Breinvoedselkonferensie - Resepte

U het dit moontlik al voorheen gehoor.

En ons by NeuroTrition stem heeltemal saam.

Die gedagte aan "vis" kan visioene van 'n perfek gegrilde wilde salmsteak oproep. Of 'n ongelooflike pangeskilde heilbot of forel.

Maar het u al aan sardientjies gedink as breinkos?

Ons weet nie almal hou van sardientjies nie (is u versigtig daarvoor?). Maar nie almal wil en kan sommige van die duurder visse met dieselfde breinbou-voedingstowwe as hierdie kleiner visse bekostig nie. In werklikheid is ingemaakte sardientjies nie net bekostigbare weergawes van dieselfde voedingskragte as ander visse nie, maar jy hoef dit nie eers te kook nie! Hulle is 'n gunsteling van ons Neuro-sjefs wat dit graag in ons breinkos-spyskaarte wil inkorporeer.

Kom ons pak 'n paar van die wetenskap van sardientjies (en ander klein vissies) uit om u te wys wat dit werklik maak "Breinkos noodsaaklik." Wenk: dit is nie net die omega-3 nie. En natuurlik gee ons u goeie idees oor hoe u meer klein vissies soos sardientjies in u dieet kan inkorporeer. Miskien word hulle selfs een van u gunstelinge (ons het selfs kinders laat goedkeur).

KLEIN VIS GEBOU STERKE BREINE

Klein vissies soos sardientjies, makriel en ansjovis bevat dieselfde belangrike breinbou-voedingstowwe wat in groter visse voorkom.

En klein vissies het ook die voordeel dat hulle klein is.

Om klein te wees in 'n wêreld van visse, beteken dat u minder gifstowwe het omdat u vermy wat bekend staan ​​as 'bioakkumulasie'.

Om klein te wees in 'n wêreld van vis, beteken dat u minder gifstowwe het omdat u vermy wat u noem "Bioakkumulasie." Dit is wanneer verbindings by diere ophoop as gevolg van wat hulle eet. Ongelukkig kom hierdie gifstowwe af van die besoedeling wat mettertyd in ons waters opgebou het. Hulle kom uit die water in die vis uit die kos wat die visse eet.

Hier is hoe bioakkumulasie werk. Stel jou voor hoe 'n klein sardien klein mariene organismes soos plankton eet. Elke sardien hoef nie te veel plankton gedurende hul leeftyd te eet nie. Hulle word nie baie groot nie, en hulle leef nie baie lank nie. Dit beperk die kans om te veel gifstowwe in hul liggame uit hul voedsel op te bou.

Stel jou nou voor 'n groter vis soos tuna wat baie klein vissies eet omdat hulle groter word en langer leef. Die klein hoeveelhede gifstowwe wat in die klein vissies beland, kan dus mettertyd in die groter visse ophoop.

Dit is veral belangrik as dit kom by die gesondheid van die brein. Sommige van hierdie gifstowwe wat in visse voorkom (bv. Kwik, plaagdoders, ens.) Beïnvloed die brein en senuweestelsel negatief.

Moenie ons verkeerd verstaan ​​nie, baie groot visse is beslis breinkos! Maar ons beveel aan dat as u groot vis eet, kies "wild" waar moontlik, omdat hulle minder gifstowwe het as gekweekte vis.

Moet dus nie u pragtige salm, heilbot, swart kabeljou of forel opgee nie, maar kies "wilde" vis (of selfs sardientjies?) Wanneer u kan.

Toetse het getoon dat sardienolie die serebrale korteks van die brein kan aktiveer. Dit is die buitekant van die brein wat geheue, aandag, denke en taal beheer.

In werklikheid kan sardienolie help om geheue by bejaardes te verbeter, en kan dit die risiko van ouderdomsverwante kognitiewe agteruitgang (dws Alzheimer) verminder. Toetse het getoon dat sardienolie kan aktiveer die serebrale korteks van die brein. Dit is die buitekant van die brein wat geheue, aandag, denke en taal beheer. Dit is wonderlik om u serebrale korteks te "aanskakel", want dit kan u geheue tot op ouderdom skerp hou. En wie wil nie daardie?

