I feel really blessed to have a supportive man – he always cares that I will be happy when we go out, and I know not everyone has that luxury.
“Just have what we are having!” people will say…
Well, NO…I don’t WANT that. I eat clean, and I’d like to maintain that when I go out. Believe it or not, NOT having that respect and support is a huge pressure for people living a fit lifestyle – in some cases it keeps us from going out.
When my hunnie and I go out for a meal, he’ll always make sure there is something I will like. It means a lot to have that kind of support, especially as it was always something I was worried about when I was single (you know, you never want to seem odd, or high maintenance, or too difficult, right?!)
So the other day he said “let’s go out!” and for our fun little “rendezvous” (the “date” word always felt so superficial and weird to me…soooo, we use “rendezvous!” 😉 ), we got some sushi. ❤
Sashimi salmon is a favorite of mine. I didn’t always have the taste for it, but after trying it with warm soy sauce, I was hooked.
- I actually will heat the soy sauce and leave the pieces in until they “cook” a tiny bit when I prepare it at home – it’s DELICIOUS!
- Add a few black sesame seeds and it’s totally “WOW.”
Cook sashimi? Kind of, YES. I feel more satisfied when it’s cooked a bit, interestingly! But either way, it’s light, choc full of good fats, and I feel great about my choices!
(Tons of sodium, of course, and wheat, in traditional soy sauce – make sure to go easy if those two are troublesome for you. Because I am so active, I have lower blood pressure, so the salt is a good thing in my case.)
