Just a quick update, it's funny how sometimes when you have decided to allow yourself to go "off plan" the world conspires so that you don't! I have been craving sushi lately, probably because there's been several occasions in the last few weeks that during functions its been eaten around me and I have politely declined. There had been tons of noodles, tempura a and dumplings but I don't really crave those lol yay me!
I decided today, that I was going to get some sushi and eat just enough to satisfy my cravings and not break my calorie bank. I decided against going to a restaurant because I know I would be more likely to have less control. Instead, I would get a small tray from my favorite grocery store. We have always had great sushi made fresh there and I figured this would be the most controlled way for me to do it.
So after running all my errands, I drove there with a plan: Double check nutrition, make the "best" choice nutrition wise and allow myself the treat at home. Imagine my surprise when I found out that the sushi guy quit last week! I had to chuckle at the fact that they, for the first time since they opened, had absolutely no sushi! It's like the world didn't want me to eat that sodium and rice I don't need anyway!
Would eating sushi be the end of the world? Nope, especially in the controlled way I was planning to have it. However, the more I think about it, I realize that rice is something I no longer include in my diet so why would I deviate from that? All that sodium would have also caused water retention which I don't need showing up on the scale! If I were so inclined, I guess I could make a more plan friendly option using avocado/cauliflower rice instead of regular rice and coconut aminos instead of soy sauce but it's not that important lol that's too much work and hassle ;)
In the end I was glad it didn't work out and decided that it was probably for the best. I made a run through the produce aisles instead. I ended up leaving with a bunch of fresh veggies to make a big salad and some avocados that I filled up with tuna. It ended up being an even better treat! Thank you world!
