    Holy cow! you came up with a much bigger list then I would have! Those are some great ideas. I love edamame as a snack with a little salt!

    I absolutely LOVE vegetables – so this is like the ultimate green snack list for me lol Edamame is my favorite. Even my 5 year old will eat the entire bowl when I steam and salt them. Delicious ideas!

    That’s a pretty impressive list. I would not have been able to list that many. I can’t think of any more. My favorite would probably be okra – especially if it is breaded and fried!
