Look for sardines with skin and bones (which are edible) as they have more than four times the amount of calcium as skinless, boneless sardines. If you’re lucky enough to have fresh sardines available in your supermarket, try them in place of the canned sardines. Lightly dredge them in salt-and-pepper-seasoned flour and sauté them in a little olive oil. Serve with: Warm pita bread and a cold beer. </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/sardine_greek_salad_for_2.html#comments March/April 2010 Greek Mediterranean Easy Diabetes appropriate Gluten free Healthy weight Heart healthy High calcium High fiber High potassium Low calorie Low saturated fat glutfree Recipes - Individual Recipes Recipes & Menus - Antioxidants Recipes & Menus - Seafood Recipes & Menus - Spices Beans/legumes Cheese Citrus Dairy Fish Tomatoes Vegetables Beans/Legumes Fish Dinner

Use them to infuse your cooking with unique flavor: Toss purple basil with salad greens to add color and a taste that’s milder than regular sweet basil. Chervil goes well with fish and eggs; it’s heat-sensitive, so add it toward the end of cooking.

We cook the shrimp before marinating it. This recipe originally appeared on Emeril Green, Emeril Lagasse’s cooking show on Planet Green. Lagasse has his own brand of frozen wild American shrimp, which meet strict U.S. environmental standards. The shrimp taste sweet and “they just smell like the sea,” according to Emeril. Serve this with tostones (fried plantain chips) or tortilla chips.

He’s a fellow with the Blue Ocean Institute and is working on a PBS series, Turning the Tide, about food and the environment. When we asked Seaver what type of seafood he would like to include in a recipe for EatingWell, he suggested the humble canned sardine. He said, “Sustainability isn’t just about the oceans—it’s about sustainability for people. Anyone can jump in their SUV, drive to Walmart and buy a can of sardines. I love that! It needs to be accessible and easy.” We think Seaver has truly elevated the canned sardine with this fresh-tasting and simple appetizer.</div> http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/sardine_tomato_toasts.html#comments March/April 2010 American Easy Diabetes appropriate Low carbohydrate Christmas Easter New Year's Eve Thanksgiving Fish Tomatoes Vegetables Wheat Whole Grains Fish Appetizers Bake Fall Spring Summer Winter 8 or more Birthday Budget Entertaining, casual Entertaining, formal Make ahead instructions Potluck Quick (total 30 min. or less) 30 minutes or less Appetizer Fri, 26 Feb 2010 22:02:32 +0000 Penelope Wall 15592 at http://www.eatingwell.com Easy Egg Recipes for $2 or Less http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/quick_healthy_cooking/quick_weeknight_dinners/easy_egg_recipes_for_2_or_less <div class="field field-type-text field-field-original-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Farm-Fresh Eggs </div> </div> </div> <p>A few weeks ago I noticed that Judy Billard, our circulation director, was delivering cartons of eggs to some of our co-workers almost on a daily basis.
