Edamame…what?

Well, in reality, they’re just a fancy name for cooked soybeans… But they’re SO GOOD and are SO GOOD FOR YOU!

WebMD describes them well (http://www.m.webmd.com/diet/features/the-secret-of-edamame):

“Here’s what you’ll find in a half-cup serving of shelled edamame (or 1 1/8 cup edamame in the pods):

120 calories
9 grams fiber
2.5 grams fat
1.5 grams polyunsaturated fat (0.3 grams plant omega-3 fatty acids)
0.5 gram monounsaturated fat
11 grams protein
13 grams carbohydrate
15 mg sodium
10% of the Daily Value for vitamin C
10% Daily Value for iron
8% Daily Value for vitamin A
4% Daily Value for calcium”

They’re definitely something you want to try if you haven’t already done so! I eat them for snack or even a larger portion for a part of my lunch… And they’re so quick and easy!

 

Stay Healthy,

Tara
