a simple lunch

Sardines.  Yes I know most of you are thinking ewwww.  But honest, sardines are a very quick and flavorful lunch.  I simply drain the water, mash them lightly with generous amounts of fresh lemon juice, sea salt, fresh ground black pepper and whatever herbs I might have around.  Then I spoon the mixture onto my favorite crispy rice crackers .

Sardines are loaded with omega-3 fats.  Omega-3s help with mood, thinking, circulation, and glucose and insulin metabolism; they lower blood pressure; and they protect against heart disease.  Plus they are loaded with calcium!  Sardines also contain iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, zinc, copper and manganese, plus B vitamins.  And because sardines are real low on the marine food chain, toxins like mercury don't accumulate in them.


  1. Well it's one of my quick favs :) thanks

  2. Looks so good. I like the useful information you has written about sardines. Thank you.
