Sardines are small but mighty, the American Macular Degeneration Foundation will tell you. With their omega 3 fatty acids and loads of vitamin D, they’re giants in the world of people who want to reduce the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration.
For a simple snack, try smearing cream cheese on a cracker and topping them with a sardine. Far a more filling luncheon, try this recipe for Sardine Sandwiches. You might find you like the little critter. It’s one of many unusual recipes you’ll find in the Foundation’s recipe book for better sight.
Toast 4 slices of whole grain bread, and spread two of the slices with whole grain Dijon mustard. Divide the sardines from one can evenly, layering them atop the mustard. Add 1 medium sliced tomato, two chopped scallions, and some freshly ground pepper. Spread the other two slices of bread with more mayonnaise, close them up and voila! Two Sardine Sandwiches fit for healthy eyes!
