Sardines are such an easy way to get healthy fats into you. I like to keep a bunch of sardine tins on hand for those days I know I am short for time. They are also a great source of quality protein to add to work or travel lunches. I always opt for wild caught and sustainable fish to ensure I do not get a hefty dose of unwanted, inflammatory heavy metals and that I do my bit to protect our seas. Learn more about healthy fats and why they are so amazing for colon health (as well as heart and brain) in this article.
1 can sardines (I use around 120g of sustainable fish sardines such as the brands Fish 4 Ever or Good Fish)
½ capsicum, (yellow, green or red) chopped roughly
4 cherry tomatoes
½ cup mixture of leaves (rocket, baby spinach and cos)
1 tbsp or more chopped red onion
4 sun dried tomatoes (I use those that are not marinated in vegetable oil such as Absolute Organics)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp organic extra virgin olive oil
¼ tsp Himalayan salt
½ tsp ground fennel powder (or insert favourite herb and spice)
½ tsp ground cardamom (or insert favourite herb and spice)
Throw all ingredients together into a large bowl.
Toss well to combine all of the fabulous seasonings and enjoy...preferably somewhere outdoors with feet planted in lush green grass and away from technology. 🙂
