A Snack One Can Indulge In

As humans we all crave snacks; we munch and we crunch; we crave salt, we crave sweets, and we crave spice. We eat out of boredom, out of hunger, we eat to cope during difficult situations, and to fuel our body and minds. Where we make the mistake, is when we crave snacks, we give into the power of junk foods; we allow our cravings to overcome our intelligence, and we begin to munch on foods that will destroy our lives instead of fueling our minds. We cannot allow our cravings to overrule our intelligence and to destroy our health. We must discover new ways to snack to keep our health, body, and mind under control and to curb those cravings that get us all into trouble.

Roasted edamame is a delicious, flavorful, savory snack that one can munch on and not only feel full and satisfied but will also reap the health benefits that edamame has to offer.

Soy to Avoid

  • Soy cheese
  • Soy ice cream
  • Soy yogurt
  • Soy "meat"
  • Soy lecithin
  • Soy baby formula

Note:

The consumption of soy has been very controversial. Unfermented soy has been known to cause health issues due to the likeliness that the soy is genetically modified. GM foods and unfermented soy has been known to cause negative health effects when consumed in abundance as the main source of protein in ones diet. If one desires to consume a high amount of soy to suit a specific lifestyle, such as vegetarianism, then one should consume fermented soy. Fermented soy includes: natto, miso, and tempeh. If one decides to consume soy on a regular basis one should limit their soy intake and to consume mostly fermented soy. Edamame is a delicious snack, but it should not be the main source of protein in ones diet.

      I hope you all enjoy this recipe, my family and I sure did! I was buying roasted edamame in the grocery stores here in Vermont, USA but this time I tried to make it myself with spices that I enjoy without any added sugars or spices I am not all that fond of, and it came out very good! I never knew that edamame was hard to find in some places since I find it in my local grocery stores freezer even though I have found it difficult to find organic soybeans. It is a delicious snack, and I am sure there are many other beans that would work perfectly for this recipe. If any of you find a good substitute for the edamame, please share with us, so I can give it a try as well :)

      vespawoolf, I have never tried fava beans, I wonder if I could find them here at the whole foods market, next time I am there I am going to look into it.

      I love snacks that are spiced with garlic, and this is no exception. I like your recipe, and I might give it a try -- I might replace edamame with other beans, since finding edamame is hard yet. Thanks for posting!

      Argh - now I'm hungry! I love edamame, but sourcing them here is a bit difficult. Must hunt down an Asian grocer and make these soon!

      We haven't found edamame yet in Peru, but we do have fresh fava beans and they would work fabulously with this recipe. I'm gonna give it a try soon. Thanks! Love all the chopped garlic. : )
