    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?
    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.

    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...
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    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.

    These - Products: Bela Sardines
    The cayenne ones are now a staple in our house. If I by them by the case from my co-op they're like $2.60 a can. The oil is good on salad.

    I'm in NW WA and my local co-op has them. I bet if you emailed the company they could supply you with a list or even set you up wholesale. They are the best sardines ever, and we taste tested plenty.

    Crown Prince sardines in olive oil are now in BPA-free cans in the U.S. (the new ones on the shelves say BPA-free on the front of the packaging). Really easy brand to find in the stores. I'm a believer in supporting the brands that are making the switch-over to BPA-free.
