Edamine is like a soy bean. You can get it fairly often at japanese restaurants or in the frozen isle of some supermarkets. Edamine is steamed. It tastes better when sea salt is sprinkled onto the shells. Now, you don't eat the shells. Instead, you kind of just suck the beans out from them. They have a lot of protein in them and are fairly good for you.

Some good snacks that I like: a serving of almonds (nonsalted), an apple with a tablespoon of peanut butter on it, whey isolate protein shake, babybel light cheese (the waxed kind), kashi go lean bars... and so many others!

I wouldn't call it a meal replacement... more of a protein supplement.It should never be a meal replacement unless you are eating 5-6 meals a day (as in... you are body building). If you are trying to lose weight, you still need to eat 3 well balanced meals. I would have protein shake for a pre or post workout as then your body has enough protein maintain muscle and excellerates fat loss. It also helps to prevent muscle tears/injuries. Make sure you drink low cal versions since you are trying to lose weight.

The brand I use is Optimum Nutrition [Gold Whey Standard]. This has the most bang for back - as in, highest quality. It comes in a variety of flavors and it's low cal. If I could post links I'd give it to you but I'll just tell you how to search it: go into google and search "optimum nutrition 100% whey gold standard". It should be the first link. If you have bad cholesterol, you are best to get a pure isolate protein shake (but these are twice the price). The shake I showed you is a mix between isolate and concentrate.

I think its also called Edamame (pronounced Ed-a-mom-aye), they are so good!

Another good snack is Hearts of Palm. 2 sticks are just 20 calories.

Shakes, the kind you buy not make, tend to be high in sugar and carbs. Though I occasionally indulge in an Slim Fast that tides me over for about 2-3hrs when I'm active (is says at least 4hrs, but that's advertisement for you.) I also like whey protein shakes, whew...whey carries.

I'm sure you'll get loads of ideas. Some of my favs are:

Cottage Cheese
Fruit
Hard boiled eggs (usually toss the yolks)
Baby carrots with hummus
Yogurt (sometimes with granola)
Cheese (good with an apple)
P'nut butter (also yummy w/ apple or banana)
Turkey Pepperoni

and so on...

I like Trader Joe's baked blue tortilla chips and salsa. I also make my own corn relish with black beans, corn, onion, tomatoes with green chilis and cilantro.

Just to clear up confusion about the name, the steamed soybean that I believe we are all referring to is exclusively called "edamame", translated to English meaning 'twig(eda) bean(mame)'

Anyway, here are some snacks I enjoy:
any kind of fruit, edamame, hummus with pita chips or carrots, yogurt, tablespoon of peanut butter on an apple, turkey bacon, whole wheat english muffins, salsa or guacamole with tortilla chips, fruit smoothie, laughing cow cheese wedge on whole grain crackers, hard boiled eggs, cottage cheese, etc.

For snacks, I like bananas, oranges, strawberries, and cherry tomatoes. Whenever I feel like I just need to sit down and eat a LOT of food, I go buy a pound of fresh strawberries (less than 200 calories) or a pint of cherry tomatoes (less than 100 calories) and chow down. I've eaten many a strawberry in the car on the way home from the gym.
