Last week we discussed the benefits of edamame.  In short, edamame is a fancy name for boiledsoy beans but they are full of beneficial nutrients; protein, iron, and fiberjust to name a few.  Despite its greatbenefits, most people do not know how to eat them except in the pod.  Mind you, it would be hard to get tired ofeating those tasty treats, but variety is the spice of life.  This week you will learn how to make AvocadoEdamame Salad.  My kids loved eating itwith a spoon, but you can make it more attractive to little fingers by adding aside of tortilla chips.
