"This is a low-fat item that, because of the white rice, will keep you satisfied," says Johnson. The pieces with salmon or tuna inside deliver those coveted omega-3s, but even the fishless variety contains a healthy slice of cucumber or other veggie. The seaweed that hugs the rice, called nori, also packs a nutritious punch, as it contains minerals from the sea. Just make sure the sushi at the party is the freshest possible -- take a pass if it's been sitting out since you walked in. Also steer clear if the pieces are fried (tempura) or contain cream cheese.
