The packaging of Seapoint Farms Dry Roasted Edamame Goji Blend declared that this was a "Heart Health" snack, "Rich in Antioxidants." From the nutrition facts to the stellar ingredients list, and taste, this product is great all the way - except that the one thing the packaging doesn't tell you is how much antioxidants is present - how can you proclaim "Rich in Antioxidants" and then not say how much in there.
But what we do know is that a 30 gram serving of Seapoint Farms Dry Roasted Edamame Goji Blend provides 120 calories, 3 grams of total fat (5% of the daily value), no saturated fat, 140 mg sodium, 11 grams of protein, 7 grams of fiber (28% of the daily value) and 5 grams of sugars. The ingredients are soybeans, sea salt, organic goji berries. That's it! Boy, I was hoping this would also be tasty, because I might never touch chips again if that's the case.
While in search of some frozen edamame, I came across Seapoint Farms Veggie Blends with Edamame and decided to test it out.
This veggie blend was unlike anything I had seen before. In addition to the edamame, there are also pea pods, baby corn, shredded carrots, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, and 2 varieties of mushrooms (flat/black and button-shaped/white). I decided to simply boil the vegetables to capture their natural essence. I didn't realize, though, that none of these vegetables really have a distinct flavor, and they turned out kind of bland on their own. Despite that, I bet that these veggies would be a great addition to a dish with the right spices.
Edamame (soybeans) is one of my favorite foods. They have beneficial soy protein, lots of fiber, and vitamins to boot, all for little fat and calories - not to mention how fun they are to eat! You may already be familiar with Seapoint Farms Dry Roasted Edamame, as am I, but I was eager to try the fresher Seapoint Farms Edamame Lightly Salted Soybeans in Pods.
Preparation is a cinch: heat by either boiling or microwaving (with a little water), then enjoy! In my opinion, the soybeans in pods are much more fun to eat than the shelled or dried ones - just pull the pod through your teeth to get the beans. A healthy, filling snack that takes a while to eat - sounds perfect to me!
