Sardines: The New On-the-Go Snack

image

Sardines are known for preventing certain types of cancers, age-related macular degeneration, and heart disease. Talk about kicking butt and taking names! Step aside, western medicine. There’s a new kid in town!

These silver, oily friends contain vitamins such as B12, A, D, E, K, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, and folate. Sardines have high levels of omega 3 fatty acids that help build the immune system. They are also beneficial for lubricating joints and strengthening bones. Lots of calcium!

So before you walk past them, cringing in disgust, give these guys a try! I enjoy them on a veggie salad with ginger sesame dressing or alone with a side of mustard dip and a handful of crackers. Grilled sardines with a Gouda cheese spread makes a hearty lunch too!
