Edamame (Soybeans)

Found in the frozen produce section of Trader Joe's, I buy the ones labelled, uncooked. They cook up in boiling water in 5 minutes. I sprinkle with a bit of sea salt and serve.

Note: you do not eat the pod, gently squeezing the shell will allow the edamame bean to pop out easily.

Soybeans are also high in fiber and provide the following daily values to your diet (based on a 2,000 calorie diet):

  • 2% Vitamin C
  • 6% Calcium
  • 15% Iron

Air-popped popcorn

You can find corn kernels for popcorn at almost any grocer, usually in the snack aisle.

This method does require purchasing an air popcorn machine, although they are relatively inexpensive and super easy to use.
