Calling all sushi lovers!
If you love sushi but want something a little more low-carb, try these Nori Sushi Wraps! They’re paleo, whole30, gluten-free and delicious!
It’s Menopause May! In line with our theme this month, Nori (dried seaweed) contains macronutrients, micronutrients and bioactive components that are suggested to be beneficial for women’s health. The high concentrations of iodine found in dried seaweed (especially Wakame and Kombu seaweed varieties) have been suggested to support thyroid function.
Some symptoms associated with perimenopause and menopause can be attributed to a decrease in thyroid function, therefore, supplementing your diet with iodine-rich foods may help ease pesky symptoms such as hot flashes and mood swings.
Apart from the excellent nutrient profile, these Nori wraps are simple to make and easy to pack for on-the-go lunches. It’s also easily customizable to fit your food preferences – don’t like tuna? Try smoked salmon or canned salmon!
Give it a try today!
4 toasted nori sheets
5 oz canned tuna in olive oil, slightly drained and mashed
1-2 whole mini cucumbers, thinly sliced to rounds
2 whole boiled eggs, sliced to rounds
1 whole avocado, thinly sliced
Sriracha, Frank’s red hot sauce, mayo (optional)
Prepare all your ingredients before taking out the nori sheets. Use 2 sheets per wrap. Gently fold them twice to make 4 square marks. Cut a slit to the middle of the nori sheets.
Add the food, starting from the bottom left corner and clockwise, with avocado, cucumber, canned tuna, and boiled eggs. Place the food in an even layer and try not to overload it. Add the sriracha, mayo and furikake, if using, on top of the tuna.
Carefully lift the bottom left corner to fold the avocado over the cucumber and press gently to help them adhere.
Fold the top left corner to top right corner.
Then fold again to get one square shape wrap.
Eat them right away and here’s how – with a tray under, carefully lift the wrap up with two hands and take a big bite! It might get a bit messy as some items might fall out…just like when you eat tacos, but it won’t affect the taste! Have fun and enjoy!
