I have a confession.  I didn’t eat as well I should have during the holidays.  I’ve recommitted to eating healthier and am focusing on finding new recipes to make my meals more interesting.  One of my new favorite healthier recipes is Edamame and Artichoke Salad.  And the best part is,  it’s as easy to make as it is healthy and delicious.

I’m excited to be participating in the blog tour for The MD Factor Diet, especially since I’m not alone in refocusing on eating healthier as the new year starts.  I was able to review The MD Factor Diet book and discover this recipe and other healthier, tasty recipes.  Additionally, the book shares information about metabolism dysfunction and the role it plays in weight gain and other health issues.

The ingredients were easy to pick up at the grocery store, no special shopping trips are needed.

Preparation took less than 10 minutes.  I’ll share the recipe below. I made a special lunch for my oldest “baby” and I to share before she returned to college last week.  I added some whole wheat crackers to go with the high protein low carb salad.  It was a wonderfully delicious lunch with wonderful company.

  1. I have never heard of Edamame and my husband and I are always looking for different salads to make. I do believe I will have to give this a try. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Living a healthy lifestyle is a priority for me and my family but we do sometimes fall into bad habits when schedules get hectic. That’s actually a problem we are facing now and our focus has been on maneuvering our schedules as much as possible to make sure we still have dinner together as often as possible. It forces me to make sure I am on top of healthy meal planning and all of us to slow down enough at least once a day to nourish ourselves.

  3. Looks so simple to make! My nutritionist has me on a new ‘diet’ to change my eating habits and he said I need to get creative with salads. šŸ™‚ Thanks for the idea!

  4. I would never have put that combination together, I like both main ingredients so I am sure it would be a hit.

  5. Ooh I could go for this salad right now! I have got to give this a try considering I don’t like having dressing on my salad!

  6. I have a confession! I have never had edamame and have always wanted to try it. This salad looks so refreshing.

  7. I’m in the same “ate too much over the holidays” boat and have been working like crazy to get back in the “downward” direction I was headed before Thanksgiving! šŸ™‚

  8. My new year’s resolution was to stop eating out so much and start cooking at home. Even on the busy nights where things are going on. So far it’s been working we went from eating out 3 nights a week to 1 night a week is our pizza night!

  9. cooking more at home instead of going out! drinking 10 glasses of water a day & buying FOODS instead of meals in the grocery store!

  10. I have never made edamame in anything but to eat straight. This looks delicious pinning it for later
