menu.

Heart health

Using smoked salmon trimmings and other oily fish when you make sushi means you're looking after your heart as well as your tummies. It's an easy way to increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help to prevent clogged arteries and health problems like strokes, heart attacks and atherosclerosis.

Cancer prevention

Include ingredients like ginger and wasabi are great for helping to prevent healthy cells from mutating into cancer cells. Check what sort of fish you use as well, since many different varieties are rich in selenium which has been found to boast excellent anti-cancer properties.

Digestive health

Soy sauce is included in sushi a lot so make sure you have it in your store cupboard. While it is high in sodium so perhaps not appropriate for people with high blood pressure, it also has lots of protein and iron in it, so can do a lot to aid your digestion and help protect your colon.


If you're trying to slim down, eating lots of protein-rich fish is advisable. It can help boost your metabolism significantly, while also helping your body function more efficiently.
