An Oyster a Day…with Sardines!

Oysters and Sardines are two super foods for the brain.  Eat them several times a week!

Facts About Oysters:

  • Rich in calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, zinc, phosphorous, selenium and Omega-3
  • Good source of Vitamin A, B, C and D and contain tyrosine, an amino acid that supports brain function

I buy these Oysters  already shucked in the refrigerated seafood section at the local Publix store for $5.

Facts About Sardines:

  • They are high in omega-3’s, contain virtually no mercury and are loaded with calcium.
  • They also contain iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper and manganese as well as a full complement of B vitamins.

I buy sardines with the skin on.  Avoid skinless and boneless because many excellent nutrients are contained in the skin and bones.  I get these Trader Joe’s Sardines, packed in water.  The Amazon price at this link is expensive.  The local Trader Joe’s sells a can for $1.29.
