Shelled soybeans, anyone? Or maybe edamame will appeal to you better?
I love Edamame in pods! Every time we go to a Japanese restaurant, we order a bowl of edamame slightly salted. These pods are so delicious!
For a quick and nourishing snack or even add some edamame to your soup or salad, you can stock up on frozen shelled variety to have it always at your hand. Look for organic or sustainably-grown options to avoid as much chemicals in your diet as possible.
Edamame Anti-Aging Benefits
Edamame – or it is also known as soybeans – are packed with plant based protein, fiber and the power of soy. Each serving is low in saturated fat and cholesterol and may reduce the risk of heart disease. Try this delicious bean in your soup, salad, stir-fry or as a snack to nourish both your body and your soul.
For those of us who are exercising and lose electrolytes during intense workouts, edamame supplies our bodies with minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, and manganese.
Vitamin C, riboflavin, thiamin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin E, and tocopherol are some of the vitamins that are present in edamame.
And for those of us who just love, love their beautiful skin – mind this – edamame contains isoflavones that may be beneficial in managing age-related skin changes especially in postmenopausal women.
