I came across a few food finds at Whole Foods. Are these SB acceptable? If so, what phase??

Roasted & Salted Inka Plantain Chips:
Ingredients: Plantains, palm olein and salt
0g sugar

Roasted and Salted Soynuts:
Ingredients: Soybuts, salt, palm oil

Roasted Edamame:
Ingredients:? not listed; doesn't taste salted though

For the soynuts or edamame....does that count as a bean serving, veggie or nut? So confused!

Seafood Salad:
Ingredients: Bay shrimp, imitation crab meat, onion, celery, mayonnaise, garlic powder

For the first 3 - they are very yummy and help satisfy the crunch. Just curious how good (or bad!) they are. I know to watch the calories because that counts too

Thanks for your expertise!

Plantains are similar to bananas, so I would put those in phase 2. I believe edamame and soy nuts (the soy nuts are the inside part of the edamame, correct?) are okay for phase 1. I would count them as a bean serving.

I'm new to SB though, so I might be wrong!

Plantains are definitely Phase II, but the palm olein may be a no-no due to saturated fat content. Not sure on this. The imitation crab meat is not good. It usually contains sugar, wheat or tapioca starch. All are not good on SB.
