Edamame

2013-10-29 16.27.58

Fred Meyer has edamame, or soybeans! After getting by without these for five years I can’t get enough of them this time. They are the perfect healthy snack when I’m craving for food an hour before dinner. The ones at Fred Meyer are very salty though. For double that amount and only 10 cents more I should have grabbed more at the Asian grocery store. But the FM pack is the perfect single serving.

Here’s why they are good for you according to WebMD:

  • 120 calories
  • 9 grams fiber (same as 4 slices of wheat bread or 4 cups of zucchini)
  • 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 (same as 4-ounce roasted chicken breast(
  • 8% Daily Value for vitamin A
  • 4% Daily Value for calcium
