Learn how to harness the natural flavour and health benefits of the Japanese diet, make stunning sushi and other naturally low-calorie meals in this beautifully designed and photographed book.
Research shows that the Japanese diet is one of the healthiest in the world: balanced, slimming, and packed with superfoods. Now you, too, can benefit from their wisdom. In Sushi Slim, using the latest scientific research, Makiko shows how eating Japanese food can help you get slim and stay slim. Once you begin to eat this way you’ll feel the kilos drop away.
There are calorie-counted meal plans to get you started, plus all the recipes are calorie-counted to help you maintain your perfect weight. Sushi is light, fun, supremely tasty and extraordinarily healthy, and with Makiko’s foolproof directions you’ll have no trouble putting together these delicious dishes. Makiko gives step-by-step instructions for cutting vegetables and fish, rolling basic hosomaki, with fillings such as a traditional tuna, or a more unusual bacon or asaparagus. You can graduate from these to the nigiri, California rolls, boat-shaped gunkan and easy DIY hand rolls.
Once you’ve mastered your sushi skills, the book will teach you much more besides. For a delicious portable lunch try Makiko’s beautiful 500 calorie Bento boxes – easy to put together from elements you’ve made and frozen earlier. And for the ultimate beauty booster learn how to make her extraordinary collagen soup, a Facelift in a Bowl. For everyday eating there are No CarbWrapWrapWrap and simple soups and salads. And for sharing with friends make up platters with her Sushi to Impress ideas. All the ingredients can be found in ordinary supermarkets and none of the dishes takes long to prepare.
Sushi Slim will also tell you what to eat to make your hair shine, your skin glow, how to get rid of wrinkles and make your nails strong and healthy – all things the Japanese have known for generations. It is both a one-stop resource to learn many of the secrets of Japanese diet and cookery and a new way of life, guaranteed to make you feel wonderful and stay slim.
