I'm on Day 3, I've got to have three shakes during the day and two healthy snacks. Well my snack of choice yesterday was the Edamame sprinkled with a little togarashi. Yummy!

The Edamame being so amazingly nutritious along with a healthy low glycemic lifestyle its miraculous

A snack of 155gr edamame is 188 Calories.

*8.1 gr of fiber which make you feel full longer as it is releasing  its energy slowly and consistently. Even with 3gr sugar, it doesn't raise your blood sugar.

*18.5 gr protein. High in protein snack means a great source of powerful energy. Also, it provides a complete protein as well as all the amino acids that our body needs as we cannot produce it.

*3.5 % Iron!! Has a vegan, this is a great source of iron so my energy keeps up with my healthy active lifestyle.

* 440mg  potassium. That's such an important mineral in our body as it's health benefits are almost endless. It promotes healthy muscle contractions, helps the nervous system, reduce high blood pressure, good for the heart and kidney. Help prevent kidney stones, osteoporosis...Amazing🥳

* Edamame contains folate. Our cells need it to produce DNA and helps in the process of cell division. Did you know that having adequate amount of folate help prevent depression?
