Parmesan Garlic Roasted Edamame
 
The best way to prevent an overeating binge fest is to 1) make sure your kitchen is stocked with only healthy food and 2) make sure you always have a healthy snack on hand. I take food with me every where I go. I've learned from the past that when I'm out and get hungry (or hangry as my friends and family would say) I need to eat, like now! My blood sugar drops, I get a little shaky, and I am no fun to be around. So having some sort of snack with me is essential to not only my well being, but the well being of those in my company. This is my newest favorite snack. Edamame is packed full of protein which will keep you full longer so that you don't run home and eat half a jar of almond butter because you are so hungry (not that I've done that or anything). Plus this is so tasty, even kids would love it!
