  1. I absolutely adore sushi, but lately for some reason it's been making me a bit squeamish. So I've been having shrimp tempura rolls, avocado rolls, and cuke rolls. it seems to satisfy my craving perfectly. I also *love* that seaweed salad. I picked some of that up from my local Korean market last week and nibbled at it constantly until it was gone.

    I eat a good amount of fish, so I guess that's how I get most of my EPA and DHA. If you're not going to eat fish or take fish oils, I guess you'd need to cut back on consumption of omega 6's so your body is free to process the ALA. Would that make sense?

  2. Keep the science lessons coming! I love your explanations, so much more interesting and easy to comprehend than textbook explanations. Sounds like I actually don't get enough EPA and DHA haha. I'll look into these fish oil pills.

  3. I usually love trying little "unknown" restaurants, they usually have the best menus and food. Too bad the sushi wasn't the best there! I actually have tried Sushi, but my mom and I are going for it this week, any recommendations?

    I love your nerdy lessons! :)

  4. I'm sorry to hear the sushi you had wasn't up to par! But like you said, now you can go somewhere else and order it again ;)
    I personally loveeee sushi. I am a big fan of the raw kind simply served over rice- tuna, yellowtail, salmon, shrimp are among my favorites
    I also like getting my omega-3s in with walnuts! They are my favorite type of nut and tastes great in my morning cereal/oatmeal and sprinkled on top of a salad

  5. I've never had sushi before! It freaks me out haha! But I do eat lots of seafood and fish...gotta get those omega-3s! :)

  6. I had sushi for lunch and it tasted divine. Salmon avocado is without a doubt my fave. Great way to get my omega 3 and healthy fats fix! For veggies, chia seeds and flax seeds are ideal sources of omega 3s as they can be added to anything without altering the taste.

  7. I love sushi! I think I have it just about once a week. I love the tuna roll with brown rice, or this really fancy shmancy roll called the Manhattan Roll. Inside is shrimp and avocado, and on top of it is spicy tuna and sprinkled with tempura bits. Not that healthy but sometimes I like to just splurge. I also love the rainbow roll!

  8. I haven't had sushi in forever! My favorite is the avocado peanut roll at my favorite sushi place. It's an avocado roll with the addition of a honey roasted peanut. It's delicious!
    I didn't know all this info about essential fatty acids! I'm so glad you brought it to my attention. I immediately went to check the supplement that I take, and let out a sigh of relief when I saw that it does contain the types I need.

  9. Oh dear, now you reminded me that it's been too long since I had sushi, too...and too long since I had fish, for that matter! I usually prefer sashimi, but when it comes to sushi...the unauthentic baked sushi rolls are sooo good!

  11. I had sushi last week, after having stayed away for a very long time! I love tuna and avocado rolls, with extra wasabi! The restaurant's seaweed salad, however, had the texture of rubber bands. It was different, but not bad!

    I hope you don't mind, I've added you to my blogroll!