Begin u sardientjies as breinkos beskou?

Kom ons kyk na die voeding in sardientjies.

BRAIN LOVIN ’OMEGA-3S

Jou brein is 60% vet, en omega-3's is 'n noodsaaklike vet wat van kritieke belang is vir optimale breingesondheid. Daar is veral baie omega-3 in sardientjies DHA (docosahexaensuur) en EPA (eikosapentaensuur).

Het u geweet dat DHA direk in ons breinselle opgeneem word? In werklikheid is DHA 'n belangrike speler vir brein- en geestesgesondheid vir alle ouderdomme, van kleins af tot bejaardes.

Die ander belangrikste omega-3 in sardientjies, EPA, bestry inflammasie, wat goed is vir u brein en u geestesgesondheid. Om nie eers te praat van die res van jou liggaam nie.

Omega-3's is wonderlike breinvoedingstowwe. Maar sardientjies pak 'n groter voedingspons as dit.

NIE NET OMEGA-3S nie

Een blikkie sardientjies het byna die helfte van u daaglikse behoefte vitamien D. En vitamien D ondersteun geestesgesondheid, geheue en kognitiewe gesondheid (denkvermoë).

Selenium is 'n ander voedingstof wat in klein vissies soos sardientjies voorkom. Selenium is 'n antioksidant spoormineraal, wat beteken dat u slegs 'n klein hoeveelheid (dit wil sê 'spoor') nodig het. Deur genoeg selenium te hê, kan dit inflammasie verminder, buie verbeter en die risiko van epileptiese aanvalle verminder.

En moenie vergeet dat die eet van die bene van die vis dit ook bied nie kalsium en fosfor. Hierdie noodsaaklike minerale help u senuwees om met mekaar te kommunikeer.

Een blikkie sardientjies bevat 'n derde van u daaglikse kalsium, sowel as meer as die helfte van u daaglikse fosforbehoeftes.

So jy kan sien, sardientjies is 'n noodsaaklike breinkos, vol NeuroTrition-goedgekeurde voedingstowwe.

6 PRAGTIGE MANIERE OM SARDINE (EN ANDER KLEIN VISE) TE GENIET

Sommige mense verkies 'n heerlike salm-, heilbot-, swart kabeljou- of forelfilet. Maar sardientjies kan ook 'n smaaklike, begrotingsvriendelike en maklik gebruikbare breinkos wees (direk uit die blikkie).

NeuroTrition Rx: BPA (bisfenol-A) is 'n stof wat gebruik word om metaalblikkies te voer, insluitend dié van sardientjies. Dit word verbind met gesondheidsprobleme, soos vetsug, diabetes en kankers. Ons beveel BPA-vrye blikkies aan waar moontlik. As u plaaslike kruidenierswinkel nie BPA-vrye sardientjies dra nie, vra hulle om te begin!

  1. Top jou groenslaai saam met hulle. As u op soek is na 'n proteïen om by u groente te voeg, hoef u nie verder as die blikkie sardientjies in u spens te soek nie.
  2. Het hullein 'n toebroodjie, of op klappers. Voeg gesnyde komkommers, soetrissies en/of swart olywe by om dit bo -op te maak.
  3. Maak 'n “Sardienslaai” deur dit op te sny en te meng met gekapte groente soos seldery en paprika, onversoete Griekse jogurt, mosterd en paprika. Of meng dit hier met ons tuisgemaakte, gesonde (ernstig!) Mayo.
  4. Het jy probeer vis tacos? Hulle is een van die absolute gunstelinge van Orsha (stigter en uitvoerende hoof van NeuroTrition). Waarom nie met sardientjies probeer nie? Bonus: u hoef dit nie eers te kook nie.
  5. Ruil die garnale of salm in jou roerbraai vir sardientjies.
  6. Top a gebakte patat met gekapte sardientjies en salsa of ons heerlike crema -resep, hier.

