CNN, Healthline, Condé Nast Traveller, the BBC (and the list goes on) all list Japanese cuisine as one of the healthiest in the world. It contains little sugar, few processed ingredients and includes plenty of fish.
And not only is it healthy, it's delicious! In fact, after France, Japanese restaurants have the most Michelin stars. So, they must be doing something right!
So if you're often ordering in pizza or burgers for your office catering and want a more balanced diet, consider adding Japanese to the menu.
So much more than just sushi rolls, Japanese food is actually super varied. Other staples you'll find on. most Japanese catering menus also include ramens and udons, curries, marinated meats and vegetables served with rice, stir-fried noodles and plenty more.
Even better - it's an incredibly versatile cuisine that's easily adaptable for anyone's needs. Whether you're needing to keep things vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian or dairy-free there's something to eat for everyone on a Japanese menu.
Rice is naturally gluten-free, so most rice dishes will be safe for coeliacs. However, soy sauces do often contain gluten, so make sure you're not serving anything that's been marinated or dipped in soy sauce. You can get gluten-free sauces, though, so no one has to miss out on flavour or eat dry sushi platters.
If rice isn't your thing, pure soba noodles are gluten-free as they are made from buckwheat. Other noodles, including udon, do contain gluten.
Very little Japanese cuisine contains dairy, so luckily dairy-free guests are easy ones to cater for. One occasion to watch out for here, is cream cheese in sushi rolls. While traditional Japanese restaurants likely won't have this menu item, many sushi restaurants to.
Vegans and vegetarians certainly won't be going hungry! Tofu and other soy products are very common on Japanese menus and are often used to replace animal products on sushi platters, in soups and other dishes. If you're an eggplant fan, miso eggplant is also a great alternative to meat in Japanese dishes like donburi.
Tired of cheese boards and party pies? Try some small bites of Japanese food as an alternative to canapés and grazing boards.
