Pregnancy Approved Sushi

ushi is by far my favorite food of all time! I could eat it for every meal. The downside to this, is that when your pregnant, you're urged to not eat it as its often filled with raw fish which can be detrimental during your pregnancy. I've always wondered if there was a better way and recently my family was invited to a "make your own sushi roll" dinner with some friends and oh.my.goodness. My life has been forever changed for the better!! So, heres how to make pregnancy approved sushi at home!


You'll need:
Sushi rice
Cucumber
Celery
Avocado
Orange Pepper
Carrot
Cream Cheese
Roasted seaweed "sushi nori" wraps

Make your sushi rice (found in the asian aisle of most grocery stores) about 30 minutes before you plan to eat! Follow the instructions on the container for best results. 

While your rice is simmering peel and cut veggies into thin and long pieces. You want them to look a little like this!

Next you take out a seaweed wrap and put it on your plate. Be gentle as these wraps are fairly delicate and will rip! Spread (carefully!) sushi rice onto the wrap. You want the whole thing to be basically covered up, especially the corners as this is how the wraps gets held together.

Next you place the veggies and cream cheese straight down one side of the wrap. Put on as much as you'd like but remember that you want to be able to wrap the roll.
