We pick back up with the Eating The Alphabet series this week with the letter E.
I’ve chosen Edamame since it’s a great protein filled snack that my whole family loves! We call them “pods” and like to have them lightly salted and eat them right out of the pod. They are readily available in my grocer’s freezer section and we like to buy the whole pods to steam, salt and snack! Food with Kid Appeal has a nice article here about the benefits of these immature soybeans and how to prepare and eat them. If you’re concerned about the media attention given to soy lately, it depends on the type of soy and that hype primarily relates to processed soy products and supplements. Check out this Joy of Soy article to make up your own mind.
In the meantime, we’ll be enjoying our vegetables this week as we continue Eating the Alphabet! How do you eat the alphabet?
