Wild Planet Sardines review and recipes

I know there are alot of people out there that think fish is gross but I can tell you none of them are in my family. Me, my husband and all 6 of my kids love fish. My youngest would eat fish every day if Id let her lol. Sardines are one of our favorite snack or lunch foods. They are so easy to make and you can do so much with them.  Best part is they are a healthy lunch option with so much Omega 3, protein, and calcium in them. So when we got the chance to try Wild Planet Sardines you bet we said yes!
