    Canned Sardines in Olive Oil

    Would canned sardines packed in olive oil be a great source of O-3? I just ate a can for the first time and I actually liked them. I thought they would have been really fishy tasting.

    Yes, they are very nutritious and cheap with it. Another plus point is that they are relatively low in toxins as they are not a top-feeding fish (cf tuna for example).

    they are a super food when you eat them with skin and bones. Just avoid the soybean oil ones. They taste so good because your body recognizes all of the awesome things in them I think.

    For sure those bones and thin skin slip down very easily.

    I have been eating 1-2 cans a day of either boneless, skinless or bone-in sardines in olive oil. HDL went from 23 to 49 in 6 months!

    Me to. I had them once in my life. After a night of heavy drinking. I was as pickled as they were.

    I tried sardines for the first time 2 months ago and I like them very much. I think they are less fishy tasting then tuna. I havent touched tuna since I started eating them. I think once you get past the look of them...yummmy! The first time I ate them I really did not look at the tin because of the whole mental thing that I am eating a fish with skin and bones. so far my favorite is the ones in olive oil!
