Whole30 Sushi Burrito
I am on Whole30 day 28 and feeling amazing. Even though I am on vacation and would usually indulge in this scenario, I have not been tempted to stray from Whole30 compliant foods. I guess the tiger blood is a real thing, but I also think eating fun and compliant foods like this Whole30 sushi burritos have kept me on track.
During the first 10 days of the Whole30 I was easily tempted by non compliant foods. So at the start I needed to keep. foods fun and interesting so that I would chose them over the non Whole30 options. This Whole30 sushi burrito got me through some tough days of cravings.
I developed this Whole30 sushi burrito to help with some intense sushi cravings that I was having. It has all of the components of sushi without any of the non compliant ingredients! The best part about this sushi burrito is that you can make it with any of your favorite sushi ingredients!

It is important to note what to look out for when selecting seafood for your sushi burrito. if you are going to have it raw, you will want to look for sushi grade fish, but the truth is that the term sushi grade is not regulated.
So what you are really looking for is any raw fish that is very fresh and very high quality. Otherwise your seafood will taste “fishy” and that’s not ideal. If you aren’t sure how to find this check out a local farmers market, seafood market or just talk to the people at the seafood counter in your local supermarket.
I talked to the workers at the seafood counter at my Whole Foods and he pointed me in the direction of some salmon that wasn’t technically sushi grade, BUT was never frozen and had just come in that day. It tasted incredible raw!!
If you are looking to go the budget friendly route, buy frozen shrimp at the store. Then let the shrimp defrost, steam them and chop them up. Its much more affordable and tastes great in the spicy mayo mix.
