I started loving the sardines b/c they go on crackers, and they are tinned fish. you can say canned fish, but tinned fish is much more exotic and dare I say classy.
and then I realized there are lots of thinking-person reasons to eat sardines, you know, reasons that do not rely on gut level preconceived notions of what is classy or not. and they include:
- sardines are on the list of ecobest fish!
- they are high in calcium
- they are full of magical omega-3’s
- and are so loaded with other fancy things like b 12 that they may also be a worlds healthiest food.
- AND, their secret name may be PILCHARD. Aw.
The only thing that I do NOT love about sardines is that I can’t bring them to work for lunch. they are not an office-friendly food. sad!
