Is Poke Healthy?

Is Poke healthy? The short answer is a resounding YES! Of course, we’d like to vouch for such an exclamation by showing just why that’s the case.

Island Fin Poke, exemplars of everything Poke, provides the following excellent reasons to include Poke as part of your nutritional regimen.

Why Poke Is Very Healthy

Poke has many similarities with sushi, another healthy seafood dish, but the former is served in a bowl with arguably even more seasoning and adornment options. There are tons of indisputably healthy ingredients all over our Poke menu:

  • Cucumber
  • Mango
  • Pineapple
  • Shrimp
  • Avocado
  • Edamame
  • Og Veggies
  • Crispy Garlic
  • Furikake
  • Seaweed Salad
  • . . . and much more!

Like anything else, you could potentially insert less healthy ingredients, but Island Fin Poke chooses not to do this because we can deliver a savory and satiating meal without cheapening the experience or compromising your health.

Biggest Health Benefits

We would be remiss not to acknowledge these two critical health components as they relate to Poke consumption.

  • Poke = Super Heart Healthy
    • The healthy seafood ingredients (tuna, salmon, octopus, mahi-mahi, etc.) do so much to preserve heart health. Fish is very rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are considered extremely helpful in lowering blood pressure and generating better circulation.
  • Lots of Leafy Greens & Other Veggies
    • We all know leafy greens and vegetables are critical dietary components. While we love Poke for its protein and good cholesterol, it’s also nice to have veggies to balance the equation. Their main function is to clean your digestive tract with fiber and antioxidants. Plus, with all our sauce and seasoning options (Wicked Wahine, Wasabi, Jamaican Cream, etc.), you’ll never need to endure bland or uninspiring veggies again. The goal is to eat healthily and enjoy it all the while.