Gaan voort! Voeg 'n paar klein vissies soos sardientjies by jou dieet. U kry nie net die brein lief vir omega-3-vette nie, maar ook noodsaaklike vitamiene en minerale vir u brein en u geestesgesondheid.

Hulle is beslis voedsaam, en hulle kan absoluut heerlik wees! Hulle is 'n gunsteling van NeuroTrition. As u dit eers probeer het, kan dit ook u gunsteling word!

Jou brein is 60% vet, en omega-3's is 'n noodsaaklike vet wat van kritieke belang is vir optimale breingesondheid. Daar is veral baie omega-3 in sardientjies DHA (docosahexaensuur) en EPA (eikosapentaensuur).

Het u geweet dat DHA direk in ons breinselle opgeneem word? In werklikheid is DHA 'n belangrike speler vir brein- en geestesgesondheid vir alle ouderdomme, van kleins af tot bejaardes.

Die ander belangrikste omega-3 in sardientjies, EPA, bestry inflammasie, wat goed is vir u brein en u geestesgesondheid. Om nie eers te praat van die res van jou liggaam nie.

Omega-3's is wonderlike breinvoedingstowwe. Maar sardientjies pak 'n groter voedingspons as dit.

NIE NET OMEGA-3S nie

Een blikkie sardientjies het byna die helfte van u daaglikse behoefte vitamien D. En vitamien D ondersteun geestesgesondheid, geheue en kognitiewe gesondheid (denkvermoë).

Selenium is 'n ander voedingstof wat in klein vissies soos sardientjies voorkom. Selenium is 'n antioksidant spoormineraal, wat beteken dat u slegs 'n klein hoeveelheid (dit wil sê 'spoor') nodig het. Deur genoeg selenium te hê, kan dit inflammasie verminder, buie verbeter en die risiko van epileptiese aanvalle verminder.

En moenie vergeet dat die eet van die bene van die vis dit ook bied nie kalsium en fosfor. Hierdie noodsaaklike minerale help u senuwees om met mekaar te kommunikeer.

Een blikkie sardientjies bevat 'n derde van u daaglikse kalsium, sowel as meer as die helfte van u daaglikse fosforbehoeftes.

So jy kan sien, sardientjies is 'n noodsaaklike breinkos, vol NeuroTrition-goedgekeurde voedingstowwe.

6 PRAGTIGE MANIERE OM SARDINE (EN ANDER KLEIN VISE) TE GENIET

Sommige mense verkies 'n heerlike salm-, heilbot-, swart kabeljou- of forelfilet. Maar sardientjies kan ook 'n smaaklike, begrotingsvriendelike en maklik gebruikbare breinkos wees (direk uit die blikkie).

NeuroTrition Rx: BPA (bisfenol-A) is 'n stof wat gebruik word om metaalblikkies te voer, insluitend dié van sardientjies. Dit word verbind met gesondheidsprobleme, soos vetsug, diabetes en kankers. Ons beveel BPA-vrye blikkies aan waar moontlik. As u plaaslike kruidenierswinkel nie BPA-vrye sardientjies dra nie, vra hulle om te begin!

  1. Top jou groenslaai saam met hulle. As u op soek is na 'n proteïen om by u groente te voeg, hoef u nie verder as die blikkie sardientjies in u spens te soek nie.
  2. Het hullein 'n toebroodjie, of op klappers. Voeg gesnyde komkommers, soetrissies en/of swart olywe by om dit bo -op te maak.
  3. Maak 'n “Sardienslaai” deur dit op te sny en te meng met gekapte groente soos seldery en paprika, onversoete Griekse jogurt, mosterd en paprika. Of meng dit hier met ons tuisgemaakte, gesonde (ernstig!) Mayo.
  4. Het jy probeer vis tacos? Hulle is een van die absolute gunstelinge van Orsha (stigter en uitvoerende hoof van NeuroTrition). Waarom nie met sardientjies probeer nie? Bonus: u hoef dit nie eers te kook nie.
  5. Ruil die garnale of salm in jou roerbraai vir sardientjies.
  6. Top a gebakte patat met gekapte sardientjies en salsa of ons heerlike crema -resep, hier.

