The no BS guide to picking healthier sushi options 🍣

To: Daily Rundown Readers

Good morning!

New year, new you, right? Well, at least that’s what I’m seeing every time I open up my Facebook feed. And part of that “new you” could very well be eating a little healthier.

I’m not the biggest cheerleader when it comes to sushi. My wife cannot breathe without sushi so it’s somewhat of a regular menu item for us when planning to pick up something to eat.

Soi Bistro in Fort Walton Beach is one of our favorite places to eat. We normally make it there during lunch because their beef bulgogi bowl is one of my favorite dishes. My wife…goes for the sushi! 🍣

But even though it’s a “new year, new you”, you might be wanting to still give into your cravings and pay a visit to Soi for a couple of rolls. Fear not, we have a pretty awesome guide for eating healthy(ish) at Soi Bistro.

There’s no need to turn down the invitation OR to go overboard on heavy food. There are a ton of lighter options that won’t leave you feeling overstuffed when you leave.

Steven Menchel will fill former City Councilman Tuffy Dixon’s seat until March 18, according to The Destin Log.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Councilwoman Prebble Ramswell made the motion for Menchel to serve in the interim role.
  • He was approved with a 5-0 vote.
  • Dixon resigned in December saying he was tired of the city’s contentious politics.
  • Menchel has lived in Destin for 11 years.
  • A special election will be held on March 12 for voters to choose a candidate who will serve the final year of Dixon’s unexpired, second four-year term.

Speaking of candidates…Shoo-ins will fill most local ballots in the next election

According to the Northwest Florida Daily News, while six of Okaloosa County’s nine municipalities will hold a municipal election on March 12, most of the candidates automatically will win a seat on or be re-elected to local governing boards because they have no competitors.

The elections for the town of Cinco Bayou, the cities of Crestview, Destin, Fort Walton Beach and Laurel Hill, and the town of Shalimar are at-large and nonpartisan. New mayors will be seated in Crestview and Shalimar, where the current longtime mayors are not seeking re-election.
