Edamame, a fancy name for boiled soybeans, is often found as an appetizer at most Sushi and Japanese restaurants. Edamame is an ideal low calorie, high fiber, high protein snack. As a matter of fact, a 1/2 cup serving of these soybeans has only 120 calories, as much fiber as 4 pieces of whole wheat bread (9 grams) and 11 grams of protein. If that weren’t enough, edamame is also a good source of omerga-3 fatty acids. Edamame is easy to make, comes in large freezable bags, and with a little soy sauce and a dash of sea salt is a very nutritious snack.
Costco has a large, economy package made by Seapoint Farms that has several smaller packages inside. Give them a try, for a “healthy” food they’re delicious.
