It’s that time of the year again people. That time that happens about once every two month. That time that I decide it’s time to eat healthy. That time that lasts exactly one recipe until I’m back to donuts & pop-tarts.

This time I’ve come up with homemade cucumber sushi. My mom & I were looking for something healthy yet tasty & satisfying. After a few modifications we’ve created the perfect summer meal for you to try! Best part? It really tastes exactly like sushi! Coming from a carboholic, I didn’t even miss the rice at all!
