A longtime staple of the Hawaiian Islands, the poke bowl has single-handedly changed the way we think of fast food and its attributes. With the ability to be prepared quicker than a burger and with the healthy contents that our bodies need to get through a day in one piece, the poke bowl is the perfect alternative to the grease and fat that so many of us have fallen victim to. But what exactly are these healthy attributes? How do we benefit from them? Let’s find out.
Good For the Heart
Two staples that you’ll find prevalent in many poke bowls are tuna and salmon. Both of these are high in Omega 3’s, which are fatty acids that promote heart health and actually assist in maintaining your mental health. (That’s why fish is called brain food.) The American Heart Association recommends two to three servings of fish a week to keep your heart in good shape, and the poke bowl is the perfect way to get them.
Custom Built Health
One of the reasons why so many people end up eating fast food is that it’s quick and convenient. In this day and age where we can obtain it through the click of an app, the temptation has never been stronger to take an easy road. The poke bowl is the customizable alternative that’s just as quick and convenient, but with a fraction of the calories and the fuel our bodies need to sustain themselves.
The average poke bowl has a calorie count of 400-500. That’s for the entire bowl, rice, protein, mix-ins, and sauces all combined. The same amount of calories, even more, can be found in one single slice of pizza or one cheeseburger from popular fast-food chains. Partaking in poke will fill you up with the nutrients you need without any of the grease, fat, and preservatives that you don’t.
Now more than ever, people are choosing to abstain from products that contain gluten. If you’re one of these people, then the poke bowl will soon become your new best friend. If you frequent an establishment such as Island Fin Poke, you’ll be in luck, because our soy sauces are free of gluten, and make a good one-two combo with our rice which is naturally gluten-free.
