Edamame

Fellas,

You know the pea pod like beans that they serve in sushi restaurants? Those are soy beans and they are often referred to as edamame.

My wife and I eat lots of they at home. I buy bags of edamame in the pod (made by Cascadian Farm) in the organic section of my local grocery store.

A whole bag is as satisfying as a bunch of french fries but only contains 240 calories, 10 g of fat (1 g saturated), 18g of carbs (6 g fiber) and 20g of protein.

I love these buggers.

And the icing on the cake: you only have to drop them in boiling water for 3 minutes! What could be easier than that!

Enjoy.....

P.S. there is nothing better than salted edamame and ice cold beer on a hot summer day
