We spend a lot of time focusing on health and nutrition at Island Fin Poké. In our opinion, it’s hard to make one that isn’t healthy, but we still want to offer some advice for making the optimal poké bowl. Regardless of your dietary needs or preferences, our menu items will give you the peace of mind of knowing you ate something that fuels your body most nutritiously.
Choose the Best Base Component
The base ingredient is what you select first when you come to Island Fin Poké. There are three choices: spring mix, brown rice, and white rice. Our friends who do the Keto diet are more likely to select spring mix or possibly a small volume of brown rice.
Grab Some Good Protein
The best part of the poké bowl is the protein. When the first Hawaiian fishermen invented poké, they did it by cutting up chunks of tuna or salmon, before pairing it with things like seaweed. Our protein options include tuna and salmon, along with shrimp or octopus. If you don’t care for seafood, you can make yours with chicken or tofu. Either way, it’s a great way to get sufficient protein for firm muscles, healthy bones, and without all the dubious preservatives.
Enjoy Fresh Toppings & Sauces
There are plenty of fruits, veggies, nuts, and other toppings to draw out the flavor of the protein portions. You can make it spicy with jalapenos or Island Fin Fire Sauce, or keep it lightly sweet with mango, pineapple, and other fresh fruits. We also have over 20 finer toppings such as crispy garlic, chili oil, sea salt, wasabi peas, wonton, and tempura crisps.
Check Everything with a Nutritional Calculator
We serve our health-conscious clientele many ways, but one of our patron favorites is the nutritional calculator you can find on our website. This puts all the nutritional facts at your fingertips no matter which way you fashion your poké bowl. It’ll tell you the total calories, sodium, carbohydrates, fats, sugar, protein, and other pertinent information.
Those are the simple steps for creating a healthy poké bowl. It’s remarkably easy, and we promise you’ll enjoy every bite of this novel Hawaiian dish.
