Healthy Choices

  • Miso Soup
  • Su-udon (noodle soup)
  • Veggie or Shrimp kabobs
  • Steamed edamame (green soy beans)
  • Steamed rice
  • Domburi (rice, veggie and meat or poultry bowl)
  • Sashimi (raw fish)
  • Soba noodles with chicken or shellfish and veggies
  • Shrimp or chicken Sukiyaki (meat and veggie dish)
  • Sushi rolls with raw fish and/or veggies (wrapped in rice and/or seaweed)
  • Bean curd or tofu (not fried)
  • Teriyaki chicken
  • Shabu-Shabu (thinly sliced lean beef and veggies)
  • Cue words for less fat: nimono (simmered), yaki (broiled), yaki-mono (grilled)


  • Ask about healthy alternatives such as brown rice.
  • Fill up on fiber rich edamame or a side salad before dinner.  Sushi rolls can add up!
  • Tempura, agemono and katsu are fancy names for fried.
  • Skip sushi rolls that are made with creamy sauces or mayo.  If you’re not sure, ask.
  • Keep in mind that miso, soy sauce and teriyaki sauce are high in sodium.
