Recipe – Edamame, Pea and Mint Smash

That long stretch between lunch and dinner can play havoc on your blood sugar levels and missing out on the right mid afternoon snack can make it really hard to make positive choices come dinner time. The mistake most people make when trying to ‘be healthy’ is sticking to just 3 meals a day when in reality we need to keep the body topped up with fuel throughout the day. You wouldn’t expect your car to work on an empty tank so why expect your body too. This edamame recipe is super tasty, helps you up your greens and the egg will keep you full until dinner!

Here is one of my favourite mid afternoon snacks inspired by the amazing chefs at The Detox Kitchen.
