Yummy Snack Alert: Edamame Beans

My biggest post-workout rule is to eat. If you go without fuel after exercise, then the effects can be adverse to what you set out to achieve- even if that was weight loss! It’s really important to get some kind of food into your system and I always opt for a protein rich option. However, that’s sometimes easier said than done.

I live a 45 minute commute away from my gym, meaning that by the time I get home and have a chance to cook I’m one, absolutely starving and two, my body has decided to start burning my muscle. Booo! So it’s really important that I snack straight after my workout to put me on until I can get to a proper meal. I set out to find the perfect snack for after my gym session and came across edamame.

Edamame is a healthy snack packed with protein, meaning that it’s perfect for your post-workout fix or mid-afternoon office lull! There’s around 11g of protein per 100g of edamame, which is more than what some protein products offer, without all of the other added ingredients. It’s a great source of many minerals and is low in fat and sugar. Oh and it tastes pretty nice too! Give them a try and let me know what you think! x
