I am a creature of habit. I tend to have the same dish for breakfast for months on end until I grow bored. Same goes for dinner. Since moving to Spain my family has adopted a Mediterranean style of eating. Lunch is our largest meal while dinner is usually a large salad with some form of protein. In the last couple weeks however I’ve grown bored of this dinner, maybe it was the change in temperature or pregnancy hormones, who knows but I certainly have not been in the mood for ‘the usual’. I had made coconut quinoa from my weekly meal plan the day before and there was some leftover so I decided to throw it in a bowl together with sardines and avocado. It was so delicious I just had to share it here on the blog.

I first started eating canned sardines when I did my Paleo Restart. Some folks are put off by sardines strong smell and taste but sardines are nutritional powerhouses and would contribute greatly to a healthy balanced diet. Just read this article from Paleo Leap about the many health benefits of sardines.

 

 

If you struggle to create healthy quick weeknight dinners this Coconut Quinoa Sardine bowl is for you.

    Sardines, eh? I vaguely remember liking them as a kid, but I haven’t had them in years. Thanks for sharing this at Savoring Saturdays, Krystal! Hope to see you back this weekend! 🙂

      Funnily enough I hated sardines as a kid! I guess I’m all grown up now 😉😉
