I’m not one for food rules, but one rule that I do have for myself is to eat a tin of sardines each week. I should eat them twice a week! I keep forgetting though. You know how the experts say you’ll eat what you can see (i.e. the fruit bowl?) Maybe I need a fruit bowl of sardine tins on my countertop.
So in an effort to get more omega-3s, calcium and vitamin D in my life, I decided to try a new kind of oatmeal. Hear me out on this one – at first glance it seems like a terrible idea but it’s actually a delicious twist on savory oats!
These sardines are slightly sweet from the maple syrup and the smokiness gives them a great sweet/savory flavor. If I can do egg and avocado on oatmeal or goat cheese and balsamic, then what’s the difference in this and fish served over risotto for dinner?
I ended up mashing the sardines in along with a little almond butter. This kept me full for SIX hours. How is that for a powerhouse breakfast.
Served with a cup of joe. I also ended up pouring a little of the leftover juice into my frothed coffee – mmmm fishy!