Gaan voort! Voeg 'n paar klein vissies soos sardientjies by jou dieet. U kry nie net die brein lief vir omega-3-vette nie, maar ook noodsaaklike vitamiene en minerale vir u brein en u geestesgesondheid.

Hulle is beslis voedsaam, en hulle kan absoluut heerlik wees! Hulle is 'n gunsteling van NeuroTrition. As u dit eers probeer het, kan dit ook u gunsteling word!


Breinvoedselkonferensie - Resepte

U het dit moontlik al voorheen gehoor.

En ons by NeuroTrition stem heeltemal saam.

Die gedagte aan "vis" kan visioene van 'n perfek gegrilde wilde salmsteak oproep. Of 'n ongelooflike pangeskilde heilbot of forel.

Maar het u al aan sardientjies gedink as breinkos?

Ons weet nie almal hou van sardientjies nie (is u versigtig daarvoor?). Maar nie almal wil en kan sommige van die duurder visse met dieselfde breinbou-voedingstowwe as hierdie kleiner visse bekostig nie. In werklikheid is ingemaakte sardientjies nie net bekostigbare weergawes van dieselfde voedingskragte as ander visse nie, maar jy hoef dit nie eers te kook nie! Hulle is 'n gunsteling van ons Neuro-sjefs wat dit graag in ons breinkos-spyskaarte wil inkorporeer.

Kom ons pak 'n paar van die wetenskap van sardientjies (en ander klein vissies) uit om u te wys wat dit werklik maak "Breinkos noodsaaklik." Wenk: dit is nie net die omega-3 nie. En natuurlik gee ons u goeie idees oor hoe u meer klein vissies soos sardientjies in u dieet kan inkorporeer. Miskien word hulle selfs een van u gunstelinge (ons het selfs kinders laat goedkeur).

KLEIN VIS GEBOU STERKE BREINE

Klein vissies soos sardientjies, makriel en ansjovis bevat dieselfde belangrike breinbou-voedingstowwe wat in groter visse voorkom.

En klein vissies het ook die voordeel dat hulle klein is.

Om klein te wees in 'n wêreld van visse, beteken dat u minder gifstowwe het omdat u vermy wat bekend staan ​​as 'bioakkumulasie'.

Om klein te wees in 'n wêreld van vis, beteken dat u minder gifstowwe het omdat u vermy wat u noem "Bioakkumulasie." Dit is wanneer verbindings by diere ophoop as gevolg van wat hulle eet. Ongelukkig kom hierdie gifstowwe af van die besoedeling wat mettertyd in ons waters opgebou het. Hulle kom uit die water in die vis uit die kos wat die visse eet.

Hier is hoe bioakkumulasie werk. Stel jou voor hoe 'n klein sardien klein mariene organismes soos plankton eet. Elke sardien hoef nie te veel plankton gedurende hul leeftyd te eet nie. Hulle word nie baie groot nie, en hulle leef nie baie lank nie. Dit beperk die kans om te veel gifstowwe in hul liggame uit hul voedsel op te bou.

Stel jou nou voor 'n groter vis soos tuna wat baie klein vissies eet omdat hulle groter word en langer leef. Die klein hoeveelhede gifstowwe wat in die klein vissies beland, kan dus mettertyd in die groter visse ophoop.

Dit is veral belangrik as dit kom by die gesondheid van die brein. Some of these toxins found in fish (e.g. mercury, pesticides, etc.) negatively affect the brain and nervous system.

