Sardines were one of the first animal foods we introduced to our diet when we went from vegan to omnivore late in 2012.
At the time, we weren’t ready to have other fish because we wanted to research mercury, toxins, etc. But, we wanted some fish. Our best bet: sardines because of their low-trophic level and superior nutrition. Some in the paleo world call them a superfood.
Did I like sardines?
Well, honestly they skeeved me out a bit. I used to love tuna fish back when I was young, but sardines were a whole new ball of wax, coming with skin, bones and all. Yeah, they were the kind of thing my step-dad ate and I used to think, “Ewww, dude, you’re gross.”
