For quite a while I have been looking for a new snack food to satisfy my inevitable after work hunger without breaking my calorie budget. Not too long ago I had the chance to try edamame for the first time and discovered I quite like them. On my next trip to Trader Joe's I got some frozen pods and have been enjoying them on a somewhat regular basis. The combination of high fiber and great nutty taste really satisfies me and fills me up on 150-200 calories, which is the perfect snack size for me. I have taken to dressing them with a bit of rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and salt when I want a flavored snack. Do you have any ideas for other healthy snacks? Burnout is always a risk when I find a healthy item I really like, because I lean on it for a big portion of my diet. Extra avenues to explore would be great.
