Love the idea of fresh and healthy home-made sushi for dinner…but HATE the tedious time and effort necessary to turn said brilliant idea into reality?
As it turns out, laziness breeds destruction AND creation. Deconstruct your fav sushi roll, toss it into a salad bowl and POOF – you’ve created an entirely new weight-loss meal masterpiece that’s gorgeous to look at, amazingly delicious, oh-so nutritious and incredibly filling! Fifteen minutes and you’re a grand master sushi chef! You’ll never want to go back to eating regular sushi rolls again…
…unless someone else is making them for you, that is…
