    I used to get it when I got sushi, but rarely ever other than that.

    Never really looked at the nutri. info until my brother brought a bag of dryed edamame home.

    Shit is packed with protein, way less fat that peanuts, and has alot of fiber. Pretty damn good too.

    Thought I'd pass the word along for those that haven't tried it.

    My girlfriend had a thing for those for a while, they are pretty tasty.

    It's Soybeans though, with all the hate for soy protein, I'm not sure it's such a good snack. :dunno:

    since the science is still wishy washy on the effects of phyto-estrogen on people, I wouldn't worry about having it once in a while, but I wouldn't eat it everyday either.

    fermented soy products aren't a worry because the phyto-estrogen is transformed into a non worrisome form IIRC

    serving suggestion: after cooking, place them in a colander and drizzle soy sauce and asian red pepper flakes. it's the bombdigity!

    it ok to consume soy but it's not a complete protein. it's missing an amino acid. been eating soy products all my life without bitch tits and my pecs are nice and tight. :naughty:

    i've been drinking soy for life and edimame is a staple of my diet for protein and carbs/fiber pre-cardio.

    i don't think i have tits but the only pics i posted i'm also skinnyfat all around.

    from what i'm reading, it seems like only the soy protein isolate (the kind that you'd likely find in soy protein powder... and maybe soymilk) is bad

    haven't read anything about the dangers of soybeans in natural form
