    I would eat the entire can in one go. But I would also eat other stuff, like pickled herring, salmon, barramundi... whatever floats your boat. Mmm, sardines. I'd say I eat a can or two a week.

    Thanks everyone. Had 1/2 can last night and 1/2 this morning with breakfast. My 2 year old had some too mixed with avocado on the side with his eggs. Wife is not feeling well and everything is making her feel sick so she is going to hold off until she can stomach the sardines! HA!!!

    Anyone know if the Trader Joes cans are BPA free? Also, the only reason I got the ones in water is I am more concerned about the olive oil used than the water used.

    x2 on water! I can't trust the words "olive oil" anymore. I automatically assume it's made of soybean oil or corn oil.

    Also, my wife is pregnant right now. I'm wondering if we should be concerned with that.
    I eat a 5.5 oz can of mackerel about 4x per week. I like it better than sardines. I never ate them before I went primal, but they are such a cheap and convenient source of protein, and when I fist started eating them I felt energized. I'm not sure what the guidelines are for pregnant women, I would poke around on the internet to check that out.
    As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again.

    Eliminating sardines and all oily fish has helped me a lot. No more blood sugar problems or fatigue. But I suppose "moderation" is better for most people. (I ate "primally" throughout the 2000s. So glad that is over!)

    I pretty much gave up sardines when buying them in bpa-free cans cost almost as much as buying whole salmon (the per pound price). But before that I was eating at least 12 cans per month and I eat lox on a regular basis. I haven't had pickled herring in awhile, so that will be a treat next time I venture out to a grocery store. I like mixing it up a bit. Fish has always been a part of my diet, so Primal just meant eating it a bit more.

    One thing you'll never hear me say is, "Damn, there's just too much seafood in my diet."

    King Oscar uses BPA free tins. They don't advertise it much for some reason, but they do have a section on their website and the question is frequently asked and answered on their Facebook page:

    Thank you! They even sell canned cod liver in its own oil. That would be something for the 52 new things in 2013 list.
