Cool Product Alert - Roasted Edamame

Seapoint Farms Lightly Salted Roasted Edamame

I heart these little suckers. I didn't at first but seriously they grow on you. Crunchy and nutty. A few satisfies my nut/salty snack mix cravings with less fat and carbs. A good thing too is 12 or so and my jaw is aching and less is always good.

You can eat them as a snack on there own or sprinkle on a salad for a boost of lowfat protein. These are a great on-the-go snack. Toss a handful in a Ziploc baggie in your purse.

They also come in Wasabi flavor for those who like it hot. Locally I bought them at Baron's Marketplace and Sprouts. Here is an online source.

Roasted Edamame (aka Soy Nuts, Roasted Soybeans) are a super source of protein, containing all 8 essential amino acids. One serving provides 14 grams of soy protein and only 2 net carbohydrates.

WARNING: Creatures great and small love these. I was once attacked by a pack of wild squirrels for my roasted edamame. So proceed with caution.

I just found these in my grocery store! I don't typically eat the soy stuff, but these are good and you can't go wrong with the serving size and the amount of protein! I enjoy looking at your recipes. Thanks for sharing!!

I heart Edamame too. I haven't found this brand here in NH but others I have tried were pretty good. TJ's has hot ones and I'm not a fan of spicy so thanks for hooking us up with their on line availablity. As always you rock Michelle...have a great night...Laurie

I am addicted to these. I used to be able to buy them in bulk at Costco, but I can't find them anymore:(
