Air Fryer Roasted Edamame is a delicious, low-calorie snack!
I’m on a mission to get my health back in check and that’s been quite a process here lately. I’m finding myself in and out of the doctor’s office more frequently than ever before. Hopefully, though I’m on my way to feeling better.
A major part of that is my diet. A few years ago I changed my diet drastically and it truly helped, then I got sick and had surgery and it just all went downhill from there. It was all my own fault simply making poor choices with snacks and not sticking to the healthy food lifestyle I had been doing.
I’m realizing though just how much those choices have truly impacted my body in a variety of ways, so I’m on the lookout for some great easy, low-calorie snacks and Air Fryer Roasted Edamame happens to be one of my favorites.
What are the benefits of Edamame?
First, Edamame is soybeans, typically in our grocery stores, they are in the frozen vegetable section and come still in the pod.
Edamame is high in protein and low in calories being a plant-based food. They are vitamin-rich too and have been said to help with cholesterol. Edamame actually has a significant amount of benefits, but with everything, moderation is key too.
Many people have varying opinions about if Edamame is good for you or not, for me they work for my diet and I don’t eat mass quantities of them either.
