    Sardines

    Ive read on some paleo blogs recently about eating sardines... And eating frequently. I'm not really familiar with them, but they are cheap and easy... Are sardines a good eating option and how do you guys eat them? Plain? On foods? In oil or water? Does quality/ brand matter? Thanks for the help!

    I think sardines are good. But it should not be eaten frequently because of their preservatives.

    What preservatives?

    Ingredients: Sardines, water. Good to go. A little salt is fine, too. Sometimes you can find it with olive oil - but I don't know if it's real olive oil or counterfeit...

    I love sardines. I buy mine from costco, and they are nearly twice the price has cheap sardines from grocery stores. However, they are well over twice as tasty and leave me feeling good and satisfied. Keep in mind that they are cooked and stored in cans. Don't make them a daily staple because of the BPA hazards, but don't be afraid to eat them occasionally. The ones I buy are in extra virgin olive oil and I find them to be delicious. Avoid sardines packed in junk like soy bean oil. According to the can, each serving of the sardines provides 1.3 grams of omega 3...

    Thanks for the replies! Does anyone recommend expensive sardines? I saw ones at the seafood counter at Whole Foods for about $8 pack, but they're only about $3 a can.

    The fresh ones are much, much tastier than the tinned, and taste 'healthier' IMO. So I recommend you treat yourself on a special occasion. They're great baked in the oven Mediterranean style in a marinade of olive oil, lemon, fresh chilli, garlic, onion, and fresh parsley.

    And they are also yummy eaten cold as leftovers the following day in a salad.

    ETA: Generally, I think sardines are a great healthy, affordable choice of oily fish. They don't accumulate so many toxins as larger top-feeding fish.

    I guess I wasn't really aware of the BPA hazard from canned sardines. I've been eating a can per day of the Wild Ocean brand. Maybe I should just start eating wild Alaskan salmon every day.

    The BPA issue is with any canned food, not just sardines, so if the alaskan salmon is canned it's got the same issue.

    I love sardines. Ironically, I just sat down with a sardine salad (like tuna salad, but sardines) for lunch before I read this post The ones with bones and skin in oil are good but sometimes I just want the boneless, skinless ones packed in water. They taste a lot like tuna.

    They're a good source of omega 3 and like someone else said, they are low on the food chain so don't have as much mercury (and whatever else) as the larger fish do.

    Yeah, I don't like the canned salmon. I get salmon in a frozen bag. Just going to have to do more cooking I guess.
