Secrets of Success

Protein Intake!



I have a hard time meeting the minimum requirement for protein intake...until I discovered lightly sea-salted edamame. 13g of protein per 1/4 cup!! Now it's part of my morning snack and I can pass on the nuts which are so high on fat. I can a slightly nutty taste from the edamame.

  • Thank you for your secret. Getting enough protein without adding a huge amount of calories is a problem I struggle with. I will give this a try. - by FIT_N_FEARLESS
  • Walmart has edamame near the produce section in bags like other snack foods. You can also find it frozen. - by 1LAZYCOOK
  • I cook the frozen shelled edamame and put it in the fridge overnight with a mixture of your favorite kind of soy sauce, some powdered ginger, some red pepper flakes, garlic. To serve, I dip out 1/2 cup and drain the liquid. Then eat it with my fingers. It's great for that munchy feeling snacking and since I figure it into my daily calorie count plans, it works for me. - by STILLFLYIN
  • @Mshelli, A lot of stores have frozen edamame. Just steam it and salt. - by MIRDREAMS
  • This sounds like a great idea. Where do you get these lightly seasalted edamame's? Are they baked and in the dry section or are they refrigerated? - by MSHELLI
