This is a new topic for The Nutritionist Reviews: sardines! Now hear me out! Sardines are a great source of nutrients which I will get into in a bit and they are be quite versatile like tuna or salmon. I made this fun dish of Mexican Sardine Salad Stuffed Avocados with sardines of course but you can also use tuna or salmon if you prefer.

I like sardines mashed or chopped best and if you like tuna, you will probably like sardines. They taste very similar, especially the variety that I used. I grew up eating not a ton of seafood but we did eat canned tuna at my grandma's house often. As I get older, I am trying to incorporate more seafood into my diet for the health benefits.

Sardines are a great source of nutrients and are a healthy food choice for these many reasons:

-High in protein
-Rich in omega-3 fatty acids- good for the brain, helping to prevent heart disease and more! One serving has 1300 mg of omega-3 fatty acids.
-An excellent source of vitamin B-12, selenium, phosphorus and vitamin D. Vitamin D is great for bone health!
-One serving of sardines has 35% of your daily calcium. That is about the same as in a glass of milk! Perfect for those who don't eat a ton of dairy.
-They are quite inexpensive.
-They are precooked meaning that you do not have to spend extra time cooking them. In fact, this whole recipe is no-cook!
-They can be kept in the pantry like canned salmon or tuna and are perfect for quick meals.
-Can be used a variety of ways: mashed in a salad, cooked into a casserole, on a sandwich, etc.

For this recipe, I used Season Brand sardines which is wild caught and certified sustainable. The can is BPA-free and non GMO project certified. They are a nutritious meal option that is quick and easy.

The avocado is a great source of healthy fats. They tomatoes, green onions and bell peppers give you a boost of vitamins. The lime juice helps to counteract any fishiness from the sardines and gives it a delicious tangy flavor.
