I am happy to introduce Marie from Make and Takes as today’s guest blogger! Marie is one of the bloggers I had the pleasure of meeting in person recently and she is as sweet as she is impressive. I love having her for a guest post since she is so talented at creating kid-friendly activities and snacks…which brings us to her post. Thanks, for visiting, Marie!
I’m happy to be a guest today as This Week For Dinner is one of my favorite food blogs! I love Jane’s Weekly Menu, it’s always giving me good ideas for what to eat.
Today I’m sharing one of my family’s favorite healthy snacks, Edamame! Have you tried it before? Edamame are soybeans in pods. You don’t eat the pod, just the yummy soybeans inside. My kids and I can gobble a whole bag of Edamame in minutes. They’re a simple snack, fun to eat, and good for you too.
You can buy Edamame all ready to go in the freezer section of your grocery store, they even sell big bags of them at Costco.
Place some in a bowl and follow the directions for cooking/steaming on the bag. I also like to add salt to mine, making for an even tastier treat.
Now pop the pod in your mouth and squeeze out the soybean. The salt on top of the pod will give your soybean more flavor. Then discard the pod into a bowl. I dare you to eat just one of these, I promise you won’t be able to stop!
