Reboot Sushi Wraps – Recipe Of The Week

Ingredients

Sushi can be one of those polarizing foods; it is a healthy treat that many love while others cringe at the thought of eating raw fish. Well, here’s your chance to taste and enjoy this delicious and nutritious meal full of just raw veggies! This quick and easy version is fast and fun to make. No rice to cook or high quality fish to find; just add veggies and enjoy! With these wraps anything goes. Add wasabi for a kick, ginger if you like and just about any combo of your favorite veggies. Even roasted sweet potato tastes delicious wrapped up in some Nori. Dip in low sodium soy sauce or Tamari or our Reboot Ginger Honey Soy Dressing.  (see recipe below).

 

Sea vegetables are packed with important nutrients like Vitamin A, iron, calcium and omega-3 fats. Omega-3 fats are essential fatty acids that we must eat; our bodies can not create these from other fats in the diet. They are potent anti-inflammatory nutrients being studied for their role in helping to prevent and promote survivorship of cardiovascular disease and cancers, and are important for healthy skin, vision and cognitive function.
