SAVE MONEY AND DIY

Let’s be honest here. How much are you spending on sushi when you dine out or order take out? Are you like me and cycle through craving the same things for a period of time? I recently just came off a pizza binge.

I wanted nothing but pizza – even when I was trying to be good, I would be at the gym and see a pizza commercial and I just had to have it. Crazy cravings, I know! I do the same with sushi. But its so expensive once you and your significant other start buying 3-4+ sushi rolls (because you can’t just get 1 or 2, right?)!

Now, I’m not telling you to completely stop ordering out. That would be crazy, too. But what’s the harm in trying to make it at home and save a few bucks?? None!

This is the most simple, flavorful and the cheapest version of a sushi bowl. I generally use the vegetables I have on hand for toppings, but you can add whatever strikes your fancy or you have on hand in your own kitchen. 

TOPPING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Chopped mango
  • Shrimp
  • Sashimi (sushi grade salmon)
  • Tofu (if you’re vegetarian/vegan)
  • Cauliflower rice instead of white rice
  • Quinoa instead of white rice
  • Nori – cut into pieces (what sushi generally comes wrapped in)
  • Ahi tuna (sushi grade)
  • Green onions/Scallions

Just allow yourself to get creative! Making sushi bowls are not only more cost effective, but easier than trying to roll your own sushi. So give it a whirl!
