Healthy Snack

Edamame:
Buy frozen shelled soybeans and run a handful of them under steaming hot water. Spritz with fresh lemon juice for a tangy twist.

This protein packed bean also contains cholesterol lowering soy protein.
For a quick snack this is a great way to go.


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