Don’t get us wrong, many large fish are definitely brain foods! But we recommend that when you eat large fish, choose “wild” whenever possible because they have fewer toxins than farmed fish.

So don’t give up your beautiful salmon, halibut, black cod or trout just opt for “wild” fish (or even sardines?) whenever you can.

Tests have shown that sardine oil can activate the cerebral cortex of the brain. This is the outside part of the brain that controls memory, attention, thought, and language.

In fact, sardine oil can help improve memory in elderly people, and may help reduce risk of age-related cognitive decline (i.e. Alzheimer’s). Tests have shown that sardine oil can activate the cerebral cortex of the brain. This is the outside part of the brain that controls memory, attention, thought, and language. It’s great to “turn on” your cerebral cortex because it can help keep your memory sharp well into old age. And who doesn’t want that?

Are you starting to see sardines as brain food?

Let’s dive into the nutrition in sardines.

BRAIN LOVIN’ OMEGA-3S

Your brain is 60% fat, and omega-3s are an essential fat that is critical for optimal brain health. There are plenty of omega-3s in sardines, particularly DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid).

Did you know that DHA gets incorporated right into our brain cells? In fact, DHA is a key player for brain and mental health for all ages from infancy to elderly.

The other main omega-3 in sardines, EPA, fights inflammation, which is great for your brain and mental health. Not to mention the rest of your body.

Omega-3s are amazing brainy nutrients. But sardines pack a bigger nutritional punch than that.

NOT JUST OMEGA-3S

One can of sardines has almost half of your daily requirement of vitamin D. And vitamin D supports mental health, memory, and cognitive health (ability to think).

Selenium is another nutrient found in small fish like sardines. Selenium is an antioxidant trace mineral, which means that you only need a small (i.e. “trace”) amount of it. Having enough selenium may help to reduce inflammation, improve moods, as well as lower the risk of epileptic seizures.

And don’t forget that eating the bones of the fish also provides calcium en phosphorus. These essential minerals help your nerves communicate with each other.

One can of sardines has a third of your daily calcium, as well as more than half of your daily phosphorus requirements.

So you can see, sardines are an essential brain food, full of NeuroTrition-approved nutrients.

6 TASTY WAYS TO ENJOY SARDINES (AND OTHER SMALL FISH)

Some people may prefer a lovely salmon, halibut, black cod or trout fillet. But, sardines can be a tasty, budget-friendly, and easy to use (right out of the can) brain food too.

NeuroTrition Rx: BPA (bisphenol-A) is a substance used to line metal food cans, including those of sardines. It has been linked with health concerns, such as obesity, diabetes, and cancers. We recommend BPA-free cans whenever possible. If your local grocery store is not carrying BPA-free sardines, ask them to start!

  1. Top your green salad with them. If you’re looking for a protein to add to your greens, look no further than the can of sardines in your pantry.
  2. Have themin a sandwich, or on crackers. Add sliced cucumbers, bell peppers and/or black olives to top it off.
  3. Make a “sardine salad” by chopping them up and mixing with chopped veggies like celery & bell pepper, unsweetened Greek yogurt, mustard, and paprika. Or mix them with our homemade, healthy (seriously!) mayo, here.
  4. Have you tried fish tacos? They’re one of Orsha’s (NeuroTrition founder & CEO) absolute favourites. Why not try them with sardines? Bonus: you won’t even need to cook them.
  5. Swap out the shrimp or salmon in your stir fry for sardines.
  6. Top a baked sweet potato with chopped sardines and salsa or our delicious crema recipe, here.

Go ahead! Add some small fish like sardines into your diet. You’ll get not only the brain lovin’ omega-3 fats, but also essential vitamins and minerals for your brain and mental health.

They’re definitely nutritious, and they absolutely can be delicious! They are a NeuroTrition favourite. Once you try them, they might become your favourite too!

You may have heard this before.

And we at NeuroTrition completely agree.

