3 Reasons to Eat More Maki Sushi, Hilo, Hawaii

Maki sushi contains a layer of rice around the interior filling, all of which is wrapped up in seaweed. There may be other toppings on top of the roll, and it may be cut into pieces or served whole. Whether you’re packing a lunch for work or eating out with friends, this should be a regular part of your diet.

The Benefits of Maki Sushi

1. Easy to Eat

Maki is often referred to as beginner sushi. The compact roll is easy to pick up with chopsticks, even for those not experienced with these utensils. It’s often cut into bite-sized pieces, making it shareable. When dining out with friends, you can all try a variety of rolls and enjoy a communal eating experience.

If you eat your roll whole, the nori wrapping contains it so you can eat it like a burrito.

2. Healthy Fillings

sushiMaki sushi comes with a wide variety of healthy fillings that balance out your diet. The carbohydrates in the rice and protein in the fish fill you up, so you’re less likely to snack on unhealthy foods throughout the day.

Fish such as salmon and tuna are full of omega-3 fatty acids, which boost heart health and support healthy pregnancies.

The rolls also come with healthy vegetables such as avocado, cucumber, and carrots.

3. Variety of Flavors

With sushi, there’s something for everyone. They come with different fish, vegetables, and sauces to suit every palate. Beginners who are intimidated by raw fish can choose a tasty deep-fried or vegetarian roll.
