Has anyone here ever eaten edamame?

I just made some, it is super good!

They're these little beans in shells, and you bite down on the shells and the beans pop right into your mouth. :3

I tried them once. They're okay. I'd eat them often if I weren't allergic.

The beans look hairy close up, not sure I'd like the texture. Are they similar to plain old green beans?

They're very different, actually! Green beans have a waxy texture, whereas edamame have a more smooth texture, with a tiny bit of fuzz. It sounds gross but it's actually quite pleasant to bite down on! They're like little capsule snacks, and they're super good for you, too! I just made a whole bowl of them and it was only 60 calories. Much better than one of my Jenny Craig Anytime Bars!

I'll have to keep an eye out for those cute little bean critters next time I'm at the shop, they're so furry and cute looking. Jenny Craig is the worst you should try something like lite and easy, they have much better meals.

You should! They sell them everywhere, and they're pretty cheap, considering!

And I agree Jenny Craig isn't the best for you, but their chocolate bars are so good, and it's only 100 calories, there are so many worse things I could be eating. And yeah, they're expensive, too, but I have a good job and I won't miss the money.

I don't mind eating them fried/salted, but I prefer them in crisp salads (already peeled) with grilled chicken, snow peas, roasted red peppers, almonds, mandarin oranges, ginger/soy/sesame dressing.

Awesome! Are there any other great and healthy recipes you'd recommend!? You're a good salesmen for your wholesome little beans.

That is true! They have such tasty little bars. But lite and easy has such nice little deserts! You can't even tell they're light alternatives. Although their portions are so small. :(

Sure! Have you ever had rice and beans? Pinto beans work best, and jasmine rice. You just put them in a pot and boil it for 20 minutes, cover with white sauce, and you can enjoy a nice dinner or snack! They come in these really big bags too so they are super convenient.

I've never had Lite & Easy, how are they're desserts, you like them? Do they have chocolate?! I can't live without chocolate!

I went to jemmy craig last year and i actually put on weight. what a scam.
Woah!? Really? That is not surprising. Jenny Craig really needs to think about her recipes more. I guess she sells a lot so it's hard to make all those meals on her own, so maybe that's why.

I haven't, had that! Woah, that sounds super good and super easy! They sound like the perfect little snack or meal. :3 I wonder, do you think maybe some of these little critters in white-sauce as a healthy side with sausages would be nice?

I had a couple of boxes from a family member and most of their meals are super tasty! But again their portion sizes are so small and it makes you feel a little cheated. I think there are some chocolate snacks for some of you chocolate lovers out there! There are loads of treats like that.

I think she has people to help her now! From what I remember, she started in her basement, but she has a great personality and a great product, so that's why she became such a big deal and you can find her in most stores now!

Woah! I didn't even realize, she really has come so far with it, hasn't she? I'm glad to hear she grabbed herself some little helpers, she's kinda like the santa of healthy premade meals!

I think Santa really needs to ask Jenny Craig about business practice! It's not good to eat the cookies while you're on the job! Maybe he even could go on Jenny Craig and lose some weight. :3