The thought of “fish” may conjure up visions of a perfectly grilled wild salmon steak. Or an amazing pan-seared halibut or trout.

​​But, have you thought of sardines as brain food?

We know not everyone loves sardines (do you have your guard up against ‘em?). But, not everyone wants and can afford some of the more expensive fish with the same brain-building nutrients as these smaller fish. In fact, canned sardines are not only affordable versions of the same nutritional powerhouses some other fish are, but you don’t even need to cook ‘em! They are a favourite of our Neuro-Chefs who love to incorporate them into our Brain Food Menus.

Let’s unpack some of the science of sardines (and other small fish) to show you what truly makes them a “brain food essential.” Hint: it’s not just the omega-3s. And, of course, we’ll give you some great ideas on how you can incorporate more small fish like sardines into your diet. Maybe they’ll even become one of your favourites (we’ve even had kids approve them).

SMALL FISH BUILD STRONG BRAINS

Small fish like sardines, mackerel, and anchovies contain the same key brain-building nutrients found in larger fish.

And small fish have the added benefit of, well, being small.

Being small in a world of fish means you have fewer toxins because you avoid what’s known as “bioaccumulation.”

Being small in a world of fish means you have fewer toxins because you avoid what’s known as “bioaccumulation.” This is when compounds accumulate in animals because of what they eat. Unfortunately, these toxins come from the pollution that has been building up in our waters over time. They get from the water into the fish from the food those fish eat.

Here’s how bioaccumulation works. Picture a small sardine eating tiny marine organisms like plankton. Each sardine doesn’t need to eat too much plankton in their lifetime. They don’t grow very large, and they don’t live very long. This limits the chance of building up too many toxins in their bodies from their food.

Now picture a larger fish like tuna who eat a lot of small fish because they grow larger and live longer. So those tiny amounts of toxins that get into the small fish can accumulate in the larger fish over time.

This is particularly important when it comes to brain health. Some of these toxins found in fish (e.g. mercury, pesticides, etc.) negatively affect the brain and nervous system.

Don’t get us wrong, many large fish are definitely brain foods! But we recommend that when you eat large fish, choose “wild” whenever possible because they have fewer toxins than farmed fish.

Unfortunately, these toxins come from the pollution that has been building up in our waters over time. They get from the water into the fish from the food those fish eat.

Here’s how bioaccumulation works. Picture a small sardine eating tiny marine organisms like plankton. Each sardine doesn’t need to eat too much plankton in their lifetime. They don’t grow very large, and they don’t live very long. This limits the chance of building up too many toxins in their bodies from their food.

Now picture a larger fish like tuna who eat a lot of small fish because they grow larger and live longer. So those tiny amounts of toxins that get into the small fish can accumulate in the larger fish over time.

This is particularly important when it comes to brain health. Some of these toxins found in fish (e.g. mercury, pesticides, etc.) negatively affect the brain and nervous system.

Don’t get us wrong, many large fish are definitely brain foods! But we recommend that when you eat large fish, choose “wild” whenever possible because they have fewer toxins than farmed fish.

So don’t give up your beautiful salmon, halibut, black cod or trout just opt for “wild” fish (or even sardines?) whenever you can.

Tests have shown that sardine oil can activate the cerebral cortex of the brain. This is the outside part of the brain that controls memory, attention, thought, and language.

In fact, sardine oil can help improve memory in elderly people, and may help reduce risk of age-related cognitive decline (i.e. Alzheimer’s). Tests have shown that sardine oil can activate the cerebral cortex of the brain. This is the outside part of the brain that controls memory, attention, thought, and language. It’s great to “turn on” your cerebral cortex because it can help keep your memory sharp well into old age. And who doesn’t want that?

Are you starting to see sardines as brain food?

Let’s dive into the nutrition in sardines.

BRAIN LOVIN’ OMEGA-3S

Your brain is 60% fat, and omega-3s are an essential fat that is critical for optimal brain health. There are plenty of omega-3s in sardines, particularly DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid).

