    Anyone have a good bachelor level (like 1 step lol) to up my sardines in water game. It can be hard to eat sometimes. haha.

    I dunno. Blend it and put it on some sort of cucumbers?

    I dunno.

    I find the ones in olive oil to be much more palatable. Found a bunch of these at a discount store recently and stocked up!

    If not already spiced I add sriracha or curry powder, and chopped garlic if not in a hurry. My favorite way to eat them when I was getting accustomed to the flavor was to just dump the can right next to a pile of sausage and eggs, and mix in little bites.

    If you can get any of the brands produced right in Spain/Portugal/Morocco they are usually a bit better too. (Or maybe they just soothe my cravings for the exotic. :rofl:)

    That may work if it really is a pile.
    I ate very little.
    Do not eat sardines but struggle with the cod liver.

    To be clear, being slim and in-shape is not the same as a calorie restricted diet.

    A 6 foot man could consistently weigh 145 lbs, consistently have 6% body fat, and still be eating a diet which is the complete opposite of CR. So don’t confuse being skinny as being on a CR-like diet.

    What is AMPK?

    You could try adding an infused balsamic vinegar. The better tasting ones are more expensive.

    The Petit Navire filets without oil or water are very good. They are from France and I found them in a specialty shop.

    I make sardine wraps:
    • Gather some large romaine or Boston lettuce leaves (or kale, if you like it)
    • Slather on mustard or spicy kimchi sriracha (Wildbrine makes a good one)
    • Sprinkle on paper-thin red onion slices (+ any veggie you like, such as shaved carrots, beets, endive ...)
    • Add sardine(s)
    • Drizzle with olive oil (definitely going to try balsamic vinegar tomorrow!)
    • Roll up and eat
    • YUM
    I prefer the tiny sardines, such as from King Oscar. The ones that Trader Joe's sells (Beachcliff, I think) are
    H U M O N G O U S.

    I also buy fish in spring water. I worry that the olive oil listed on the package isn't really olive oil. So I add my own. That way I can give my cat the fish water, and everyone is happy.

    $0.99 for King Oscar is a steal! I'd have ransacked that entire shelf.

    Stores charge close to $3 per tin up here. Even in bulk, the cheapest I can find is $2.39. And I eat 2 tins for my BAB.

    hahahaha.... just wanted to suggest you make a smoothie!! Hold your nose and just get it down. And then I see this...LOL

    Yeah... raw whole sardine smoothie is hard core but it makes you feel awesome :) :)

    I did indeed get ALL the King Oscars. I have a bit of a food hoarding problem, but at least now instead of carbs it’s tinned fish, some low-carb veg like olives and roasted peppers, oils, vinegars, and spices. Good lord the spices. And teas...

    Oh, and this brand is really good too...I used to get it delivered in bulk before I found the motherload of good sardines.

    I'll have to give those herrings a try. I've made many a batch of linguini with white clam sauce using Bar Harbor's chopped clams ... back when I used to eat gluten, that is.

    I do "gentle stockpiling," too, when I find a good price. My skipjack tuna supply is Armageddon ready, and the sardine shelf (yes, it has its own shelf) barely gets dented before I feel compelled to replenish. Today I tried Whole Foods 365 brand of tinned sockeye salmon, bones and skin and all. I'll definitely buy that again.

    My last great hurdle is finding shucked oysters. I'm not quite ready for fish head smoothies (sounds like a shoegazer band name), though I wouldn't mind looking as healthy as Inger.

    I get Vital choice Sardines in olive oil through Mercolas site because they are cheaper than the actual site. I like the taste of those ones better than any other I've tried. I eat them strait or mashed up with mayo. I love them

    Costco usually sells a bottle of shucked oysters. I recently tried a can of smoked shucked oysters and I dont know, It didn't taste bad, but it was just weird to me. I think it was just the thought of canned oysters that grossed me out, and the fact that they tasted very smoky, Nothing beats raw oysters though. Everytime I have raw oysters I always feel ready to get it on with my girlfriend. That doesn't happen when I steam them or pan cook them, It's very weird.

    They have damn near a 5 year expiration date. If you eat only 2 cans a week then you're eating 104 cans per year.

    If you keep a stack of that many on hand and properly shuffle through them in order then in the event of severe weather or emergency you've got a whopping 30 days worth of 3 meals a day for super cheap.

    I think my only recourse is to learn how to shuck. I can get fresh oysters all over the place, I just can't find local, nekkid bad boys, all a-quiver and nestled in a pint container.
