Seapoint Farms Edamame

Many of us get more than our fair share of processed soy products – soymilk, tofu, protein bars, veggie burgers, and the like – but unless we order edamame in a Japanese restaurant, we could easily miss out on  eating fresh, whole soybeans.

That would be a shame, because the lovely green pods offer so many advantages: The whole beans are significantly richer in isoflavones, protein, calcium, and vitamins A and B than their processed counterparts and, when sold frozen, rarely contain additives of any kind. These organic, frozen pods from Seapoint Farms cook up well in a jiffy and make an excellent high-protein snack or dinner side. You can also get them combined with a mix of veggies for a quick and colorful stir-fry. About $4 for a 14-ounce bag at local natural groceries; visit to find them in your area.