Did you know that DHA gets incorporated right into our brain cells? In fact, DHA is a key player for brain and mental health for all ages from infancy to elderly.

The other main omega-3 in sardines, EPA, fights inflammation, which is great for your brain and mental health. Not to mention the rest of your body.

Omega-3s are amazing brainy nutrients. But sardines pack a bigger nutritional punch than that.

NOT JUST OMEGA-3S

One can of sardines has almost half of your daily requirement of vitamin D. And vitamin D supports mental health, memory, and cognitive health (ability to think).

Selenium is another nutrient found in small fish like sardines. Selenium is an antioxidant trace mineral, which means that you only need a small (i.e. “trace”) amount of it. Having enough selenium may help to reduce inflammation, improve moods, as well as lower the risk of epileptic seizures.

And don’t forget that eating the bones of the fish also provides calcium en phosphorus. These essential minerals help your nerves communicate with each other.

One can of sardines has a third of your daily calcium, as well as more than half of your daily phosphorus requirements.

So you can see, sardines are an essential brain food, full of NeuroTrition-approved nutrients.

6 TASTY WAYS TO ENJOY SARDINES (AND OTHER SMALL FISH)

Some people may prefer a lovely salmon, halibut, black cod or trout fillet. But, sardines can be a tasty, budget-friendly, and easy to use (right out of the can) brain food too.

NeuroTrition Rx: BPA (bisphenol-A) is a substance used to line metal food cans, including those of sardines. It has been linked with health concerns, such as obesity, diabetes, and cancers. We recommend BPA-free cans whenever possible. If your local grocery store is not carrying BPA-free sardines, ask them to start!

  1. Top your green salad with them. If you’re looking for a protein to add to your greens, look no further than the can of sardines in your pantry.
  2. Have themin a sandwich, or on crackers. Add sliced cucumbers, bell peppers and/or black olives to top it off.
  3. Make a “sardine salad” by chopping them up and mixing with chopped veggies like celery & bell pepper, unsweetened Greek yogurt, mustard, and paprika. Or mix them with our homemade, healthy (seriously!) mayo, here.
  4. Have you tried fish tacos? They’re one of Orsha’s (NeuroTrition founder & CEO) absolute favourites. Why not try them with sardines? Bonus: you won’t even need to cook them.
  5. Swap out the shrimp or salmon in your stir fry for sardines.
  6. Top a baked sweet potato with chopped sardines and salsa or our delicious crema recipe, here.

Go ahead! Add some small fish like sardines into your diet. You’ll get not only the brain lovin’ omega-3 fats, but also essential vitamins and minerals for your brain and mental health.

They’re definitely nutritious, and they absolutely can be delicious! They are a NeuroTrition favourite. Once you try them, they might become your favourite too!

You may have heard this before.

And we at NeuroTrition completely agree.

The thought of “fish” may conjure up visions of a perfectly grilled wild salmon steak. Or an amazing pan-seared halibut or trout.

​​But, have you thought of sardines as brain food?

We know not everyone loves sardines (do you have your guard up against ‘em?). But, not everyone wants and can afford some of the more expensive fish with the same brain-building nutrients as these smaller fish. In fact, canned sardines are not only affordable versions of the same nutritional powerhouses some other fish are, but you don’t even need to cook ‘em! They are a favourite of our Neuro-Chefs who love to incorporate them into our Brain Food Menus.

Let’s unpack some of the science of sardines (and other small fish) to show you what truly makes them a “brain food essential.” Hint: it’s not just the omega-3s. And, of course, we’ll give you some great ideas on how you can incorporate more small fish like sardines into your diet. Maybe they’ll even become one of your favourites (we’ve even had kids approve them).

SMALL FISH BUILD STRONG BRAINS

Small fish like sardines, mackerel, and anchovies contain the same key brain-building nutrients found in larger fish.

And small fish have the added benefit of, well, being small.
