Fav Fridays! Soy what?!

This week's Favorite Friday topic is:
You Fav Healthy Snack! 

So hard to choose but I will have to say EDAMAME (soy beans). Yum!
I love it with dinner (even though I make it for just me as Justin won't even try it because it has the word bean in it) or for a snack.

I love it.
Here's what you'll find in a half-cup serving of shelled edamame (or 1 1/8 cup edamame in the pods):
  • 120 calories
  • 9 grams fiber
  • 2.5 grams fat
  • 1.5 grams polyunsaturated fat (0.3 grams plant omega-3 fatty acids)
  • 0.5 gram monounsaturated fat
  • 11 grams protein
  • 13 grams carbohydrate
  • 15 mg sodium
  • 10% of the Daily Value for vitamin C
  • 10% Daily Value for iron
  • 8% Daily Value for vitamin A
  • 4% Daily Value for calcium

    We are off camping this weekend with the pregster Crystal & Troy (hopefully it stops raining - ah). 
    Last time we went camping was last summer when Cruz was just little, you can read about it here.
    This was when Justin was writing the blog!
    This year she is going to take up a little bit more of the tent!
    Last day at the zoo, I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...
    Have a great weekend!

    Haha Look at you, little blogger! Nice work on the blog babe! I told you I only like one kind of beans... Jelly beans. And none of those horrible little ones with crazy flavours. You always pop one thinking you know what it's gonna taste like and then.... Blahhhhh Buttered Popcorn!
