Nutrient Dense Foods: Sardines

Sardines are small, oily fish that can be eaten whole. This includes bones, skin, organs, brains and everything.

They contain a little bit of almost every nutrient that the body needs and are pretty close to being perfect from a nutritional standpoint.

Like other fatty fish, they’re also very high in heart-healthy Omega-3s.
