  • Sardines?

    Am I becoming more primal if I now love and crave sardines straight outta the can?
    OMGsh who knew?! Seriously, they're like fish candy. What the heck is happening to me?!
    It's kinda weird and embarassing, but still good. Gotta go use some mouth wash....

    Haha. I'm with you. I eat a can 4-5 days a week. Usually straight, sometimes with mustard.

      You are talking about my candy. Sardines, anchovies (great but salty), kippers, mussels, oysters. Even tuna and salmon. I always have loads of personal sized cans of that stuff in my pantry for in between or, more often, instead of, the regular un-canned fish and meat. NB I skip a lot of meals.

      Tell you another secret. For years, I have been buying select sea food in bait shops. Calamari is calamari. If it is big it tastes the same as if it is small (like bait). Saves a lot of money and I actually like it.

      Sometimes I think of opening a sashima and bait shop out by the lake.

        I was at a conference today and skipped breakfast & lunch. I came home and had some cottage cheese, followed by a can of kipper snacks and just now had a can of sardines in olive oil as my evening snack. Now that I can't use whole wheat bread to sop up the oil, I've resorted to drinking the oil from the can.

        My dirty little secret: My wife HATES sardines and the smell of sardines. When my daughter was about 2 years old, I got her eating and loving sardines with me. Twenty six years later and I think she has finally forgiven me.

          I tried a can of sardines pre-workout the other day. I'm not sure I'll do it again - at least not without a LOT of mouthwash between the sardines and the workout.

            LOL david! I started my kids on artichokes when they were young. My husband scratches his head at their weird tastebuds.

              A note to the parents of little ones...

              If you want to encourage them to eat weird things, eat it in front of them, exclaiming to each other how yummy it is...When they ask for some, tell them that they are :robably:: too young to have grown the taste buds to love it. And, explain that these grow in gradually, so they can try it soon.

              Then, leave some of the tasty tidbits laying around, and say absolutely nothing about it. Rinse and repeat, never asking them to try a bite.

              Eventually, they will be eager to test to see if their taste buds have grown in enough to see what you all are loving so much.

                        I love sardines, but I have gotten picky about country of origin. The best tasting sardines are from Italy/Portugal/Spain. I buy the Angelo Parodi brand at Whole Foods for about $3.50 a can. Expensive, but oh so yummy.

                          This is exactly how I got my kids to eat weird stuff. I kept telling them they would not like it and that I did not want to waste it on them till they got older and could appreciate it.

                            I'm in Spain! Sardines come as cheap as 50 cents a can

                              Love it! I do the elitist thing with my kids, too. I eat because I love the taste of food! No point in wasting $$ on bland food unless I'm starving or short on cash. They can eat the bland stuff if they wish.
