I love seafood. I like a fresh catch as well as the store-bought version in the can. This morning, I consumed a tasty and delicious serving of canned sardines in olive oil. Based on nutrition facts, sardines are loaded with beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, protein and other nutrients that good for the body.

Call me a tad ‘nutty’; but, sometimes I like to warm my canned sardines. And, that’s what I did this morning. In a hot skillet, a drizzle of olive oil was added. Sliced onions were softened and then sardines were added under low heat. A sprinkle of black pepper was also added. And, because seafood craves acid, I drizzled a little vinegar and a squeeze of fresh lemon.

I paired my warmed sardines with a serving of tomatoes and nature’s butter (avocado). I couldn’t resist; I love a little sweet taste accompanying my savory sardines. Thus, I had a few pieces of rye toast covered with a spread of strawberry jam. I was in heaven!

Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
