about this snack
Edamame are young soybeans picked from their pods. They have a very refreshing taste and their small size make them perfect for snacking on. We paired edamame beans with kale chips coated in cashew butter with chia seeds and baked (not fried!) for a delicious savory snack with a satisfying crunch!
what are the benefits?
The soy in edamame beans are a great source of magnesium – a mineral that can also be found in nuts, seeds and oats. Magnesium is helpful in preventing headaches and cramps. The fibrous beans are also high in plant protein, along with vitamin K and folate.
Pair them with kale and you’ve got yourself a super snack that’s high in protein and less than 150 calories! Per calorie, kale has more iron than beef, more calcium than milk and ten times more Vitamin C than spinach! In fact, it’s one of those most nutritionally dense foods on the planet.
