I'm prone to slipping into junk food mode if I'm hungry and away from my place, it's so, so easy for me to buy some unhealthy junk food. It'd be about two hundred times better to have something better, healthier, available when I get stuck out, hungry, like a bat caught out in the sun.
My doctor(s) got on me in July about cholesterol moving in a direction I don't want cholesterol moving, want me to jack up the good-guy cholesterol, lower the bad-guy cholesterol, both waving their fingers about, big frowny faces etc, lectured me about life, omega3s, fish oil etc. (My next AskMe question is going to be about niacin.) I've read around some, found out that the omega3s in a can of wild-caught sardines is about what I'd get in most supplements, and I've found that I like them. (Wildly dependent upon what brand, for sure.)
I'm just wondering if it's okay to stuff a couple cans into my glove box, will they explode, will I die, etc and etc. (Alternately, what is another good, solid, filling healthy food that will hold in heat/cold, over time?)
