Accidental Brilliance Superfood + Supplement Series...Edamame


I used to wait to eat edamame until I was having sushi but, a few years ago I started to eat it as a snack during the day. I just finished a bowl and although I have shared this recipe before I love it because it is so simple. There are so many benefits packed in these perfect little pods that make it a great source of protein and fiber, not to mention iron, vitamin A, C, and K. And although there has been a little controversy about adding soy into your diet, the isoflavones or phytoestrogens in edamame have been proven to help lower cholesterol and lower the risk of heart disease, cancer and inflammation. There are so many great recipes that include edamame although, a warm bowl with sea salt is still one of my favorites, this hummus recipe is another great option...
