This delicious smoky cracker or toast spread made is made with protein-packed sardines! A great snack that's high in omega-3 and low in both carbs and sugar.
I'm a big fan of sardines, for both their protein and omega-3 content.
They are an acquired taste, so this recipe may not be for everyone. However, if you're looking for a way to incorporate these delicious, teeny fish into your diet, this recipe might help!
My day of eating is typically broken down into: breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, tea.
The 'snack' portion of the day is devoted to something that will fuel me for the gym at 4pm.
Some of my favorite snacks include:
- Sugar-free pumpkin biscuit (also coming soon)
- Rice cakes and/or apples with peanut butter
Lately, I've also been enjoying my Homemade Crackers with today's savory spread!
A little four-ounce can of sardines packs a whopping 23 grams of protein, as well as two grams of omega-3 fatty acids.
I've had a love affair with these power-packed swimmers for years. In particular, when I was pregnant with Sam, I'd make this sandwich nearly every day.
The addition of mayo gives this a creamy mouthfeel and mutes the 'fishy' taste of the sardines. The paprika gives the spread a nice 'smoky' flavor that I just love.
Give it a shot sometime if you're feeling adventurous!
