Ever since I was a baby, I hated chewing even milk. After my eating disorder, the act of chewing made it harder for me to swallow and eat. In my mind, I was doing the math of the number of calories doing into my mind. When I get days like that, sushi is my go-to food since it can be eaten in a bite or two. I was curious to see what I’m eating nutrient wise.

Did you know that the sun isn’t the only source of vitamin D? you heard me right; fish is among the few foods that have it too. I’m saying this because even if Malta has sunny days all year long, I still had a vitamin D deficiency. I’m always embarrassed about how a few minutes in the sun can make me really sick as if I was in a real fire. Let’s not forget that some fish contains omega-3 fats, which your brain and body need to function correctly.

I like spicy food, but the one time I tried, I swore I would never again. Did you know that wasabi comes from the same family as a cabbage? Since it is made from the grated stem of Eutrema japonicum. Nutrition-wise it is rich in beta carotene, glucosinolates, and isothiocyanates. However, due to the wasabi plant’s scarcity, many restaurants use imitation paste which changes the nutrient content.

  1. ginger can also ease tummy aches, and you can chew on fresh ginger to help ease a toothache. One plant I plan on putting in one of my gardens is ginger.
    thanks for sharing the nutritional values, even though I don’t particularly like sushi – it was a good read!
