Don't feel silly! It took me a while to realize I had to select that.

You should be able to find it on the food tracker because other people have entered it. If you input "eel cucumber roll" and select "search foods shared by other members" then there are several entries for it.

Does the rice on sushi really add up to that much?

I've changed my mind and I'm going to get the eel and cucumber roll instead of avocado to cut down on the fat and I'm just trying to figure out if I can go to Starbucks for some much needed coffee. I don't think our sushi place puts that much rice on their sushi, and I'm only getting the eel and cucumber rolls and some vegetable rolls. The only thing cooked I'll be eating is the eel. I can't even track nori on the food tracker on here.

This is really frustrating. Sushi was the one thing I was really looking forward to not have to give up and I can't figure this out.

Oh, I never thought about brown rice! I'll give that a try tonight!

I'm sure eel is pretty low fat and healthy as far as protein goes. My concern when I eat sushi is how much rice I'm eating and how much sodium since I dip each roll into a combination of soy sauce and wasabi. Yummy. BUT, an occasional treat definitely. I'm sure getting an accurate calorie count on sushi is pretty difficult since most places don't offer nutritional breakdown menus and each place differs how they prepare each roll and how much rice is in each order. To make it a little better, see if your favorite place can substitute brown rice in the rolls. I had my favorite made with brown rice the other day and it was just as yummy!

My favorite sushi roll is eel and avocado. This comes wrapped in nori (seaweed), rice, and topped with an eel sauce.

Usually I'll get this and vegetable rolls, which are no doubt insanely healthy, but is my favorite sushi roll healthy or will I be doomed to only getting it once in a while?

By the way, I've already cut miso soup out when we order Japanese since it's ridiculously salty, although I might start making it myself.
