Hello & Happy Friday!!
Are you a HUGE fan of hummus?!
Then we have a lot in common!
(as long as you don’t buy the store bought brands lol)
Hummus is one of my fave go to’s for snacks as its easy, affordable, takes minutes to make, and you can achieve various flavors and blends with incorporating a diversity of seasonings or veggies (avocado, kale, spinach etc)
Although I’ve enjoyed edamame at restaurants and seen edamame hummus at times I never explored it myself.
Looking back all I can say is…
What, was I thinking lol..
Although edamame has less protein than garbanzo beans, they have less carbs, fat, and more vitamins.
Eating 1/2 cup of edamame will provide you with 60 percent of the daily value for folate and 8 percent of the DV for vitamin C, while 1/2 cup of garbanzo beans will provide you with only 33 percent of the DV for folate and 2 percent of the DV for vitamin C.
Folate is necessary for preventing birth defects and for making new cells, and vitamin C is essential for wound healing and preventing free radicals from damaging your cells.
If you’re getting bored with your “basic” hummus, you HAVE to try this new take on a classic snack!
