Sushi is one of my favorite foods. I’ll say straight up that I’m not too terribly versed in traditional and cultural practices of sushi. I just eat it.
I know I prefer nigiri over sashimi. I also know I prefer salmon nigiri over tuna. I’m just beginning to learn the various hand and maki rolls. I’ve scratched the surface of discovering sushi just enough to know that there”s much more to learn. That might be one of the reasons I enjoy it so much: there are so many varieties and options available. I don’t understand why people don’t like sushi! (Ok, ok, I can see how uncooked fish is not for everyone; for example, my cousin is allergic to fish.)
Sushi is definitely one of the foods that deserves mindful eating. Sushi is meant to be enjoyed.
Mindful eating (i.e., paying attention to our food, on purpose, moment by moment, without judgment) is an approach to food that focuses on individuals’ sensual awareness of the food and their experience of the food.Nelson J.
